Ole and Mie Lerche’s beautiful angels have now taken a new form. The angels now dance around each other, they are pre-assembled in the box, and we have changed the material on this particular design to serigraphical foil, to make it withstand being unpacked for many Christmases to come.

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. 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". Flensted Mobiles are designed that the elements are in constant motion while the entire mobile maintains a harmonic balance.
