About Flensted:
On the island of Funen in Denmark, where Hans Christian Andersen was born, you can find a present-day fairy tale Flensted Mobiles, a family business that designs and makes mobiles at Frederiksminde, the old village school at Brenderup. 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 directly translate into English, but 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".

Flensted Mobiles are designed and handmade in Denmark. They are created so that the elements are in constant motion while the entire mobile maintains a harmonic balance. Each mobile is carefully assembled, and balanced by skillful hands. They are packed so that they are ready to hang.
