INSPIRATION :: Magnetic Mobiles

iscd Foundation Course students can be sure in looking overseas for guidance towards object and spatial design as Laikingland is a creative collaboration based in both the UK and The Netherlands, whose intention is to design and manufacture beautifully crafted kinetic objects that engage, and evoke a sense of play and nostalgia. Their most recent product are the Magnet Mobiles by Ivan Black, which consist of lightweight rotating forms that spiral around magnet and ball bearing mechanisms.

The near frictionless mechanisms allow the Magnet Mobiles to be activated with a simple light blow.
