Mobiles are a traditional craft in Denmark, but the modern mobile – as a decoration for the home – was created in 1953 by Christian Flensted and his wife Grethe to celebrate the birth of their first daughter. Their first design, the stork mobile, was a great success, and now flies all over the world. Christian Flensted became known as the “Uromager”, a name impossible to translate into English, which means a “maker of mischievous things that are always on the move”. Flensted Mobiles are designed that the elements are in constant motion while the entire mobile maintains a harmonic balance.
A magic mobile. The 6 symbols of magic. Watch this trick move before your eyes. The cloth has just been lifted from the hat, and a rabbit jumps out. But what else is in the hat? And what else can be pulled out from under the red cloth? Will the magic wand turn you into a toad? And perhaps the magician has more cards up his sleeve?
