This mobile is composed of two anodized aluminum plates. One horizontal and the other vertical split on the sides, so that the plates intersect. A metal bar separates the two plates so that they are at a good distance and do not touch each other. There are also two weights at the ends of each plate to hold them in place. This allows the two plates to turn freely on themselves with the wind.

tempo is a mobile brand born in 2013.
A mobile with a beautiful structure, born from collaborations with domestic and foreign designers, is a product that approaches space and time.At a factory in Ashikaga City, Tochigi Prefecture, assembly professionals assemble each piece carefully by hand so as not to lose the balance.The perfect balance of materials, modeling, and gravity is attractive.
Mobiles are said to be “kinetic sculptures.”
Cascaded in a fine balance, the moving parts sway elegantly in the subtle breeze and create a favorable atmosphere with a comfy accent. tempo is a series of mobiles which sculptured the attractiveness of material shaping, the fine balance in relation to the gravity, and the unique rhythm repeating itself in silence.
