Product Description

Bestliste started production in the 30s and has been in continuous production ever since and has showed no signs of slowing down. The Bestlite range was created by acclaimed designer Robert Dudley Best, gaining influence from the Bauhaus.

Bauhaus was a school in Weimar, Germany that aimed to combine practical crafts with the fine arts and gained fame for design concepts that it published and taught. Bauhaus had a large influence on developments in art, architecture, graphic design, interior design and industrial design and created a new wave of Modernist architecture and modern design.

Eighty years later, the Bestlite collection has stayed close to its roots and kept true to its industrial original design. Winston Churchill was a famous Bestlite enthusiast and the Bestlite has been granted a permanent place in both the Victoria & Albert Museum and the Design Museum in London.

About Robert Dudley Best

Robert Dudley Best (1892-1984) was heir to the world's largest lighting factory, founded in Birmingham in 1840. Despite its proud history, Best felt that the lamp designs produced by the factory were outdated. In 1925, Best visited the International Exhibition of Modern Design in Paris, where many of the designs exhibited were influenced by the work of Le Corbusier and Mies van der Rohe.

Inspired by what he had seen, Best began his studies of industrial design in Paris and Düsseldorf, where he became close friends with Walter Gropius, the founder of the Bauhaus movement. It was during this time that he made the first sketches of what would become the iconic Bestlite design.
