In co-operation with the Bauhaus Museum Flensted Mobiles have created this new mobile.
Primary shapes and colors are present: circle, square and triangle – the Bauhaus code. According to Kandinsky, the circle expressed the highest tension and elasticity, a characteristic which he linked with blue, which emits the most intense level of cold. The square, like red, radiates complete tranquility and has the effect of a cool warmth. The triangle instead represents a tranquil aspiration from the terrestrial to the heavenly. Like yellow, it emanates a powerful force and the greatest warmth. These principles have been used by Ole Flensted in designing this mobile.
The suspended lightness of a mobile is particularly appropriate for appreciating the psychological effects of shapes and colors. By juxtaposing the three components in different combinations, the Bauhaus enthusiast and the mobile collector can experience a variety of effect and themselves take part in Kandinsky’s research on the phenomenon of colour! Kandinsky made a research among his students in 1923 they were to match the primary shapes to primary colors and they produced the same results.
