To celebrate the 100 years of the revolutionary Niels Bohr Atom Model, we have, in cooperation with the Niels Bohr Institute of Copenhagen, created this beautiful mobile, which will surely decorate any home. In 1913 Niels Bohr developed his revolutionary model of the atom, from which new information technologies continue to arise – from the transistor radio to quantum computers.

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.
