In cooperation with the Bauhaus Museum, Ole Flensted designed a mobile with his company Flensted Mobiles. It can rightfully be called an homage to the Bauhaus era and Wassily Kandinsky’s colour theory.
Primary shapes and colours dominate the overall image: circle, square and triangle in red, blue and yellow. According to Wassily Kandinsky (1866-1944), certain colours and shapes can be associated. Blue conveys coldness, infinity and tranquility and is therefore associated with circles, which – according to Kandinsky – have the greatest force and elasticity. The warm colour red is assigned a square, which inspires calmness and comfort.
Triangles are assigned yellow, as they also emit a certain warmth, but may appear eccentric and even aggressive. With Kandinsky’s colour theory in mind, Ole Flensted created a floating light piece in the Bauhaus Mobile. Furthermore, it pays attention to the psychological effects of colours and shapes. Because of the contrast of the different shapes and colours, Bauhaus enthusiasts and mobile collectors can admire the effects and experience Kandinsky’s studies of the phenomenon of colours from a completely new perspective.
