Makers Manual #47: ⁠Scrap Mobile

Earnest Studio

Makers Manual is a collaborative project between exciting makers and STORE STORE. These downloadable manuals are a practical guide to making at home for beginners and experts.

A mobile is a moving, hanging sculpture which creates an endless choreography of light, shadow and graphic composition. Mobiles can be built in many ways, from many materials, with the choice of form, weight and position playing a decisive role in the movement and behaviour of the construction. Here, we will create mobiles from scrap material, using the unique properties of each piece to best advantage.

Earnest Studio was founded by American-born, Netherlands-based designer Rachel Griffin. Its work applies themes of modularity and multiplicity to a spectrum of projects—ranging from theory, to limited editions to serial productions—following a fascination forsimple, flexible structures with a forthright attitude towards material.
