Gubi Bestlite BL9XL ø60cm pendant Bestlite has been in continuous production since 1930. Robert Dudley Best (1892 – 1984) was fascinated by the Bauhaus movement’s lean design and revolutionary demands for a new era free from superfluous decoration. It was in this spirit that he designed the Bestlite lamps. Its unique aesthetic and functionality have made it a contemporary design icon.
The Bestlite collection includes table lamps, floor lamps, wall lamps and pendants in several sizes. The materials are chrome-plated steel stems and fittings, and powder-coated aluminium shades. On the table lamps and floor lamps the base is made of powder-coated aluminium with an integrated steel counterweight. All wires are textile covered with colour matching the shade and base. The Bestlite collection is also available in brass where all steel parts have been substituted with solid brass material. To obtain a maintenance-free brass surface, a surface layer of clear lacquer has been applied.
A small key is included to tighten the joint of the lamp arm if needed.
