Designed by British sculptor Ivan Black, the Square Wave Kinetic Mobile is a stress-relieving design that’s inspired by the Fibonacci Sequence, a famous mathematical formula, as well as geometric formations that occur in nature. The Square Wave is composed of 21 connected metal rods which curve and mutate unexpectedly with the introduction of energy. You can manipulate it while holding it in your hands or spin it on the included base. The repetition of identical elements is precisely calibrated to create complex fluid structures. (The mobile can also be hung. Cord not included.) The Square Wave Kinetic Mobile is made in Italy at a factory that has a 30-year history of metal craftsmanship and measures 9.8l x 9.8"w. The included stand measures 18.5h x 2"diam. Another style, the Square Wave Kinetic Horizon Mobile, is available here.
