There's a beautiful story behind the wooden Star Mobile by Sukima. Its Milky Way galaxy, full moon and constellation of cascading stars were inspired by the Japanese Tanabata festival — the celebration of one day of the year when two star-crossed lovers can meet.
Legend has it that when Orihime (Vega) and Hikoboshi (Altair) angered the God of Heaven, they were separated by the Milky Way, only permitted to reunite on July 7.
Sukima's Milky Way is split into two sections — a pathway for love, surrounded by stars.
The geometric shapes and cutouts give this enchanting mobile a light and airy sophistication. Flat-packed in a special foldout cardboard box, it's easy to tidy away. But why would you? It can be enjoyed all year round.
