Bestlite Porcelain Collection

Robert Dudley Best, 2014

OVERVIEW

The Bestlite design company has a long history of prestige thanks to the partnership of industrial designer Robert Dudley Best and his family’s manufacturing firm—Best & Lloyd, founded in 1840. 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 drafted the first model of this Bauhaus-inspired lamp. After a mention in Architects’ Journal, the collection's popularity grew and it was considered the first Bauhaus product produced in the UK. Once Winston Churchill placed a Bestlite lamp on his desk in Whitehall, the company gained everlasting fame. Bestlite pieces are 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 80-year history, today, Bestlite enjoys global iconic status.
