Compact Bauhaus Wall Lamp
The handy and classic BL7 Bauhaus lamp by Gubi is the most reduced and most compact of the BL wall lamps but not any less functional.
Fixed to the wall the characteristic shade of the lamp sticks out from the wall on a short arm. The lamp shade can be brought into almost any position and therefore the lamp is able to light any spot in its reach. The functional lamp is also suitable as a reading lamp, working place lamp, bathroom lamp or for lighting a certain part of a room.
The simple design of the lamp fits every room and it looks elegant both in the background and as the centre of an ensemble. The design of the BL7 is even further reduced compared to other lamps of the BL series. However, its belonging to the family of Bauhaus lamps is still clearly visible.
When Robert Dudley Best designed the lamps of the BL series in the 1930s they were revolutionary simple and of unusually clear and functional forms. They are still regarded as examples of classic Bauhaus design. This has been enforced by the British designers close contacts to Dessau, Weimar and Berlin, which were the centres of the Bauhaus movement back then.
Even the British premier Winston Churchill had a BL1 lamp standing on his desk in Whitehall and many architects and designers made some great designs under its light.
The wall lamp BL7 by Gubi is lso available in further colours.
