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 was inspired by the style of the Bauhaus and is characterised by a precise geometry, where nothing where nothing is left to chance.
Kubus in different sizes
The Kubus candleholder was originally thought as a small series of one-off 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 for architects 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. It fits in wonderfully with the smaller versions 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 Holstebro and they thereby represent real Danish handicraft art.
