In 1853 Hans Christian Andersen made a little story about hot air balloons, inspired by the Frenchman Henri Giffard who flew 25 km from the hippodrome in Paris to Trappes.

Less-known for his paper-cutting than his story-telling, Andersen left over a thousand silhouette cuttings, including the balloon that inspired this mobile.

Flensted Mobile began in 1953 with a single creation, made in honor of a baby's christening, and grew into a family legacy.  Now run by the next generation, the family has retained their creative capacity to create elegant, classic designs – and unique, extraordinary mobiles that can both set their surroundings in motion and create a balance of mind. Each mobile is carefully assembled, and balanced by the skillful staff of homeworkers scattered around the beautiful island of Funen, Denmark.
