My name is Valerio Vidali and I'm an italian illustrator based in Berlin.
In my spare time I enjoy woodwork and create small objects made by recicled materials.
Fisherman Mobile is a personal project.
What is a "Mobile"?
The term "Mobile" was coined in 1931 to define the early works of Alexander Calder.
A mobile is a lightweight and balanced structure that hangs suspended in the air.
What is Fisherman Mobile?
It is a wooden mobile that moves delicately thanks to slight air currents. It consists of six fish and a fisherman.
Thanks to its design the fisherman hooks the flat surfaces (up to 3 cm of thicknes) as shelves, tables, books, etc.
From his fishing rod hang six fish of different shapes and weights, suspended in the air perfectly balanced.
Fisherman Mobile is an object designed for the home decoration, but can also serve to stimulate the attention of babies (or cats!).
It is made of high quality solid wood from sustainable plantations, validated by FSC certification.
