With a good sense for contemporaneous, functional style, Mogens Lassen designed the iconic Kubus candleholder in 1962.
Mogens Lassen had already been working on the Kubus candleholder long 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 were 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.
Handicraft from Denmark
Today the Kubus 4 candleholders are still made by experienced craftsmen in the Danish Holstebro and thereby represent real Danish craftmanship. The candleholders from by Lassen are made of lacquered or copper-plated steel and are available in different versions.
