Mobiles are a traditional craft in Denmark, but the modern mobile was created by Christian Flensted and his wife, Grethe. Their first design, the Stork mobile, met great success and now flies all over the world! Today, their son Ole Flensted and his wife Aase continue the tradition, with ideas for new and original mobiles issuing regularly from their "Department of Space Research". The first mobile designed by Ole Flensted in 1970 and in 1972 Ole Flensted designed one of the most beloved Flensted Mobiles: the "Elephant Party". Though still popular and one of their bestsellers, they are proud to present this 2009 version, which has been designed by using only circles and sections of circles.Sir Terry Frost England (1915 - )
