ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS IS . . . The Kubus 4 candleholder in COPPER <3 In 1962 Mogens Lassen designed the iconic Kubus candleholder with a sharp sense of contemporary functionalism, and the pieces were reserved for family and close architect colleagues. Now, the Kubus 4 is also available in copper, and therefore faithful to the original design which was made in blackened copper. ”It was completely natural for us to make the Kubus candleholder in copper, because Mogens Lassen loved the metal and its aesthetic qualities. In many of his old sketches we noticed that he used copper in his designs, and since the Kubus candleholder was originally made in blackened copper it seemed a natural extension of the collection which we’re usually very protective of,” explains Nadia Lassen, who is Mogens Lassen’s greatgranddaughter. The Kubus continues to be made in Denmark by skilled artisans and it has achieved the status of a modern international design icon among architects and design connoisseurs.
