Description

Balloon mobile designed by Christian Flensted.

Colourful and festive balloon-mobile inspired by "Montgolfieres" of the 18th century and modern hot air balloons of today. A plate showing famous balloons, beginning with the first Montgolfiere from 1783 and ending with "Double Eagle II" from 1978 is enclosed.

Mobiles are a traditional craft in Denmark. Christian Flensted and his wife Grethe's first design, the Stork mobile, was a great success, and now flies all over the world. 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 skillful hands. They are packed so that they are ready to hang.

3 card balloons suspended from steel frame.

Dimensions:
38w x 45 cmh
