Our solar system – as an artistic mobile.

Displaying the beauty of the universe in a marvellous manner. Designed by the famous Danish mobile-making family Flensted.

This reinterpretation is based on the legendary mobile classic invented by Dane Christian Flensted in 1956. Unlike the original circular model (there are hardly any exact circular orbits in space), this mobile consists of elliptical rings that rotate concentrically around the central sphere, creating an abstract representation of the structure, interaction and the fascination for our galaxy.
The various flowing movements possess a mystical charm.
Five 7mm narrow, precision laser-cut ellipses made of black anodised aluminium represent the planetary orbits. Arranged concentrically in graduating sizes, they revolve around the sun in the middle. Made of solid beech wood and measuring 2.8cm (1.1"), the sun forms the centre as a fixed star. The individual ellipses reposition again and again by rotating. This way, complex science is demonstrated in a playful manner that is also interesting and educational for children.
Every light breeze creates a new look.
The sun and orbits are connected almost invisibly to the central suspension system, making the ellipses rotate independently of each other around the central axis. Rising warm air or a light breeze triggers a beautifully varied choreography.
Magically creates beautiful light and shadow effects on walls and ceiling.
You can hang the mobile in a corner of the room and train a spotlight on it in the dark. This creates mysterious shadows as if from distant planetary systems – exciting and relaxing at the same time.
Supreme quality and balance.
Precision laser-cutting gives the ellipses clean contours. Size 23cm (9.1") H. Movement radius: 53cm (21.0"). Weight approx. 80g (2.8 oz). Incl. 170cm (5.6ft) plastic suspension system. Design: Johannes Lindner/Flensted. Made in Denmark.

For more than 60 years, the Danish family business Flensted has been producing top-of-the-range mobiles.

Their work is renowned for its highest quality throughout the world. The family even works together with the Guggenheim Museum in New York and the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
