A Small Hot Air Balloon Mobile with three balloons designed by Danish designer, Christian Flensted, and inspired by the balloons of the 18th century. This colourful Flensted mobile is made with love from quality materials, and brings a unique and quirky design into your home while helping you to unwind at the same time!
The Mobile features three balloons - delicately constructed from wood and cardboard in a festive combination of yellow, red, blue, green and orange. Each balloon has a basket made from wood, and is packed flat but easily opens out to reveal a perfect miniature balloon which gracefully turns and twirls all day.
The small Hot Air Balloon Mobile is perfect as a ceiling or hanging mobile, and would make an ideal gift for a newborn or small child. A colourful addition to any nursery!
In 1953 Christian Flensted made his first mobile to celebrate the christening of his daughter. He cut out three storks, mounted them onto two straws, and his Stork Mobile was made. This was the start of his firm - Flensted - which was founded in 1954.
Based on the island of Funen in Denmark, Flensted Mobiles is a family business where members of the Flensted family design and make beautiful mobiles that cover all facets of life. The mobiles are created so that the elements are in constant motion while the entire mobile maintains a harmonic balance.
Each mobile is carefully assembled by skilful artisans in their own homes on the island and then collected twice a month by the company car. This tradition has been in place for more than 30 years - allowing employees to work from home and leave less carbon footprint on the planet. Not only are Flensted Mobiles beautiful but they are environmentally considered too which makes them even better!
