    Robert Dudley Best, Bauhaus. (and how cool is it to have "Best" as your last name??)

    It would look wonderful on my desk! I love the style of the lamp. Thank you so much for the giveaway!

    1.

    The Bestlite BL 2 table lamp was designed in 1930 by Robert Dudley Best. It was Britain's first example for the Bauhaus style. The Bestlite only experienced its breakthrough, when Winston Churchill put one on his desk in the Whitehall.

    2.

    Against Churchill`s idea of putting it on a desk, I would prefer to decorate it in my bedroom with rough walls and old painted wooden boxes.

  • Jürgen says:

    1. It was designed by Robert Dudley best with influences from the Bauhaus and the 1925 International Exhibition of Modern and Industrial Arts in Paris.



    2. I would put it on a board behind the sofa in my living room (black and white coloured all over). We sit there in the evening, reading or looking at some blogs, but sometimes also during the days for work. As the room unfortunately isn't too bright, the Bestlight would brighten up the whole room and be a very classic and stylish eyecatcher.

  • Dirk says:

    Obviously Bauhaus influenced: clear and perfect lines and dimensions. A great example of form follows function. It's in one line with the great Kaiser-Idell lamp design. This beauty would match perfectly the desk - influenced by a design from German designer Helmut Magg ( google for helmut magg lady desk), which I am building right now for my wife.



    merry xmas to Denmark

    1: Bestlite was designed by Robert Dudley Best, he was inspired by the Bauhaus style.



    2: I would put this beauty on a white, stylish desk that stand against a wall painted in the whitest of white. On the wall is a blackboard and black and white pictures of the family. At first glint it looks like a clean nice place in our home, but the fact is that there is a place we would rather not sit at. The desk is fore the overtime hours me or my husband have to work instead of being with each other or the children. And for that matter, it is the place where we pay our bills and realize the dream of a Bestlite is too far away. A BL-2 would, as you understand, light up this place in several ways! I do not know what to write in order to win so I write from my heart, a heart with a passion for design classics such as the Bestlite, although the brain and the wallet says no. But you should always keep on dreaming, right? :-)

    It was ROBERT DUDLEY BEST who designed it and who was influenced and impressed by the clean style of the BAUHAUS movement.

    He studied at the "Kunstgewerbeschule Düsseldorf", wich is now called the "peter behrens school of architecture" (PBSA) where I did my interior design master this summer.

    For that reason I would place it in the entrance of my new flat. On my beautiful old sidetable from the fleamarket - to remind me every day, when I come home, for what reason I did my studies and why I still love what I do!!!

    2. We bought a beautiful leather butterfly chair two years ago, and where thinking of the chair as a perfect readingspace. Though, we still haven't bought a lamp to go with it so the chair just stands there without beeing used. Bestlite is the lamp we are dreaming of, and after two years of searching we do now know that no other lamp can compete with it. Still, it is a bit pricy for students...

    Robert Dudley Best drew the first drafts of the lamp that would later become synonymous with his name when he studied to become an industrial designer in Paris and Düsseldorf....the lamp was the first example of Bauhaus in the UK. It would put it in my reading corner. I like it so much, i hope to be lucky enough this time :)

    2. Jag bor i en liten sekelskiftslägenhet där jag har sovrummet och min atelje/arbetsrum i ett. I somras byggde jag ett låååångt vitt sideboard som hålls ihop av metallstänger och på det satte jag hjul. Bygga kan jag (med hjälp av min pojkvän), men någon elektriker eller lamptillverkare är jag inte. Så därpå skulle jag placera lampan, på mitt vita sideboard. (Och vårda den fina lampan som min bebis i resten av mitt liv.)

    What a great givaway!



    Here are some answers:



    1.Lamp was designed by Robert Dudley Best.It was the very first british product inspired by Bauhaus.



    2.I would put it on my bedside table.And I would like to make a justification:



    a)next to my bed I have old Ikea Lersta lamp,which is without base,so it's leaning against the wall.Looks messy and sometimes hit my head while I'm sleeping.Believe me or not,but I broke it making the bed.Yes,it is possible.And with the Bestlite lamp I promise you to be much more careful!



    b)I won't be a famous politician,but it would be great to have something that was standing on Winston's Churchill desk.And have its own place in Design Museum,too!

    1: The Best light was designed by Robert Dudley Best, and he was strongly inspired by the style of the Bauhaus School in Weimer.

    The designer is Richard Dudley Best, and his designs were influenced by the Bauhaus.



    I'd put it in my bedroom (all white), next to my rocking chair where I nurse my daughter. It would be such a gorgeous modern touch.

    I would love to put it on one of the wooden boxes in my reading/working-room next to a wall of books.

    I would put it on the piano, where it would illuminate the music when my little daughter and I play duets!

    2. I'm gonna place it on a side table, next to my lounge chair in a living room of my loft. It would be a great match to the black lounge chair.

    1.Robert Dudley Best studied in Dusseldorf at the School for Industrial Design and also in Paris at the Furniture Atelier - he attended the International exposition in Paris in 1925 (5 years before this design was put into production) - he is said to have been influenced by the work there of Mies van der Rohe and Le Corbusier, he contacted Dessau, Weimar and Berlin where the founders of the Bauhaus taught. It is also said the founder of the Bauhaus Walter Gropius became friendly with Best in this period. Other influences may have included the Arts and Crafts Movement in Britain. 2.My 1901 house had electricity installed in the 1930s and I would put this lamp on top of the pump organ which is in the entry foyer, as an indicator that the switch from candlelight to electric light happened in the lifetime of this building. besides - it would look fabulous there!

    Influenced by the Bauhaus movement, Robert Dudley Best designed the Bestlite in 1930. It's beautiful as a table or desk lamp, as a floor lamp and paired as wall lights framing your bed - I first started paying attention to Bestlite thanks to your blog Emma - I even wrote you a couple of years ago, to ask you about them when I noticed them in a photo you posted!

    Needless to say this is my favorite Advent giveaway, next to the stacking glasses...I could see it on my desk, or in the living room on a table behind the sofa to add a little sleek industrial vibe, or in my hallway to light up the dark end! I would probably try all three spots to see where it would feel the most at home!

    This is my favorite Emma giveaway to date, next to the stacking stemmed glasses! If I were lucky enough to win, I've got three spots to light up at our place: my desk, on a table behind my sofa or at the end of my dim hall... I would ask Bestlite choose its favourite spot!

    1) As the Bestlite company describe on their website, the lamp was designed by Robert Dudley, who in turn was influenced in his design approach by the German Bauhaus movement.

    2) This lamp would go on top of a table/desk placed in front a window in our renovated farmhouse in Italy - overlooking the Piemontese hills!

    The bestlite would light up the otherwise pretty dark corner.
