    Christian FlenstedMobiles 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.

    Christian Flensted became known as the "Uromager", a name impossible to translate into English, which means a "maker of mischievous things that are always on the move."

    In 1956 Christian Flensted gave up his job to devote his entire effort to the fledgling mobiles business, then based in Aalborg, Jutland. However, this led to the business moving back to its home island of Funen and founding "The Stork's Nest" in Tommerup. They stayed here for about 15 years.

    By 1971, production had grown so much that new premises were needed, and they moved to the old school "Frederiksminde" near Brenderup, Funen, which is still the FLENSTED MOBILE CENTRE.

Today, Christian and Grethe´s son, Ole and his wife Aase continue the family tradition, with ideas for new and original mobiles issuing regularly from their "Department of Space Research". Flensted Mobiles are so designed that the elements are in constant motion while the entire mobile maintains a harmonic balance.
