Flensted Viking 5 Mobile
The Viking 5 Mobile moves gracefully with its five Viking ships, with full sails set for the foreign shores. From about the year 800 until 1050, the Vikings sailed far and wide in ships like these. Designed by Christian Flensted, the ships in the mobile are carved from teak. 11 x 26”
What makes a mobile so enchanting? According to the Flensted family, who operate Flensted Mobiles out of Denmark, it is the balance between rest and restlessness. Flensted creates elegant designs that encourage both motion and balance of mind. The company began when Christian Flensted crafted a stork mobile for his daughter’s christening. One year later, a business began and the stork design remains in production today. Flensted Mobiles has over 250 designs and is run by Ole and Aase Flensted on the island Funen, in Denmark.
