Mogens Lassen designed the iconic Kubus candleholder in 1962 after he spent years fine-tuning an iron prototype that stood on his desk. At the time of their creation, Kubus candleholders were reserved for family, good friends, and close architect colleagues. Kubus was put into production by Mogens Lassen’s grandson, Søren, after his death and is still crafted in Denmark. Among architects and design connoisseurs it has achieved the status of a modern international design icon with its sharp sense of contemporary Functionalist style.
Kubus is what most people think of as the quintessential By Lassen design object. When Søren Lassen began producing his grandfather’s candleholders in 1994, he chose 6-mm lacquered steel with fine matte surface texture to highlight the graphic and austere lines of the object. Please note: candles are not included and shown for illustration purposes.
