About the Designers
Flensted Mobiles are a traditional handicraft in Denmark. The first modern designer mobile was made there in 1954. It was then that Christian and Grethe Flensted designed the Stork mobile to celebrate the baptism of their daughter. Demand for the Stork mobile surpassed all expectations, and it still ships worldwide over 50 years later. Today Flensted Mobiles is based on the Danish island of Funen, the birthplace of Hans Christian Anderson, where it creates its very own design fairy tales from the old village school in Brenderup. Based on his creations, Christian was dubbed the "Uromager", which roughly translated means, "maker of things mischievous and always on the move". Today, their son Ole and his wife Aase continue the tradition.
Mobiles are a traditional craft in Denmark, but the modern mobile was created by Christian Flensted and his wife, Grethe. Their first design, the Stork mobile, met great success and now flies all over the world! Today, their son Ole Flensted and his wife Aase continue the tradition, with ideas for new and original mobiles issuing regularly from their "Department of Space Research". The first mobile designed by Ole Flensted in 1970 and in 1972 Ole Flensted designed one of the most beloved Flensted Mobiles: the "Elephant Party". Though still popular and one of their bestsellers, they are proud to present this 2009 version, which has been designed by using only circles and sections of circles.
