Robert Dudley Best was a manufacturer that became very involved with the modern design industry during and after both World Wars.

He was a trained metal designer after studying at a school in Dusseldorf, and when he took over his Father’s industrial light manufacturing business in Birmingham, he became even more involved in modern design and art. Best was an ardent campaigner for better art-school education for industrial apprentices. His iconic ‘Bestlite’, a Bauhaus styled desk-lamp, was one of his most popular creations and was even used by Winston Churchill in Whitehall.

The Bestlite has stood the test of time as an amazing piece of design simplicity, spawning many different products that are designed in the same way. At Ferrious we have a great selection of Bestlite’s to choose from. We have the Bestlite BL1, which is a versatile wall lamp perfect for throwing light in rooms with little floor space and our Bestlite BL9 makes the perfect main light for any room and will compliment the wall lamp perfectly.

If you need a light for your desk then our Bestlite BL2 is perfect for a stylish desk lamp, especially if you want to emulate Churchill or if you have an eye for vintage style and design. If you have plenty of floor space and are looking for a standing lamp, then the Bestlite BL3m is a great product that will add a sense of style to any room.
