Not only kids are attracted to objects that can make us fly and feel light. Lifting up high into the clouds and sky is an old and recurring dream of most of us. We seem to have a some sort of natural-born and mysterious attraction to flying objects.
New York-based Jolie Mae Signorile and Gabriel Fredericks Cohen were drawn to the idea of flying and flying objects as well. These two creative minds already came up with plenty of brilliant product ideas under their brand name Frederick & Mae. This time the American duo has created a unique kite series. But what’s the deal about kites? The answer is quite simple: the designers were always attracted to those items – just like kites – which show up in various contexts throughout history and across the globe. According to some sources these objects have been around for about 3000 years and originate from China.
Four kite versions have been created by the designers and each of them has its distinctive characteristics and materials. They were all given a symbolic name so they can have their own personality and carry a deeper message. Let’s take the example of the biggest kite: this was named Floralia and was inspired by a Roman festival dedicated to life, spring and celebration. This beautiful kite is constructed with light-weight bamboo, rice paper and pressed flowers. The flower motives and details are truly eye-cathcing. The other three models are named as Morning, Noon and Night and they have their individual sizes, patterns and colours.
These kites from Frederick & Mae might be the prettiest models one can ever see in the sky. They can also become nice home decor items on any walls, if one is willing to pay the price of $64 to $160. The kites can be purchased here.
