With a good sense for contemporary, functional style Mogens Lassen designed the iconic Kubus candleholder in the year 1962.
Mogens Lassen had already been working a long time on the Kubus candleholder before the form that we know since 1962 emerged. The known architect and designer might have suffered from dyslexia – but his sense of proportions and mathematics was flawless: every single Kubus is constructed with great accuracy and a precise aspect ratio. Lassen left absolutely nothing to chance.
Made by local craftsmen in Ordrup, Kubus was originally created as a small series of single pieces for Mogens Lassen’s family and close friends. The experiment with forms and functions however, ended up in a collection of products that became iconic in modern design amongst architects and design-enthusiasts.
Handicraft from Denmark
Today the Kubus candleholders are still made by experienced craftsmen in the Danish Holstebro and embody real Danish handicraft. The lacquered or coated steel made candleholders are available in different variants.Also in our blog:
