Sometimes you have to see a design piece in situ to appreciate it; case in point, the Kubus candelholder, which I didn't fully understand until I spotted it in this Danish flat.

Above: Designed by Danish architect Mogens Lassen in 1962, the lacquered steel Kubus Candleholder is a reaction against traditional, ornate candlesticks. The Medium Kubus Candleholder is currently on sale for $82.50 (down from $165) and the Kubus Candleholder Large is on sale for $142.50 (down from $285) at Design Within Reach.
