A sample product of the series in a representative store! (Wall lamp BL7, gray / brass)

The luminaire collection is the work of the British designer Robert Dudley Best from the 1930s, influenced by the aesthetics of the Bauhaus. The BL6 series wall lamp variant is pa luminaire with cool lines but an elegant look, the charm of which lies in the simplicity inspired by the Bauhaus design flow. The different luminaires in different finishes and colors, horizontally as well as vertically adjustable stem and movable dome make it ideal for rooms of different styles where functional, directional light is required. Place the luminaire in your home office, in the bedroom next to the bed or in the kitchen, and complete the room with a stylish and timeless light source.

Thanks to its functionality, the luminaire was first used in garages and in the British Royal Air Force's engineering department. The breakthrough in the world of design took place thanks to the well-known magazine "Architects Journal", where the Bestlite luminaire was awarded the title of "the first British proof of the Bauhaus". This was accompanied by a high demand for luminaires. Former British Prime Minister Winston Churchill personally chose a BL1 table lamp for his desk in Whitehall, which, according to historical sources, he always carried on trips around the world. It was a major breakthrough for the luminaire, which made it a true design classic.

Authentic industrial design with a long history remains close to its roots even today and corresponds to its original design. The design gem loved by architects and designers is on display at the Victoria & Albert Museum as well as the Design Museum in London. 

The Bestlite BL collection also includes a selection of table, floor and wall luminaires in different finishes.
