Originally designed in 1930 by Robert Dudley Best of England, the Gubi lighting Bestlite BL2 Table Lamp is a design synonymous with European modernism in the 20th century. Influenced by the German Bauhaus school of thought, Best applied the idea that fine art and craft can coexist to the Bestlite, manifesting in a superbly crafted metal structure with absolute practicality. The smooth aluminum or brass shade seamlessly joins with the curved stem, angling the task light in a casual contrapposto stance. The iconic design is also known to be famously owned by Churchill and traveled with him during wartime.

Originally designed in 1930 by Robert Dudley Best of England, the Gubi lighting Bestlite BL2 Table Lamp is a design synonymous with European modernism in the 20th century. Influenced by the German Bauhaus school of thought, Best applied the idea that fine art and craft can coexist to the Bestlite, manifesting in a superbly crafted metal structure with absolute practicality. The smooth aluminum or brass shade seamlessly joins with the curved stem, angling the task light in a casual contrapposto stance. The iconic design is also known to be famously owned by Churchill and traveled with him during wartime.

VIEW CHART

Lumens

The amount of light that comes from a bulb, which has commonly been measured in watts. The more lumens, the brighter the bulb.

Wattage

A measurement of the power delivered to a component of an electric circuit (allowing a one-ampere current to flow through the component under the pressure of 1 volt.)

Bulb Shape

Bulb shapes are denoted with a letter, which describes the shape, and a number, which indicates the size. The number indicates the diameter of the light bulb at its widest part in eighths of an inch.

Base

The part of the bulb that connects to the fixture and its power supply. Bulb bases are denoted with the letter E, and a number which indicates the diameter of the bulb base at its widest part in millimeters.

Voltage

Indicates how much voltage a bulb can accept via the fixture it's installed in.

Light Color Temperature

The relative color from a light source, measured on the Kelvin temperature scale. Warm light is lower in color temperature (2700-3000 K) and cool, blue light is higher (5000 K).

Average Rated Life

The average amount time that a bulb is expected to last.

CRI

CRI = color rendering index. This number, which can go from 0 to 100, measures the ability of a light or bulb accurately renders colors. The higher the number, the better, with most quality bulbs these days measuring at least in the 80s.
