The CityPASS admission to the CN Tower, one of Toronto’s architectural attractions, is a travel highlight.

The admission ticket to CN Tower also includes a 3-D film and a motion-theater ride.
Another historic Toronto attraction is Casa Loma, the castle-inspired mansion which was built by financier Sir Henry Pellatt between 1911 and 1914. In many Hollywood movie shoots, this celebrated mansion has served as a location for films such as X-Men and Chicago.

Scandinavian design classics continue to be admired for their elegance and simplicity.
Take the classic design The Kubus 4 candleholder (above) designed in 1962 by Modernist Danish architects, designers and brothers Mogens and Flemming Lassen.
Fifty years later, The Kubus Bowl (below) was produced, as an extension of the Kubus candleholder. The bowl’s design was based on discovered original sketches from Mogens Lassen who was inspired by the Bauhaus school.

“Intended as a rebellion against the ornate elaborate home, their candleholder was designed with almost mathematical precision, a sharp lacquered steel cubical frame with cylindrical candleholders on top,” says Story North, which specializes in home accessories and furiture from Scandinavia.
Today, the Lassen family owns the rights to the designs by the late Lassen brothers. The family business has carried on the legacy and production of their designs “as they believe that good design lives on through new generations.”
The Kubus 4 Candleholder and Kubus Bowl are both available in black or white at Story North.
