"Flowing Rhythm" Mobile by Christian Flensted

0.00

Created in 1955 by Christian Flensted in 1955, this fine "Flowing Rhythm" Flensted model #5R mobile is made of five fiber plates and a red ball drop.  The plates are red on one side and black on the reverse.  Rich in color and graceful in movement...it dances on the slightest of breezes - a form of hypnotic and relaxing kinetic art.  Very soothing to watch, much like waves of the ocean; the interplay of shape, colour, and movement is perfectly suited to any modern interior.  The piece is designed and handcrafted in Denmark.

The company's mission is to offer mobiles, "... made from a perfect combination of love, dedication and quality, bringing a unique design into your home - and helping you to unwind at the same time!"

The Flensted "Mobilized Philosophy" is:  "In the fast-paced world in which we live, we put a lot of energy into fulfilling our hopes and dreams.  In order to do so, we must gather strength and unwind, so that we can fully seize the moment.  The mobile simply creates inner peace with its graceful, almost therapeutic and calm movements.  It lets you unwind."  

"The mobile's life is hanging by a thread
But tells us how to get a peaceful mind.
The goal of life is not to be ahead.
It's rather time to feel how threads are twined"
~ Chr. Flensted 1973
