Craveworthy: Frazier & Wing Mobiles

Craveworthy: Frazier & Wing Mobiles


Maybe it's the bright, primary colors, or maybe it's the mobile's ability to transport even the most jaded home design enthusiast back to childhood whimsy. Whatever the reason, I am absolutely smitten with Frazier and Wing's gorgeous mobiles.

These lovely home accessories are actually upcycle projects, since they are constructed from old magazines.

Intrigued?

Each mobile features hundreds of carefully selected magazine pages. This two-sided visual element is hand cut and strung with monofilament. Designer Heather Frazier then hangs four strands of the magazine elements from a thin plexiglass disc.

Frazier, who says she is inspired by the installation work of Gerda Steiner & Jorg Lenzlinger as well as artists Kiki Smith and Yoshitomo Nara, notes that each mobile is a handmade labor of love taking up to eight hours to construct, and lend a colorful and happy mood to modern interiors.

The value in this mobile is it's interplay of elements collected from many different sources (and especially since they are recycled, saving things from filling up our landfills/not purchased at an expensive craft store like scrapbook paper). Made from scrapbook paper they would really be predictably trite looking. Adults who can appreciate things like this in the colors and the spirit of fun will never grow old! To all of us, kudos to this artist! Keep up the good work.

Well, I love the look, and idea behind the "upcycle" as well as her inspirations (Yoshitomo Nara is awesome). I have done loads of things with old magazines myself; and there's great ideas out there such as a DOOR (!) made out of compacted old magazines! I agree that the price is a bit high but it's the idea that counts--and who had it first. Plus it does take time to fashion the mobile.

It's cute, but that's somethign that I could easily do myself with some old gift wrapping paper, magazine, etc. lying around, some thread and a needle. . They are cute though

I agree with daisyeater. Why spend $200 on something made out of old magazines. It would be a fun project that would be a conversation piece.

This would look cute in a corner. Much cuter than a fake ficus tree!
