Our Bestlite BL5 Wall Lamp replica is an homage to Robert Dudley Best's work of art, with no association with the original producers.
Bestlite started production in the 30s and has been in continuous production ever since. The Bestlite range was created by acclaimed designer Robert Dudley Best, with clear references to the minimalist aesthetic of the Bauhaus School of the Arts. One of its best known enthusiasts was Winston Churchill, who came to depend on its confident gush of direct light for his late night reading.
This product was originally designed by Robert Dudley Best
Born in 1892 to the family that were partners in the large lighting manufacturers, Best & Lloyd. Despite the company's proud history of providing traditional lamps to a prestigious clientele, including Titanic and the Orient Express, Dudley Best was interested in a new collection that symbolised the spirit of the new age by appealing to the more avant-garde architects and setting a new agenda for lamp design. Inspired by what he had seen, Robert began his studies of industrial design in Paris and Düsseldorf, where he became close friends with Walter Gropius, the founder of the Bauhaus movement. It was during this time that he made the first sketches of what would become the iconic Bestlite design. Although Robert had great expectations for the Bestlite, the first lamps did not quite end up where he expected. They were sold to auto repair shops and the Royal Air Force where they were appreciated for their functionality. Loved by architects and designers the Bestlite is frequently used today in hotels and restaurants. But most of all Robert's Bestlite is found in the homes of people who appreciate the genuine and independent design.
Our replica of this product is a tribute to him.
