With a sharp sense of contemporary functionalist style, Mogens Lassen designed the iconic Kubus candleholder in 1962.
Mogens Lassen actually worked on the Kubus candleholder for a long time before in 1962 arriving at the shape we know today. 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.
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 candleholders from by Lassen beautify this restaurant - but now far more people can enjoy the iconic design.
Today, the Kubus 1 candleholders are made by skilled artisans in Holstebro, and thus represent true Danish craftsmanship. The candleholders are made out of lacquered steel from by Lassen and are available in different versions.
