BL9 Pendant

Robert Dudley Best, 1930


Bestlite has been in continuous production since 1930. Robert Dudley Best (1892-1984) was fascinated by the Bauhaus movement's lean design and revolutionary demands for a new era free from superfluous decoration. It was in this spirit that he designed the Bestlite lamps. The unique aesthetic and functionality have made it a contemporary design icon.
