Flensted Mobiles cover all facets of life, for even in an apparently completely still room the mobiles catch the slightest current of air. Just as being engrossed in music is relaxing, watching the slow motion of a mobile is a remedy against stress.
There is a Flensted Mobile for every festive occasion, and there are Flensted Mobiles for all settings, domestic or otherwise.
Flensted Jonah And The Whale Mobile
Cried Jonah (a harpooner) when swallowed by a whale:
'Throw me up, let me out
of this gloomy saloon.
I promise, dear whale,
I'll break my harpoon.'
The story of Jonah and the whale is celebrated with this colorful Flensted
mobile. Children will fall in love with the interacting movements of these
whales, making it the perfect addition to any nursery or child's room.
Dimensions: 15 x 15"
Design: Christian Flensted
Mobiles are a traditional craft in Denmark, but the modern mobile - as a decoration for
the home - 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.
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. All
Flensted mobiles are hand-made in Denmark, and offer high quality at a moderate price.
Flensted Mobiles are modern yet timeless, often abstract, brightly coloured and
unaffected by fashion, qualities which enable them to hang and give inspiration for many years.
