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.
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.
