Overview

Design by Ole Flensted with co-operation from the Guggenheim Museum NY, 2011.
By Flensted Mobile.

Contrasting Frank Lloyd Wright's 1959 spiral with the rectangular shapes of its 1992 annex and the surrounding skyscrapers, the Guggenheim Building, New York Mobile is spectacular in its simplicity. Not only does this mobile explore architecture but, as with all Flensted Mobiles, it allows for shapes to move and change. Movement allows light, seen through the tens of tiny windows in each of the buildings, to change in a similar way to the building itself, which ingeniously used its circular structure to allow sunlight to filter through and reflect light naturally.

From his home in Denmark, mobile artist Ole Flensted worked to create his interpretation of the Guggenheim and the New York skyline. He sees the Guggenheim as "a spiraling pearl nestled amongst the skyscraper-high buildings".

Flensted Mobiles created its first moving mobile over 50 years ago and the company has been expanding its assortment of playfully engaging and dynamic designs ever since. These modern moving mobiles are designed so that the elements are in constant motion while the entire mobile maintains a harmonic balance.

Notes:

Supplied with stainless steel suspension wire.

Ole Flensted

Designer: Ole Flensted

Ole Flensted, son of Christian Flensted, carries on the Danish tradition and family business of mobile craftsmanship. Ole is a designer of modern moving mobiles, a type of mobile pioneered by Christian when he began Flensted Mobiles in 1953. This modern generation of mobiles are so designed that the elements are in constant motion while the entire mobile maintains a harmonic balance. Today, Ole and his wife Aase continue the family tradition with new and original mobile designs and live by the philosophy that creating mobiles is not just a job, but their lives.

Flensted Mobiles: It's All in the Family

Flensted Mobiles gave birth to its first design, the Stork Mobile, in Denmark in 1953 when Christian Flensted and his wife Grethe celebrated the birth of their first daughter. Since then, the Stork Mobile, and its successors, have flown all around the world.

As the fledgling family business grew, it relocated to "The Stork's Nest" in Tommerup and eventually to the FLENSTED MOBILE CENTRE in Brenderup, nearly 15 years later, where it remains today. Christian's son, Ole Flensted, and his wife Aase now continue the family tradition. Original ideas and new mobile designs are issued regularly from their "Department of Space Resarch".

Mobiles are a traditional craft in Denmark, but the modern mobile - as a decoration for the home - was pioneered by the Flensted family. All Flensted Mobiles are designed so that the elements are in constant motion while the entire mobile maintains a harmonic balance. The Flensted family has always claimed that "creating mobiles is not just our job, it is our life".
