Tango (black) - Flensted Mobiles
The mobile's graphic form and its black colour makes it ideal for any large room.
Balance is the essence of this mobile, just like a precarious tango. Is there anything more sensual than a couple moving over a dancefloor in a tango?
Once upon a time...
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. Christian became known as the "Uromager", a name impossible to translate in English which means a maker of things mischievous and always on the move. 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".
Made in Denmark.
