Robert Dudley Best was the heir to Best & Lloyd, one of the world’s largest lighting factory. After visiting the International Exhbitionn of Modern Design in Paris, Dudley Best was inspired to study industrial design, during which he started sketching what would now come to be known as the Bestlite lamps for Scandinavian brand Gubi. Dudley Best was also greatly influenced by Bauhaus, a movement distinguished by clean, rigid lines.
