Flensted Niels Bohr Atom Mobile
In 1913, Danish physicist Niels Bohr developed the revolutionary model of the atom, which has accelarated the sciences the past 100 years. To mark 100 years of this significant scientific development, the Flensted family worked with the Niels Bohr Institute of Copenhagen to create this new, beautiful mobile. The mobile moves freely, with its compenents representing the atomic nucleus center and orbiting electrons. Made of stainless steel and wood. Hangs 11" tall by 11" wide. No assembly necesssary. Made in Denmark.
This is even better than the picture! The gold ball reflects onto the silver often making it look gold at certain angles-a two toned look. I ordered 4 for my husband's dr office and patients are very complimentary of them!
This mobile is an excellent representation of the atom with its nucleus & surrounding electrons. The movement is realistic & responsive to surrounding air movement & fibrations. I love it.
Two of the orbits are not circular and banging/locking other orbits.
Good service! This design is simple and good quality!
Easy order, quick shipping, wonderful packing, Mobile unfurled out of the box beautifully and easily, hung it, love it...Thank you
I live in the middle of some science deniers and find art in many forms piques people's interest. This beautiful mobile of the atom hangs like a chandelier in my entry way of an 850 sq. ft condo. If not noticed upon entry, it's delicate form turns in the sunlight or a slight breeze, thus causing comment. People are delighted with it and so am I.
we got this for our nursery (science themed) and its absolutely perfect! looks really awesome and well worth the price for us, especially since its about $20 dollars cheaper on this site than any other. super fragile and will tangle easily, but that should be well known looking at it. came well packaged and was not tangled at all! very pleased :)
