The iconic Kubus collection, designed in 1962 by architect Mogens Lassen, is now being introduced in copper.
With a keen 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 such as Arne Jacobsen and Mogens Lassen’s architect brother, Flemming Lassen. The Kubus candleholder was originally made in blackened copper, and with time the candleholder will attain a natural patina and verdigris, taking on exactly the same green colour we know from the beautiful old copper roofs in Copenhagen.
The Kubus 4 in copper was launched last year in selected design and interior shops, and the copper version has already won many fans both at home and abroad. The collection is now complete with the addition of Kubus 1, Kubus 8, Line and the Kubus Bowls, which will all be available in copper at selected retailers in March.
”We are very pleased to be able to offer the entire Kubus collection in copper, as we have noted a huge amount of interest in the copper Kubus 4. We are particularly proud of the collection because it is original and faithful to the first blackened copper candleholders of the 1960s. We have therefore opted not to use a lacquer seal on the candleholders, which is quite common in today’s copper products, and this will give each candleholder a unique look as they develop their own individual patina,” says Nadia Lassen, great-granddaughter of Mogens Lassen and part-owner of by Lassen.
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.
