DIY Kubus Candlestick – Easy step by step approach

Candlesticks, Decor

For this DIY project I got inspired by the Danish architect Mogens Lassen. He was a pioneer of Danish Functionalism and was influenced by the German design school Bauhaus. I love the clarity and simplicity of his designs. Especially his Kubus 4 candlestick is outstanding.
