This hanging mobile is constructed from a satin finished black rigid straw. It is a customized blend of raw materials [non-metal] which gives it the strength and lightweight properties like that of aluminum.
A modern reinvention inspired by a Finnish tradition - this geometric hanging mobile is called a Himmeli, from the Swedish word 'himmel' meaning sky or heaven. They were created to celebrate the beginning of Winter Solstice and serve a means of good fortune for the future. The diamond grid shape is a more classic design which would have been created in earlier times.
The mobile will slowly turn with the slightest of breeze, movement which is also seen as good luck. The visual perspective constantly changes for you at a each little twist playing off its angular lines.
