Gubi Launches New Iconic Bestlite Collection

, , , , By Catherine

Gubi presents striking new additions to their Bestlite Collection. New colours and surfaces, comprising all brass, brass/matt white, brass/matt grey and brass/matt black, will be applied to selected models of Bestlite table, floor, wall and pendant lamps, including the BL3 floor lamp, which now returns to the collection with original Ø 21 cm shade.

Designed in 1930 by Robert Dudley Best, the Bestlite Collection has been in continuous production for eight decades. Now Bestlite enters its ninth decade with the launch of new versions of Bestlite, combining traditional brass finish with contemporary colours. The re-introduction of this authentic brass finish gives a fresh, modern twist to the timeless, iconic Bestlite design.

“I’ve always been acutely aware that any change or additions to the collection must be entirely in sympathy with the original design. Although Bestlite has not been available in brass for many years, the brass finish is entirely authentic … it gives the collection a new, softer, more contemporary feel and allows us to renew the collection whilst respecting its heritage.” Jacob Gubi, CCO, Gubi

As before, the entire Bestlite Collection will also be available in chrome/matte black, chrome/matte white and chrome/off-white.

The new Bestlite Collection is available online at and at selected retailers since January 2013.
