Client Spotlight: Kinetica Hanging Mobiles by Gabriel Gal
Gabriel Gal is the founder of Kinetica Hanging Mobiles in Toronto, Canada, and has a degree in Electrical Engineering from Concordia University. After spending 20 years in the construction field designing, renovating, and building houses, he decided he needed a change.
He now uses his skills to design and create kinetic hanging art mobiles. These hanging mobiles are constructed using stainless steel wire sourced from Ferrier Wire as well as acrylic in various colours.
These air current-driven kinetic sculptures are meticulously crafted and engineered. All of them are hand assembled and custom designs can be requested for a one of a kind piece.
It is proven that art can be a source of stress relief and can also help treat symptoms of depression, anxiety, and even cancer in some cases. These artistic hanging mobiles are pleasing to the eye and evoke a relaxed and meditative state while simultaneously stimulating the brain. They can also act as a positive distraction for those who are experiencing pain or distress.
Gabriel’s initial goal was to design and donate 40 to 50 hanging mobiles to children’s hospitals in Toronto to bring some happiness and fun to the children as well as helping to pass the time while staying in hospitals. However, due to liability concerns, hospitals are not allowed to hang any sort of fixtures near or around children.
Instead, Gabriel has decided to create his own website to sell these mobiles and will donate 25% of pre-tax profits to various charities going up to 75% once his initial expenditure is recovered. These beautiful and long-lasting mobiles come in a variety of styles and colours to choose from and are perfect conversation starters for the workplace, home, public areas or be given as a unique gift.
