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.
