Adding playfulness into your interior

Welcome! Shop opened in april 2020
Utopia Mobiles is based in the Netherlands.

Before going to art school, I was already fascinated by the playfulness of the modernist artists around the 1920’s-1940’s who had this strong believe and desire to envision a better world.

Besides art and design, I just love nature and meditation. How it can create feelings of joy and get you into a special kind of state. More energised, yet light at heart.

It was later that I realised that kinetic art objects like mobiles are perfect objects to represent and transmit these feelings of effortless joy and playfulness! A balanced play of shape, color and movement in your home.

I create these mobiles mobiles in my studio with a pleasure for working with materials. And especially with joy in my heart, knowing that it will contribute to the soul of your interior.

People love their playfulness and how it inspires their imagination.
Even in their abstract manner, I like the way these mobiles have a narrative or could represent little funny creatures in a lush environment. Gently coming alive with a breeze. Function as a room divider. Hanging next to a sofa or in a hallway.

All mobiles are handmade with great care for detail.
Slowly… sanded, rounded, painted and assembled by hand. The shapes are made of wood. Poplar plywood, beech or Balsa wood. The hand bended iron rods of galvanised steel have a grey, blueish worn finish. Giving it an industrial touch. A kind of perfect imperfection. I make them in small badges. But each one is unique in it’s finish.

I use wood because it’s warm and Fen Shui in your space. Most mobiles have a subtle color palette which blend aesthetically in your room.


Don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions, comments, or ideas. I’ll love them!
