The history of Bestlite goes back to 1930, where the Bestlite lamp was designed by British manufacturer, Robert Dudley Best. During World War II, the Bestlite lamp became a national treasure, when Winston Churchill had a Bestlite BL1 on his desk in the protection bunker under Whitehall. The Bestlite lamps are characterized by simple and elegant design, which has made Bestlite a timeless classic. Bestlite lamps are manufactured so the lamp is very adjustable, which makes it incredibly functional.

The Greatest designers of Bestlite

The very first thoughts and sketches were made by Robert Dudley Best, while he was still studying design in Paris. Along his father, who reluctantly agreed to produce the lamp in his factory, Best & Lloyd, they started one of the design fairytales of the century. The attention and recognition Robert Dudley Best received was the result of his fascination of minimalistic design and the innovative Bauhaus-style that had cut out any superfluous finery. In this spirit, he created the Bestlite lamps.
