By Lassen Kubus Bowl Large
The Kubus Bowl is based on original sketches by Mogens Lassen, and features elements evocative of the Bauhaus school, one of Mogens Lassen’s primary inspirations. The German design school believed that good design should be accessible to the people, and this concept appealed to architect Mogens Lassen.
The Kubus Bowl is produced in Denmark with a focus on high quality and solid craftsmanship, and the bowl is a natural extension of the iconic Kubus candleholder, designed by Mogens Lassen in 1962. The Kubus Bowl is suitable for home decoration year-round and can contain everything from blossoms to herbs, fruits, vegetables or your favorite candy.

- Color Description
Having trained as a bricklayer in 1919-23, Mogens Lassen was admitted to the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts' School of Architecture, but also trained at a number of drawing offices with, among others, Danish architect Tyge Hvass in 1925-34. A trip to Paris in 1927-28 sparked Lassen's interest in Le Corbusier's ideas about the home as a tool for a freer lifestyle. Introducing mezzanine floors in high-ceilinged rooms, for example, offered one way to free the home from the constraints of habitual thinking. Applying a similar, experimental approach, Lassen designed homes where both function as well as the daylight flooding in through the windows shaped the rooms, and where outdoor spaces were just as carefully designed as the interiors.
