Part of the iconic Bestlite Collection, the elegant Bestlite BL1 Table Lamp was designed by Robert Dudley Best, and has been in continuous production since 1930.
Part of the beauty of the Bestlite BL1 is it's incredible functionality. The lamp is height adjustable and can be tilted 90° from horizontal to vertical, the shade can also be rotated 360°.
The lamp was designed at the end of the revolutionary Bauhaus movement, its elegant and clean lines, have strong references to the period. The Bestlite lamp was first gained popularity in garages and the Royal Air Force engineering departments due to its great functionality. Thanks to a feature in Architects Journal lauding Bestlite, public demand for these lamps soon followed.
The BL1 was even personally chosen by Winston Churchill the for his own desk, with this Bestlite's iconic status was secured. More than eighty years on, 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. The Bestlite Collection is one of the most comprehensive and functional collections of lighting of all time, including ten different table lamps, floor lamps, wall lamps and pendant lamps, whose light can be adjusted in every way.
