This Danish and Scandinavian Gubi Bestlite BL4 Floor Lamp-Chrome/Black has an industrial yet modern twist. With a chrome frame and a black metal shade this designer floor lamp is ideal for any living, dining and bedroom interior space.
The Gubi Bestlite BL4 Floor Lamp-Chrome/Black was designed in 1930 by Robert Dudley Best, a British designer highly influenced by Bauhaus. Its clean lines and elegant expression are combined with great functionality of the adjustable arm, both horizontal and vertical, and movable shade. Available in a variety of finishes, the Gubi Bestlite BL4 Floor Lamp-Chrome/Black works as reading light in any contemporary home where statement lighting is sought for.
The Bestlite lamp design was first adopted by garages and the Royal Air Force engineering departments due to its great functionality. A feature in Architects Journal lauding Bestlite with the title of the first evidence of Bauhaus in Britain brought the lamp to the attention of the design conscious. Public demand for the Bestlite lamps soon followed and, when Winston Churchill personally chose the Bestlite BL1 Table Lamp for his desk, Bestlite’s iconic status was secured.
The Bestlite design stays close to its industrial roots and true to its original design. Bestlite is held in permanent collections at both the Victoria & Albert Museum and the Design Museum in London. Loved by architects, designers and design aficionados throughout its long history, today, Bestlite has become a contemporary classic.
The height on this Gubi Bestlite BL4 Floor Lamp-Chrome/Black is adjustable and the lamp can be tilted 90° from horizontal to vertical, the shade can also be rotated 360°. The textile cord matches the shade, except full chrome which is black, and all brass is golden.
