Mobiles

Brass Mobiles

Intricate brass pieces on these mobiles turn and shift with slight changes in the air, catching light and casting shadows. The delicate nature is fine and precious, and the thin, slow moving, branch-like arms will add a dynamic element to your space. Think of it as a special finishing touch to a room, much like a refined piece of jewelry you add to complete an outfit.

Two-Propeller Mobile

Do you need an expensive, tabletop mobile? No, you don’t, unless you’ve got stacks of money lying around. However, you might want a “poetic work of wood, piano wire, and concrete” by Fran├žois Azambourg, as it’s a quiet piece of kinetic sculpture that’s sure to calm your mind. If you’re even a tiny bit interested, I can recommend watching the L’ATELIER d’exercices’ video, as it shows how each mobile is made.

Spektral Mobile

As we anxiously await spring, let’s preemptively add color to the dreariest room in the house with a colorful Spektral Mobile. Yes, it is very colorful and would be quite the brave decision for those of us prone to choosing grays, blacks, and browns when it comes to furnishings and accessories, but it would be nice to see a little rainbow color moving around in the breeze, wouldn’t it?

Themis Prism Mobile

Yet another Themis mobile? Yes, indeed, and this one has five distinct palette colors: salmon, beige, green, balck and gold. If you’re not familiar with the others, the Themis Mono Mobile is one dodecahedron with warm and cool colors, the Themis Mobile has five faceted ornaments, and the Themis Trio Mobile has, you guessed it, three polyhedra in a palette of neon and neutral colors.

Themis Mono Mobile

Fun! Check out this new mobile designed by Clara Von Zweikbergk. It’s a twelve-sided geometric shape (otherwise known as a dodecahedron, correct?) that has both warm and cool colors, all carefully chosen, of course, for the best contrast and visual appeal. At 12″x12″, it can hang by itself or in clusters.

Themis Mobile from Artecnica

Mobiles aren’t just relegated for above a baby’s crib, you know. They’re a great way to add movement and energy to a dull corner/space, and this mobile by Clara von Zweigbergk has enough color to do that job in spades.

Fuyuh Bamboo Laminated Ceiling Mobile

When decorating a room, there are so many opportunites to hang something from the ceiling, which helps bring height to a space. I always love finding great candle globes that hang, or beautiful lamp pendants. Sometimes, though, you need something that is just decoration, something so beautiful it doesn’t need an alternative use; simply something that looks good and will fill a void. Artist’s mobiles are usually the answer, and boy am I fawning over this one.

“Fuyuh was designed by Riki Watanabe in 1975. It is a classic Japanese design crafted by hand in a small Japanese workshop. The quality and details of the laminated bamboo are unsurpassed. Fuyuh is a small work of art, suspended in space.”
