With a good sense for contemporaneous, 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, the geometric Kubus candleholder was originally created as a small series of one-off 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.
