A large number of decoration items, to hang to a ceiling lamp, next to a door or a window to colour and move in space. Made in Denmark. Mobiles are a traditional craft in Denmark, but the modern mobile - as a decoration for the home - was created in 1953 by Christian Flensted and his wife Grethe to celebrate the birth of their first daughter. Their first design, the Stork mobile, was a great success, and now flies all over the world.
Flensted Mobiles are so designed that the elements are in constant motion while the entire mobile maintains a harmonic balance. Like an aquarium, a mobile catches and holds the eye, and to watch its calm subdued movements brings serenity of mind.
This new mobile, developed in co-operation with the Guggenheim Museum NY, is spectacular in its simplicity, contrasting Frank Lloyd Wright's 1959 spiral with the rectangular shapes of its 1992 annexe and the surrounding skyscrapers.
