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.

Rael Yaniv is an architect based in Israel. Yaniv graduated from the Technion - Israel Institute of Technology. He lives in the Galilee of Israel with his wife and their two daughters. Over the years Yaniv has developed his unique style, which combines the traditional Japanese art of Kirigami with the study of complex morphology. “My inspiration is nature in all its beauty; I find great joy in discovering the ingenious architecture of nature”.
