BL5 Wall Lamp, Chrome, Black

About the Item

The timeless BL5 wall lamp was designed in 1930 by Robert Dudley Best, a British designer highly influenced by the school of Bauhaus. Being in continuous production ever since its origin, the Bestlite BL5 Wall Lamp stays true to its industrial roots and original design. With its mobile arm and shade, the wall lamp is perfect for the hallway, by the desk, as a bedside lamp or in the kitchen where the light needs to be directed. The Bestlite lamp design 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 BL5 Wall Lamp for his desk, Bestlite’s iconic status was secured. 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 height is adjustable and the lamp can be tilted 90° from horizontal to vertical, the shade can also be rotated 360°. Switch on back plate. MEASUREMENTS: lamp height: 34? tall Shade: 5.1? tall x 6.3? diameter.
