MO­BILES All grown-up, these pen­dants are the new must-have

These dec­o­ra­tions are all grown-up and re­designed for mod­ern in­te­ri­ors

Tra­di­tion­ally seen float­ing above a new­born’s cot, dec­o­ra­tive mo­biles have re­cently been mak­ing their way out of the play­room and into the rest of the home. A clear pro­gres­sion of the trend for min­i­mal, sculp­tural light­ing, mod­ern mo­biles are drift­ing pieces of art that ex­ist sim­ply to please the eye. Dan­ish brand Flen­sted (flen­sted-mo­biles.com) is no­table in the field – while its mo­biles were aimed at chil­dren when the com­pany started mak­ing them 65 years ago, its re­cent de­signs are ab­stract, Alexan­der Calderesque shapes, suit­able for all ages. Ladies & Gentle­men Stu­dio (above, ‘Half Lune’, from £2,327; ladiesand­gentle­men­stu­dio.com) makes mo­biles that are in­flu­enced by the an­gles and shapes of 1900s con­struc­tivism, while artist and de­signer Daniel Reynolds (daniel­reynoldsstu­dio.com) uses stoneware, porce­lain and metal shapes to bal­ance his hang­ing works, which gen­tly sway through­out the day, adding life to their sur­rounds. We agree with jew­ellery maker Cor­rie Wil­liamson (cor­riewil­liamson.co.uk) who de­scribes her unique mo­biles, de­signed as su­per­sized ver­sions of her neck­laces and ear­rings, as the new ‘jew­ellery for the home’.
