Think of summer and nature - butterflies fluttering above flowers, searching for nectar. Watch them fly in the wind. The gliding, dreamlike movements makes you happy, and as the light shines through the overlapping, transparent wings, you notice a fascinating change of colours. This romantic mobile is suitable for a sun porch as well as a girl's room. The mobile is very suitable to be seen from below.

Mobiles are a traditional craft in Denmark, but the modern mobile - as a decoration for the home - was created in 1953 by Christian Flensted and his wife Grethe to celebrate the birth of their first daughter. Their 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 mischievous things that are always on the move". Flensted Mobiles are designed that the elements are in constant motion while the entire mobile maintains a harmonic balance.
