Science Fiction: The most beautiful mobile of the milky way?
A world of sun, moon and stars
At Flensted Mobiles we search both high and low for inspiration for our mobiles. We look inside ourselves, out into the world around us – and even out into outer space, where in 1955 Christian Flensted found inspiration for what has since become an absolute classic in our range – the mobile Science Fiction.
With its extremely simple form – with a ‘planet’ or ‘moon’ at the centre and a number of rings around it – Science Fiction symbolises something that most of us can recognise: a universe of sun, moon and stars in outer space.
To some people, Science Fiction is the simplest of its kind – perhaps even the most beautiful of the Milky Way, because it unites the central qualities of the Flensted universe: elegant elements in motion around each other.
On a creative journey into space
The hub of Science Fiction from Flensted Mobiles is the small moon at the centre, around which the rings of the planets turn. This causes a fascinating interaction between the materials – and between light and shade.
If you hang Science Fiction up in the right lighting conditions, it will cast fantastic shadows onto the wall and take you on the creative journey into space that Christian Flensted himself undertook in the mid 1950s.
Red planet and bright star
In the original, classic version of Science Fiction, the moon at the centre was always a red orb, surrounded by black planet rings. Flensted Mobiles has recently launched a new version, Science Fiction Nature, where the mobile moves around a light globe of wood. This offers you new possibilities when it comes to colours, tastes and interior design.
