Clara von Zweigbergk’s Geometry for Artecnica

Clara von Zweigbergk’s Geometry for Artecnica

Clara von Zweigbergk …  “the shapes quickly came together as a mobile. I think of them as planets and like to see the colors change while gently turning.”

Clara was inspired by the geometric design of polyedra – The Themis Mobile is a delicate, geometric décor piece composed of five faceted ornaments, each with its own distinct palette of color: fluorescent neons, purples and browns.

The stark contrast of the vibrantly colored planes creates a dramatic visual effect, yet as they slowly turn, suspended in the air by a delicate frame and thin wires, the effect is quietly striking, fragile, and ethereally beautiful.

Following the success of her first hanging mobile with Artecnica, Clara von Zweigbergk is at it again. The newly released  Themis Trio Mobile features a juxtaposition of neon and muted colorways, furthering her signature color pairings now seen across three Artecnica products: Themis, Bloom Cards, and now Themis Trio.
