The Bestlite Collection, designed by Robert Dudley Best, has been in continuous production since 1930. Designed at the end of the revolutionary Bauhaus movement, the Bestlite Collection, with its elegant and clean lines, has strong references to the period.

The Bestlite lamp was first adopted by garages and the Royal Air Force engineering departments due to its great functionality. A feature in Architects Journal lauding Bestlite with the title of the first evidence of Bauhaus in Britain brought the lamp to the attention of the design conscious. Public demand for the Bestlite lamps soon followed and, when Winston Churchill personally chose the Bestlite BL1 Table Lamp for his desk, Bestlite's iconic status was secured.

More than eighty years on, the Bestlite design stays close to its industrial roots and true to its original design. Bestlite is 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 long history, today, Bestlite has become a contemporary classic.

The Bestlite Collection is one of the most comprehensive and functional collections of lighting of all time, including ten different table lamps, floor lamps, wall lamps and pendant lamps, whose light can be adjusted in every way.
