Futura is nothing less than the first mobile Ole Flensted designed, back in 1970. Since then it has turned out that the name Futura had something almost prophetic about it.

For Ole’s design debut marked the beginning of a future in Flensted Mobiles that was to see countless other mobiles added.

And Futura itself…?

It brought something modern and abstract into our universe of mobiles, yet at the same time had certain features that could rightly be called ‘classic Flensted’.

For example, the dynamic tension in the juxtaposition of the simple and the elegant. The light-as-a-feather and the heavy.

Is Futura six planets and their moons in constant motion? Or a symbol of the light and dark sides of the human mind?

About Flensted Mobiles: The Flensted Mobiles fairytale is actually based on two straws and three paper storks. For this was what Christian Flensted cut out and assembled in 1953 when the christening of his daughter, Mette, was going to be celebrated. The result was the stork mobile, which was only conceived of as being a fun, ingenious and personal gift, but ended up as the prelude to Flensted Mobiles. For when it comes to mobiles, rest and restlessness make a happy couple. In 1982 Grethe and Christian Flensted decided to pass the baton on to Ole. In connection with this change of generation at Flensted Mobiles, the running of the company was now taken over by Ole and his wife, Aase. They have continued to operate the mobiles company paying great respect to the original ideas.
