Life & Thread mobile by Ole Flensted for Flensted Mobile.
Mobiles are a traditional craft in Denmark, but the modern mobile was created in 1954 by Christian Flensted and his wife Grethe. Their first design, the Stork mobile, was a great success, and now flies all over the world.
Today, their son Ole and his wife Aase continue the tradition, with ideas for new and original mobiles issuing regularly from their "Department of Space Research".
Flensted Mobiles are created so that the elements are in constant motion while the entire mobile maintains a harmonic balance. Each mobile is carefully assembled, and balanced by skilful hands.
The Life & Thread mobile features a globe between four leaves in bold colours, signifying a world between day and night, heaven and earth. The large mobile is made from Serigraphical foil and comes fully assembled and ready to be hung.
Three additional leaves in grey, light grey and white are provided to offer a monochrome version of the mobile.
