Reflecting the architectural bent of his forbearer's heritage pieces, Søren Lassen's indoor-outdoor candleholder shares the lineup's similarly clean lines and spare structure. Based on the timeless combination of a squared metal frame and cylinder-shaped glass candleholder, Light'in Lantern accommodates tea lights as well as pillar candles. Both decorative and functional, it brings a soul-warming glow, used with or without the lid.

Renowned Danish brother architects Mogens and Flemming Lassen created their works separately but share an iconic design legacy that was rekindled in 2008 with the founding of By Lassen. Headed by Søren Lassen—the grandson of Mogens—the Danish family business focuses on relaunching the iconic furnishings created by Mogens (1901-1987) and Flemming (1902-1984) that in their lifetime were only suggested in sketches or alternatively produced as singular pieces or prototypes, several for the yearly Cabinetmakers Guild Exhibition in Copenhagen, and subsequently consigned to the architects’ own homes and later commanding stratospheric prices at auction.
Søren Lassen is also a notable designer in his own right, inaugurating his Kubus series for the company’s 10th anniversary in 2018. He has also introduced pieces from other young talent that reflects the functionalist style of his forebears with clean lines and a geometric design language. Mogen’s minimalist but voluptuous seating proportions live on in pieces like the Tired Man armchair and Wilhelm sofa while Flemming, inspired by an early encounter with Le Corbusier in Paris, took a more angular route with output like his aptly named Frame storage range. “It is By Lassen’s vision to share the Lassen brothers’ legacy with the coming generations,” says the founder, “as beacons of the Danish design tradition that has inspired so many design talents.”
