Handmade mobile from Japanese Tempo mobiles.
I'm only sleeping - Tempo Mobile
This is a step-like mobile consisting of seven wood beams, balancing levers which gradually change its shape over time. The slow-moving figure appears to be dozing off in a dream. “Please don’t wake me, no, don’t shake me. Leave me where I am I’m only sleeping.”

Tempo is a project by the creatives at Mother Tool, a design company and workshop who have been searching for new form through kinetic sculpture. Based in Ashikaga in Tochigi, Mother Tool was founded by Toshiya Murohashi and his wife Miho Nakamura with their ideas being to link old technology with modern design. In collaboration with various designers and workshops in Japan they have produced this stunning selection of mobiles and kinetic sculptures that are playful but delicately crafted by hand.

With the help of contemporary designers they have been able to produce a stunning collection of mobiles that are sure to look great and bring a sense of play in to any home or interior space.
