Description

Showing off its industrial roots, the Bestlite wall light variation BL5 is both highly functional and elegantly engineered. The adjustable arm moves up and down and can be positioned horizontally or vertically and the shade is moveable as well. Designed by the British designer Robert Dudley Best in 1930, the utilitarian ethos and now-classic lines were influenced by the Bauhaus credo of the era. The lamp serves equally well mounted over a desk, at bedside for reading or even in the kitchen when the light needs to be directed at a workstation.

Design is an unceasing continuum, believes this Danish house, now owned by a second generation. Owner and creative director Jacob Gubi Olsen inherited the helm from his parents Gubi and Lisbeth Larson, who founded the business to showcase their postmodern furniture. Under Jacob’s watch, Gubi added a global focus to its roots in Copenhagen, with a cosmopolitan array of furniture, lighting and interior objects.

Alongside 20th Century icons such as Robert Dudley Best and Greta Magnusson-Grossman, the design house has championed a new wave of design studios including 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. I felt they had something in common,” says Jacobs. “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.”
