Materials : wood, stainless steel
Design: Ole Flensted
In 1970 Ole Flensted designed his first mobile, the "Futura Black", which is now available in wood!
The mobile preserves it's beautiful graphic expression. Bars of light and heavy elements in dynamic tension suggest six planets with their moons - or perhaps different levels of the light and the heavy sides of the personality?
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.
