Flensted Mobiles

Mobiles are a traditional craft in Denmark, but the modern mobile – as a decoration for the home – was created in 1954 by Christian Flensted and his wife Grethe. 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 things mischievous and always on the move”.

Today, their son Ole and his wife Aase continue the tradition, with ideas for new and original mobiles issuing regularly from their “Department of Space Research”.
