This mobile was designed by Bruno Munari. The mobile is adjusted to the new-born’s sight: his/her eyes are capable of making a black and white picture with grey shades. The geometric shapes are used because the child finds them interesting and they attract his/her attention. Geometric shapes are balanced with a glass sphere which reflects light. The Munari mobile are so light that they move with air and by doing so attract the baby’s attention. The new-born comes into the world from the dark womb so s/he likes the light and dark contrasts. Observing these black and white geometric shapes encourages his/her research of environment, encourages the development of concentration and offers him/her a pleasant observing experience.
We attach the Munari mobile with a string on the ceiling so that it hangs over the lying child approx. 30 cm measured from the lowest geometric shape.
