Geometric mobile Himmeli
Long before Christmas tree as a symbol of Nordic Christmas traditions these delicate, geometric mobiles called Himmeli were a part of Christmas decorations in Scandinavia. They were originally made of straws and used from Christmas to Midsummer. The fragile decoration 'danced' with the drafts over the kichen table. There are many stories about the origin, but the designer of this modern version in plywood is fond of the one which tells how the ordinary people were able to experience the same 'holy' feeling they had had seeing chandeliers in churches.
Today Himmeli decorations are very trendy in Nordic homes, and used throughout the year.
