BL1 Table Light

BL1 Table Light


Designed by Robert Dudley Best in 1930, the Bestlite BL1 Table Lamp is a coveted design worldwide with strong references to Bauhaus. Winston Churchill, former Prime Minister of Great Britain, personally chose the Bestlite BL1 Table Lamp for his desk in the Whitehall and history records that Churchill even took the lamp with him on his countless trips around the world. This was the big breakthrough for the Bestlite, which has made it a design classic today.

The minimalistic yet distinctive design makes it the perfect fit for any home office, workspace, creative corner or even as the lighting at your bedside table or in the living room.

The height is adjustable and the lamp can be tilted 90 degrees from horizontal to vertical, the shade can also be rotated 360 degrees. The textile cord matches the shade, except full chrome which is black, and all brass is golden.
