Bestlite lamps are steeped in a triumphant design history. Robert Dudley Best drew the first drafts of the lamp that would later become synonymous with his name when he studied to become an industrial designer in Paris and Dusseldorf. As the lamp was the first example of Bauhaus in the UK, strong arguments were needed before the lamp could be put into production. The lamp was produced by the manufacturing firm Best & Lloyd, founded by Best’s family in 1840. After mention in the prominent architectural magazine, Architects’ Journal, the architectural community opened its eyes to the lamp’s potential. Bestlite gained everlasting fame when Winston Churchill placed one on his desk in Whitehall.
The BL6 wall sconce combines the original Bauhaus inspiration with a modern, sleek design – perfect for beside a favorite reading chair. Or, in an homage to Churchill, behind your desk.
