Timeless mobile in Bauhaus style
In collaboration with the Bauhaus Ole Flensted and his company Flensted Mobiles designed a mobile that can be seen as a homage to the Bauhaus era and the colour theory of Wassily Kandinsky.
Primary shapes and colours dominate the overall picture: circle, square and triangle in red, blue and yellow. According to Wassily Kandinsky (1866-1944), certain colours are associated with certain shapes. The colour blue conveys coldness, infinity and tranquillity and is thus associated with the circle, to which Kandinsky attributed the highest resilience and elasticity. He assigns the warm colour red to the square, which thus radiates calm and comfort. He assigns the color yellow to the triangle, since this also radiates a certain warmth, but just like the triangle, it can appear eccentric or even aggressive.
With Kandinsky's colour theory in mind, Ole Flensted created a piece of floating lightness with the Bauhaus Mobile a piece of floating lightness that also appreciates the psychological effects of colours and shapes. Through the juxtaposition of the different shapes and colours, the Bauhaus By juxtaposing the different shapes and colours, mobile enthusiasts and collectors can enjoy the effects and experience Kandinsky's studies of the phenomenon of colour for themselves in a new way.
