The story behind The Robert Dudley Best BL 5 Wall Lamp

As heir to the world's largest lighting factory, Robert Dudley Best spent much of the 1920s updating his company's product range, and embarking on research trips to mainland Europe. After visiting the International Exhibition of Modern Design in Paris and seeing work by Le Corbusier and Mies van der Rohe, he decided to study industrial design in Paris and Dusseldorf. Best was heavily influenced by his friend, Walter Gropius and the Bauhaus movement that Gropius founded. He drew on this inspiration when produing the BL 5 Wall Light. This understated, but striking, piece brought energy and style to every room it hung in, making it an instant British classic.

1892 - 1984 (England)

Born in Birmingham, England in the late 19th Century, Robert Dudley Best was a man with lighting in his blood. As the heir to the world's largest lighting factory, he was always destined to step into the field of interior design, but his eccentricity and flair pushed his designs into a direction that few could have predicted. In the mid-20s, feeling that his company's range was outdated, he took on a major tour of Europe, visiting the Exhibition of Modern Art in Paris, where he was heavily influenced by the work of Le Corbusier and Mies van der Rohe. He would go onto study design in Paris and Dusseldorf, meeting and befriending Walter Gropius, the co-founder of the Bauhaus Movement in the process. It was Gropius who would leave a lasting impression on his work, which is present in his most famous range, the Bestlite Series.
