The Danish architect Mogens Lassen (1901-1987) was a pioneer of the Danish functionalism. In 1927 he left to work of an engineering company, but he did not enjoy the work or speak french. Paris however changed Lassen’s view on architecture and when he returned to Denmark he established his own studio.
Along with working in architecture he also designed furniture and other objects and his Kubus candlestick became an icon. Lassen started designing the first Kubus long before it was first produced in 1962. Every candlestick is manufactured with geometrical accuracy. The Kubus candlesticks were not put on sales, but Lassen gave them to family members and friends. The grandchildren and grand-grandchildren of Lassen later established the design company by Lassen to honor the work of Morgens and Flemming Lassen.
