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 around the world.
Christian Flensted became known as the "Uromager", a name impossible to translate into English, referring to 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, they regularly present designs from their “Department of Space Research”. Flensted Mobiles are created in such a way 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 be hung.
