The Gubi BL5 Wall Lamp is a versatile, adjustable and modern lighting solution that complements both contemporary and traditional interiors.


The Gubi BL5 Wall Lamp is a simple design by Robert Dudley Best in 1930. It is inspired by Bauhaus. The lamp has an arm that moves in different directions and a shade that can be adjusted. This makes it a versatile option for different places.

Architectural and Functional Appeal

Garages and the Royal Air Force's engineering departments loved this lamp for its usefulness. It also gained recognition in the architectural community. The Architects Journal called it the first sign of Bauhaus in Britain. It showed its architectural and practical appeal.

Iconic Status

TWinston Churchill personally chose the Bestlite BL1 Table Lamp for his desk, solidifying its iconic status. This historical endorsement by a prominent figure further underscores its significance.


This wall-mounted lamp offers customisation through many metal finishes and bone china options. The lamp has a chrome or brass arm that can be adjusted. It can be mounted on a bar to change the height of the light. This lets you customize the design.


The Gubi BL5 Wall Lamp is easy to use with a switch and can be wired into your space. Made with high-quality materials, it is durable and has a two-year warranty for lasting quality and performance.

        Excellent product but more importantly during these difficult times was the customer service level and great delivery team ....

        take note Heal’s as you’ve not got a clue how to service customers

        Beautiful and high quality furniture!

        Excellent delivery and customer services, even during difficult times like Covid 19.

        Fantastic service, Jonathan was extremely helpful through my purchase.

        Definitely recommend and would use again.

        Thanks! Angela

        Olson + Bakers service and products have been outstanding. I can't recommend Jonathan at Olson + Baker enough.

        He is an absolute star and has gone out of his way to provide superb service.

        It has been an absolute pleasure buying a lovely piece of furniture from Olsen + Baker. Russell has been a delight to deal with, keeping me informed at every step of the delivery, even down to which colour would fit with my decor - nothing was too much.

        I can’t recommend highly enough.

        Excellent communication and speedy delivery...

        Couldn't have been better and will certainly buy from the company again.

        The service is superb and the website is so intuitive! 10 out of 10! :D Lee

        Really excellent customer service. Can not recommend this company highly enough - the products are high quality and their communication with the customer is first class. Jonathon always responded promptly to any queries and was very helpful.

        I would definitely buy from them again.

        Great range of products.

        Purchased a beautiful rug from here and had a smooth overall buying experience.

        Bought some lovely wine glasses as a gift, quick delivery, great customer service and high quality product.

        Would definitely buy from Olson and Baker again.

        Fantastic customer service throughout the ordering process.

        Great products - really pleased with my order.

        So glad I came across Olson & Baker for my home accessories that I would not find elsewhere on the High Street.

        Olson + Baker were wonderful to deal with.

        We purchased our item (a beautiful coat hook) but had to delay delivery due to a trip overseas.

        We weren't dealing with an automated system, just real people who cared enough to help.

        First class service.

        The Olson Baker team continue to deliver outstanding advice and product knowledge.

        Beautiful item arrived earlier than indicated.

        Customer service informed me of this & then followed up after delivery to make sure it arrived safely.

        Highly recommend!

        Recently purchased a Nordic Style candle holder, which I had admired at a recent stay at a holiday home in Norfolk.  Product arrived very quickly. Contact via email from Jonathan. Excellent customer service and a gorgeous product too.

        Thank you Jonathan and all at Olson and Baker.

        Lovely website, great communication, fast delivery and they came in at a price other shops couldn't compete with on the chair I was after.

        Easily recommended.

        Very good service, great communication and arrived very promptly

        Thank you
