Mobiles are a traditional craft in Denmark, but the modern mobile was created in 1954 by Christian Flensted and his wife Grethe. Christian Flensted became known as the "Uromager", a name impossible to translate into 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". 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. They are packed so that they are ready to hang.

This adorable elephant mobile from Ole Flensted, is cleverly made, the trio of elephants are designed using only circle cut-outs. It?s sweet, modern style is spectacularly simple and any gentle Movement allows this 3-dimensional mobile to be viewed from lovingly from below.
