With a sharp sense of contemporary Functionalist style, Mogens Lassen designed the iconic Kubus candleholder in 1962.
Mogens Lassen actually worked on the Kubus candlestick for a long time before arriving at the shape we know today in 1962. Mogens Lassen may have been dyslexic, but his sense of proportion and mathematics were flawless: Each individual Kubus candlestick is made with exactitude and the relationship between the sides calculated with great precision. Absolutely nothing has been left to chance. The collection developed into a mathematical series of candlesticks topped with candleholders.
Originally, Mogens Lassen created the Kubus 1 for a restaurant in Zealand, for which he also designed the rest of the interior. Just like it was planned by the inventor, the geometrical candleholder gathered people around the tables and inspired them with its impressively simple and still unusual form. Even today the Kubus 1 candleholder by by Lassen delights this restaurant - but nowadays even more people can enjoy the iconic design.
Today, the Kubus candlesticks are made by skilled artisans in Holstebro, and thus represent true Danish craftsmanship. The candleholders are made out of lacquered steel by the brand by Lassen and are available in different variants.
