The Swallow mobile is from the Danish family-owned company, Flensted Mobiles, which has been manufacturing handmade mobiles since 1954. The mobile consists of five elegant and acrobatic swallows that are in endless motion and in eternal harmonic balance. Can only be purchased online.
The idea for Flensted Mobiles started with a stork – in the form of a small, innocent mobile consisting of straw and three small paper storks, which the company's founder, Christian Flensted, made for his daughter Mette's christening in 1953. In 1982, the depeche was passed on to his son Ole Flensted, and to this day they manufacture handmade mobiles with great respect for the company's fundamental values and creative angles on the world.
The originator of mobiles in modern times in art was the American artist Alexander Calder (1898 – 1976). Three of Calder's sculptures are displayed on the terrace in front of Louisiana's café.
