About the Manufacturer

In 1954 Christian and Grethe Flensted created their first mobile, the Danish Luck Storks (FM-1 still in production today, over fifty years later), to celebrate the baptism of their daughter Mette. In 1956 Christian Flensted gave up his job to devote all his effort to the fledgling mobiles business, then based in Aalborg, Jutland. By 1971, production had grown so much that new premises were needed and the business moved back to the home island of Funen and founded “The Stork’s Nest” in Tommerup and stayed here for about 20 years and then moved to the old school building “Frederiksminde” near Brenderup, Funen, which is still the FLENSTED MOBILE CENTRE. Originally Flensted mobiles were sold in bookshops and craft centres. Today, they are sold predominantly through museum and gallery gift outlets, contemporary furniture and design stores and children’s shops, and enjoy an international success. In Denmark, the mobiles are sold in Illums Bolighus Airport, Tivoli and many museums (e.g. all the larger mobiles can be seen at Statens Museum for Kunst in Copenhagen. The company is part owner of ARTIUM, a Scandinavian Design shop located in central Copenhagen. Over the years Flensted mobiles have been shown in many prominent exhibitions across Europe: at Charlottenborg, Copenhagen; at the United Nations in Geneva; and at the Bern Ornaris Selection, a retrospective expo at the Filosofgangen in Odense. They were for sale during the Calder exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts in London and the Picasso/Braque/Miro/Kandinsky/ Calder exhibition at the Meisterwerke aus dem Guggenheim Musen in the Kunsthalle of Hamburg. Over the years the mobiles have featured in films, TV commercials and magazine advertisements. The most high-profile example was “Who is afraid of Virginia Wolf”, in which the mobile FM-5R Flowing Rhythm was shown in the bedroom of Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor. We have seen three of our mobiles on auction on one of Denmark’s leading internet auctions. The strange thing was that all three were still in production but the price of a second-hand mobile was almost four times higher than a new one! Ole, the founders son, and his wife Aase, officially took over the company in 1982. Christian Flensted passed away in December 1994, but his wife Grethe still lives in Odense. All Flensted mobiles are hand-made in Denmark, and offer high quality at a moderate price. Elements are assembled and packed by about 50 skilled home-workers and their families. Many of the original Flensted mobiles are still in production, but the contemporary designs are now the bestsellers. Ole Flensted is the chief designer, but for introducing new ideas often works in conjunction with artists. Ole is currently engaged in a series of large-scale mobiles. This project allows the design and supply of mobiles for special purposes: for use as one-off pieces for large spaces, or in large quantities for use as corporate gifts or as Christmas and New Year greetings. Many of our standard mobiles are well-suited as commercial presents and act as constant “visiting cards” for the sender.

    Cute but....

    from Baxley, GA

    I'm hoping that our baby will love this and then it will justify spending so much on thick paper animals suspended by fishing line.. I'm still not sure how exactly to hang it since it didn't come with anything like most mobile do to suspend above crib, or instructions. I went ahead and ordered another mobile just in case because I have a feeling this is not going to work out :(

    great movement

    from Webster, NY – Verified Buyer

    This mobile is so cool. It is a stiff cardboard, which I was a little wary of, but the mechanisms from which it hangs creates incredible bounce and movement. Can't wait - baby will love it! Plus the dark color will be easy for a newborn to track. Better than those cheap plasticky mobiles out there

    Great product, not cat friendly!

    from JAFFREY, NH – Verified Buyer

    It was a lovely product, but the second my cats saw it swinging they decided it needed to be taken down. Unfortunately, they were successful and the hedgehog family lives no more.

    Beautiful, sleek, and the baby loves it!

    from MA and NJ

    This mobile hangs above the crib in our little boy's nursery, but he's not sleeping there yet. It looks beautiful and has a very simple, sleek silhouette and a constant slight motion. We do bring the baby up to it and hold him right below it, and he loves to focus on it and follow the movement. In fact, this was one of the first things that he would focus on and track. It's just so much nicer than any of the usual mobiles and it seems to be a great value to boot!
