Solar System Ellipse Mobile
Description

Bring the elegance of the solar system to your space with this orbit-inspired mobile. Updated by German designer Johannes Lindner from Christian Flensted’s 1955 design, the array of anodized aluminum ellipses revolves around a beechwood “sun” at the center, all floating on transparent nylon filament. Hang it in a playroom or family room and enjoy the ever-changing celestial shadows it casts on walls, ceilings, and floors, especially with the aid of a soft light source like a candle.

Handmade in Denmark, Flensted mobiles are literally a cottage industry: They’re made by 60 homeworkers spread over Funen—the island of Hans Christian Andersen. This method of production saves more than 15 tons of fuel every year and greatly reduces CO2 emissions by eliminating workers’ commute to a factory.
