Kertastjaki KUBUS 8 RAW m/bakka

SKU: LAS-10808

Reflecting his keen sense of modern Functionalism, Mogens Lassen designed the iconic Kubus 8 candleholder in 1962. A design object that was initially only shared with family, good friends and fellow architects. In 2022, we are celebrating the 60th anniversary of the original Kubus 8 by launching a limited edition called the Kubus 8 RAW. This is an identical version of the original Kubus 8 candleholder Mogens Lassen had made and kept on his desk, and which can be seen in photos of his studio from 1962. Just as the original, the new version is completely raw and untreated and will naturally develop a patina over time, thus becoming entirely one-of-a-kind in expression depending on the level of moisture it is exposed to. Mogens Lassen was interested in experimenting with new shapes and functions. He was a perfectionist, and he spent much of his time working out the sizes, shapes and dimensions of objects so they became as perfect as possible from his perspective. He aimed to challenge the material and create harmony for the eye. Initially, he had only devised the frame and had no idea what purpose to give it. “If you can’t think of anything else, you can always use it as a candleholder.” He then attached cylinders for candles on this purest of forms, and today the Kubus has earned its status as an international design icon, one that you never tire of looking at. The stringent dimensions of the candleholder are designed to create a relationship between all the Kubus candleholders, bowls and vases in the collection. This way, it always represents visual harmony no matter which versions you place together. KUBUS 8 RAW IS PURE CRAFTSMANSHIP Cutting, welding, soldering, sanding and polishing. All in a symbiosis between the performing hands and traditional and ancient welding tools. Each of the 16 processes on the production line is executed by hand and everything is checked and inspected at numerous points along the way. The sanding of the welded joints is rendered with an old-fashioned hand file, and it takes an average of 45 minutes of efficient manual work to craft a Kubus 8 from start to finish.
