Classic Bauhaus floor lamp
BL3 from Gubi is a practical luminaire with the raw charm of a true Bauhaus classic. BL3 transfers the functionalist design of the BL series to a floor lamp that meets the highest standards of form and function.
The BL3 floor lamp is infinitely height-adjustable, rotatable and swiveling and is thus able to optimally illuminate every corner in the room. The pivotal point is the rotating element on the frame and a ball joint on the lamp head. The lampshade can thus be brought into almost any position, allowing the light to be directed optimally and specifically. A heavy base plate at the foot of the lamp ensures a safe and firm stand.
At the time when Robert Dudley Best designed the lamps of the BL series - it was in the 1930s - they were revolutionarily simple and had a clear and unusually functional design language for the conditions of the time. As such, they are still considered examples of classic Bauhaus design today. This was reinforced by the fact that the Briton Robert Dudley Best maintained close contacts with Dessau, Weimar and Berlin, the centers of the German Bauhaus movement at the time.
Even two-time British Prime Minister Winston Churchill had a BL1 lamp on his desk in Whitehall, and many architects and designers worked out great designs under your light.
The BL3 floor lamp from Gubi is available in different colors.
