Audo Copenhagen's Kubus candleholder was designed in 1962 by the Danish architect and designer Mogens Lassen. Lassen, inspired by the Bauhaus movement, wanted to protest against excessive ornamentation and created a geometric, sharp-edged and stripped-down candleholder. Over time, Kubus has become one of the classics of Danish design, delighting both homes and public spaces with its minimalist elegance.

The Danish architect Mogens Lassen (1901-1987) was a pioneer of Danish functionalism. In 1927 he left to work for an engineering company, but he did not enjoy the work nor 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 Lassen also designed furniture and other objects, and his Kubus candlestick has become an icon of Danish design. Lassen started designing the first Kubus long before it was first produced in 1962 - the Kubus candlesticks were not put on the market, and Lassen gave them to family members and friends. The grandchildren and grand-grandchildren of Lassen established the design company By Lassen in 2008 to honor the work of Mogens Lassen and his brother Flemming Lassen.View all products
