With a sharp sense of contemporary Functionalist style, Mogens Lassen designed the iconic Kubus candleholder in 1962, a piece once reserved solely for family and close architect colleagues. In 1983 he reapproached his own geometric candleholders, and the result was Line, whose shape was conceived through a mathematical formula. The two candleholders form a single line, and the architectural look fits perfectly with contemporary minimalism. Kubus and Line are still crafted in Denmark, and among architects and design connoisseurs, it has achieved the status of a modern international design icon.
The Lassen brothers’ archive of architecture and furniture design represents the finest qualities of the Danish design tradition. A collection has been carefully and humbly selected, the furniture designs that were chosen to be reintroduced to the world will hopefully live a long life in the homes of future generations as beacons of the Danish design tradition that has inspired so many design talents.
