Flensted Mobile Metamorphosis
By moving the wires, you can change the shape of this aerial sculpture, which will then reveal fascinating forms and create new shadows as it slowly revolves.
Metamorphosis (latin) means change. The mobile was inspired by Ovid’s main work: “Metamorphoses”, an epic of fifteen songs, where the whole world’s history is retold with a focus on the mythological substance, and especially the myths that involve some kind of transformation
Designed by Ole Flensted in 1998
Stainless steel & wood
40 x 40cm
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.
