The Futura Mobile by Flensted Mobiles was one of the first products to join the Flensted Mobile assortment and was launched in 1970. This collecteble pice was designed by artist Christian Flensted who made his frst piece to celebrate the christening of his daughter. He cut three storks from paper and mounted them on two straws to create the well-loved Stork mobile. The Futura to this day, is appreciated by many. We love the distinction between light and heavy elements, perfectly balanced between six planets and their moons.
