Bestlite BL3S Floor Lamp By Robert Dudley Best for Gubi FL26
The Gubi lighting Bestlite BL3S Floor Lamp is an iconic design synonymous with the cross pollination of European modernism in the 20th century. Originally designed in 1930 by Robert Dudley best of England, the crisply detailed floor lamp is heavily influenced by the German Bauhaus school of thought. Best applied the philosophy that fine art and craft could coexist to the Bestlite, resulting in the task oriented and simple structure seen today. The angled arm arcs the smooth aluminum shade for ideal reading light and is clasped with a hinge which adjusts the height of the shade along the central stem.
In 2001, Jacob and Sebastian Gubi took over their parent’s furniture business, transforming Gubi in to an internationally recognized design house for lighting, furniture and accessories. Based in Copenhagen, Denmark, Gubi is a purveyor of timeless and emerging designs, many of which are iconic and can be found in permanent collections around the world.
