Iconic candleholder by Mogens Lassen
The Danish architect and designer Mogens Lassen created the iconic Kubus candleholder in 1962 with a sharp sense of contemporary functionalist style. Kubus is characterized by a precise geometry, where nothing came by chance, since it was inspired by the style of the Bauhaus.
Cube in different sizes
The Kubus candleholder was originally thought as a small series of single pieces for Mogens Lassen’s family and close friends. A collection of products emerged out of the experimenting with shapes and functions, which became modern design icons known among archtecture and design enthusiasts. Kubus is available in different sizes and accordingly for a different number of candles: Kubus 8 holds 8 candles and it is one of the biggest candleholders with its dimensions of 23 x 23 cm. He harmonises superbly with the smaller variants for 4 candles or for 1 candle.
The lacquered or copper-plated steel candleholder Kubus 8 of by Lassen is still made by experienced craftsmen in the Danish Hostebro and they therewith represent real Danish handicraft art.
