Mogens Lassen

Designer

Architect Mogens Lassen (1901-1987) was among the pioneers of Danish Functionalism, and already in the 1930s, he introduced the white style which spread like a wildfire through Europe. The houses designed by Mogens Lassen became masterpieces in Danish architecture and although clearly inspired by Le Corbusier, they have the personality, character and soul which characterise great architecture. Mogens Lassen's Kubus candlestick from 1962 was designed with almost mathematical precision as a distinct, cube-shaped frame fitted with candle holders. Until the 1980s, only Mogens Lassen's own family and friends knew of the Kubus candlestick, but today the square candlestick exists thanks to Mogens Lassen's grandson Søren Lassen who, in collaboration with Paustian, has taken up the torch from his grandfather and is in charge of production.
