Quick Ship BL6 Hard-Wired Wall Lamp by Gubi
The Quick Ship BL6 Hard-Wired Wall Lamp by Gubi is a timeless piece that exudes industrial roots and original design. Designed in 1930 by Robert Dudley Best, this lamp features a mobile arm and shade, making it perfect for various spaces such as the hallway, desk area, bedside, or kitchen where directed light is needed.
Originally embraced by garages and the Royal Air Force engineering departments for its exceptional functionality, the Bestlite lamp garnered attention for being the first evidence of Bauhaus in Britain, earning it a feature in Architects Journal. Its iconic status was further solidified when Winston Churchill personally selected the Bestlite BL1 Table Lamp for his desk.
With a place in the permanent collections of the Victoria & Albert Museum and the Design Museum in London, the Bestlite has continued to captivate architects, designers, and design enthusiasts, evolving into a contemporary classic.
