Description

The granddaddy of the Bestlite pendant series, the extra large BL9 originated in 1930 with the British designer Robert Dudley Best. Following along Bauhaus ideas about functionality and form, he created a timeless lamp that allows for any number of variations. Here, the shade is the focus, as a outsize version in either charcoal black or grey with the choice of brass or black fittings. A classic by any estimation, it gives a directed light that's perfectly suited for both kitchen and dining settings in almost any interior style.

Brand

Gubi

Now led creatively by the couple’s son Jacob Gubi Olsen, Danish brand Gubi was originally founded in 1967 as a vehicle for the modernist furniture designs and textile catalog of husband-and-wife Gubi and Lisbeth Larson. Under Jacob’s watch, the company added a global focus to its roots in Copenhagen with a cosmopolitan array of furniture, lighting and interior objects. Alongside standouts from the 20th century, he has introduced a new generation of designers from companies such as GamFratesi, Space Copenhagen and OeO Studio.

“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.”
