The abstract form of Futura suggests six planets with their moons; the six bars create a dynamic tension between the light and heavy counterpoints.
Flensted mobiles are designed so the elements are in constant movement while the entire mobile maintains a harmonic balance. Handmade in Denmark, each mobile is the result of a creative process with many hours of inspirations, ideas and prototyping taking place before the story, shapes and colours are finalised.
Flensted Mobiles began in 1953 when Christian Flensted made his first mobile to celebrate the christening of his daughter and is now a family business through three generations. The mobiles are designed and made in Denmark, assembled by a dedicated team of homeworkers spread across Funen - the island of Hans Christian Andersen.
