Flight of Fancy
From DaVinci to the Wright brothers, designers have long been inspired by the organic grace of birds in flight. Israeli artist Rael Yaniv draws on the same inspiration to create a modern mobile made from polished stainless steel. Each of its graceful birds is constructed from a single piece of metal through the techniques of kirigami—the Japanese art of cut and folded paper. The feather-like perforations in the birds' wings keep the composition light and airy, and cast intriguing shadows as they float through the air. This kinetic work of art makes a thoughtful gift for any bird lover. The tarnish-free materials are suitable for indoor or outdoor display. Made in Israel.
