Tempo is a mobile brand born in 2013, which produces mobiles with a beautiful structure, “kinetic sculptures”. A mobile that was born from collaborations with domestic and foreign designers, is a product that approaches space and time. These mobiles are sculptured the attractiveness of material shaping, the fine balance in relation to the gravity, and the unique rhythm repeating itself in silence. The moving parts sway elegantly in the subtle breeze and create a favorable atmosphere with a comfy accent.
Assembled Carefully By Hand
At a factory in Ashikaga City, Tochigi Prefecture, assembly professionals assemble each piece carefully by hand so as not to lose the balance. The jig for each process is made according to the shape of the product, which changes from time to time. The tools of mother tools are not born from one factory. They collect wood, metal, plastic, plating, and other parts from all over the country and carefully hand-assemble them into mobile.
Each mobile colors the space with unpredictable movements and enriches the space. Due to the precisely calculated balance, it reacts to the slightest air flow and transforms the flow of air into something you can see. Irregular movements resemble sparkling flames, returning waves, and the sound of rain. The tempo mobile is unique in its structure and is designed to be fun to watch, stimulate your imagination and its irregularly moving rhythm of fluctuations gives us healing.
Reflected Shadows On The Walls And Ceiling
Now that we have more time at home, mobiles that visually sense the wind in the room are attracting attention. Try to hang it in a place with a solid background and a hue, the corner of the room is the best. You can also enjoy the shadows reflected on the walls and ceiling.
