Iconic Kubus Candlestick
With a keen sense of contemporary, functionalist style, Mogens Lassen designed the iconic Kubus candlestick in 196 2.
Mogens Lassen had already been working on the Kubus Candlestick until the form emerged as we have known it since 1962. While the famous architect and designer may have suffered from dyslexia - his sense of proportion and mathematics was impeccable: each individual Kubus has been constructed with great exactitude and a precise aspect ratio. Absolutely nothing was left to chance by Lassen.
Originally, Mogens Lassen designed the Kubus 1 for a restaurant in Zealand, for which he also designed the rest of the interior. As intended by the inventor, the geometric candlestick gathered people around the tables and delighted them with its captivatingly simple yet unusual shape. Even today the Kubus 1 candlesticks from by Lassen still adorn this restaurant - but now many more people can enjoy the iconic design.
Even today, the by Lassen Kubus 1 candle holders are still made by skilled craftsmen in Holstebro, Denmark, representing true Danish craftsmanship. Made of lacquered steel, the candlesticks from by Lassen are available in different variants.
