Himmeli 1 - Hanging Sculpture
These beautiful, geometric structures are called Himmeli (heh-muh-lee). Himmeli 1 is a triangular prism (3 sides) made from metal made by Elsje Designs.
Originating from the Swedish word for sky or heaven, himmel, the Himmeli are a traditional Finnish ornament, a mobile decoration that is traditionally made out of straw, or reeds in Finland. Traditionally they are suspended above the dinner table. It is thought that the larger the Himmeli, the larger the rye crop will be in the coming year!
These intricate geometric mobiles invites unexpected beauty and movement into a room or patio. Use the mobile to add a distinct modern flair to your wedding or event decor, as a special feature over the festive season, or to brighten up and individualize any living space. An air plant will add life to your himmeli.
