Flowing Rhythm

My family heritage comes from an island off the coast of Denmark called Funan, also the home of Hans Christian Andersen. To designers this medium sized island is most notably where the contemporary mobile began.

Mobiles originated in Denmark as a traditional craft. In 1954 they were reinterpreted and shown in a modern light by the “Uromager”, otherwise known as Christian Flensted. His nickname translates into something like “maker of things mischievous and always on the move”. Those wacky Danes (remember these are my people).

This abstract home decoration is an inspiration for adults and children alike. Gift givers seeking a unique and fun item that brings a new feel to any space and a smile to any face, will be thrilled to see the choices offered at Seattle boutique store, Eurostyle Your Life. They have a pretty decent number of Flensted mobiles.

Shown is “Flowing Rhythm”, 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 skillful hands. They are packed so that they are ready to hang.  They also ship incredibly well.

Obama ’08: Logo Runner-Ups

Interesting look into the development of the Obama ’08 logo. Sol Sender led the creative team with designers Andy Keene and Amanda Gentry. Sender is now working as a strategist at VSA Partners here in Chicago, where this video was filmed. A detailed walk-through of the design process can also be seen over at LogoDesignLove.

MacBook EnvelopeMacBook Envelope Detail

How many people do you know with laptops now? How many take care of them? Why not help them along with this unisex, modern, well-crafted and low profile laptop case. While you’re at it pick one of for yourself because the price is right AND so is the style. It is also a green product.

Designed by a Brooklyn up and comer, Fern Fiddle Head (also a food), this MacBook “envelope” is a nice alternative to the other foam-like designs out there. It is available on Etsy (if you do not know what Etsy is yet then please follow the link and check it out as it is pretty much one of the coolest and most innovative communities to happen in this decade).
