H.C. Andersen Fairytales Mobile

Here we have a Scandinavian celebration of Hans Christian Andersen from Flensted mobiles.  As well as telling tales and fables, Hans Christian Andersen also made paper cutouts, for adults and children alike. It is said that he always carried a large pair of scissors, 24 cm long, when he went to dinner parties. In the middle of a conversation, he would produce the scissors, fold a piece of paper and move it deftly through the scissors’ jaws.

Hans Christian Andersen created around 1500 paper cut outs.

A Flensted mobile is not only designed in Denmark, it is also handmade in Denmark, assembled by 60 homeworkers spread over Funen – the island of Hans Christian Andersen.  It all started in 1954, when Christian and Grethe Flensted saw that they could not keep up with the demands for their first mobile, the FM-001 Danish Lucky Storks.  Christian went next door and asked his neighbour if she could help them assemble some mobiles and she became their first home-worker.  This method of production saves more than 15 tons of fuel every year.
