BL5 Wall Lamp



Product Details

Designed by the British designer Robert Dudley Best in 1930, the Bestlite BL5 Wall Lamp by GUBI exudes simplicity and clean lines. Dudley was highly influenced by the school from Bauhaus. The BL5 Wall Lamp, with it's adjustable horizontal and vertical arms and moveable shade, suits well by the desk, as a bedside lamp, or in the kitchen.

The Bestlite lamp design was first adopted by garages and the Royal Air Force engineering departments due to its great functionality. A feature in Architects Journal lauding Bestlite with the title of the first evidence of Bauhaus in Britain brought the lamp to the attention of the design conscious. Public demand for the Bestlite lamps soon followed and, when Winston Churchill personally chose the Bestlite BL1 Table Lamp for his desk, Bestlite's iconic status was secured.

The Bestlite design stays close to its industrial roots and true to its original design. Bestlite is held in permanent collections at both the Victoria & Albert Museum and the Design Museum in London. Loved by architects, designers and design aficionados throughout its long history, today, Bestlite has become a contemporary classic.
