Flensted Mobile: Counterpoint

Mobiles are a traditional craft in Denmark, but the modern mobile - as a decoration for the home - was created in 1953 by Christian Flensted and his wife Grethe to celebrate the birth of their first daughter. Their first design, the stork mobile, was a great success, and now flies all over the world.  Flensted Mobiles are designed that the elements are in constant motion while the entire mobile maintains a harmonic balance.

As a musical term, “Counterpoint” is defined as “the combination of two or more independent melodies into a single harmonic texture in which each retains its linear character” much like our family cooperation.
