From the Bestlite series, BL7 takes the signature shade and enlarges it to eye-catching proportions as a wall-mounted fixture. Launched by Brit design icon Robert Dudley Best in 1930, the lamp melds an industrial influence with the modernist philosophy of the Bauhaus movement. With its movable shade in finishes ranging from blackened brass to bone china, it’s a great piece in a hallway, at bedside or for task lighting in the kitchen—alone, in pairs or serial groupings.

“I started out with two very strong designs, Bestlite—a Bauhaus collection designed in 1930—and Gubi Chair, designed in 2003” Jacob says (both available at A+R). “I felt they had something in common,” he continues. “Iconic appearance, functional design, high quality, aesthetic design language and adaptable for many different kinds of interiors. I took these values as a guideline for any new designs added to the collection ever since.”
