these shadow mobiles by smarin, sway like clouds in the sky. they come in a range of sizes and are moved gently by the wind. made of pure linen voile or silks, their translucency allows light to filter through, casting shadows on the surrounding environment.

  • do all objects need to be usable in the tangible sense? I find the design very beautiful and tranquil and would love to have one in my house; the use of shadows and outer/inner lights would give it such a beautiful exposure to the room and the design itself! love it!

  • I was in a bad mood today before I came across these objects of beauty and whimsy. I think they are great—the kind of idea that I wish I had thought of. The livingstones that are shown are equally fabulous. If I could afford these I would buy them.

  • this is a very forced design concept . hardly usable. it hardly makes any sense tell me the exact use of the object . its not even a proper showcase.
