Classic Bauhaus Wall Lamp
The BL10 wall lamp is the largest of the classic Bauhaus wall lamps by Gubi. It has an extension arm and is flexible, practical and elegant.
Fixed to the wall, BL10 is rotatable and swiveling - therefore it can shed light on any spot in its reach. Thanks to the extendable arm, the lamp can also reach areas that are further away. After use BL10 can be pushed back to the wall to save space. The practical lamp is suitable as a reading lamp, working lamp, bathroom lamp or to bring light to a certain part of a room. The lam's simple design fits into every room and looks elegant both in the background as well as as the center piece.
The lampshade can be put into almost any position. A heavy floor plate ensures a secure and firm stand.
When Robert Dudley Best designed the lamps for the BL series in the 1930s, they were revolutionary simple and of an unusually clear and functional form. They are still regarded as examples of classic Bauhaus design. This has been enforced by the British designers close contact to Dessau, Weimar and Berlin, that were at the center of the Bauhaus movement back then.
Even the British prime minister Winston Churchill had a BL1 lamp on his desk in Whitehall and many architects and designers made some great designs under its light.
The wall lamp BL10 by Gubi is also available in different colors.
