Marco Mahler

Richmond, VA

I’m a kinetic sculptor specializing in mobiles. I make handmade mobiles, large custom-made mobiles, 3D printed mobiles and kinetic sculptures.

In chronological order: my work has been featured at New York Fashion Week in Bryant Park. I’ve contributed articles about mobiles to several publications such as Make Magazine, Saatchi Art and Houzz. The 3D printed mobiles, created in a collaboration with Henry Segerman, have been featured in Gestalten’s “Printing Things – Visions and Essentials for 3D Printing” and at the 2015 3D Print Shows in California, Paris and Dubai. A series of three large custom mobiles I designed and made won 3rd Prize at the 2015 International Kinetic Art Competition, organized by KAO, the largest kinetic art and sculpture organization in the world, as part of the International Kinetic Art Exhibit and Symposium in Boynton Beach, Florida. I made a 33 foot (10 meter) mobile for a commission I won in which I competed against 22 sculptors including Zaha Hadid. I designed and made a custom mobile for Robert A. M. Stern, former dean of the Yale School of Architecture, for his room at the 2017 Kips Bay Designer Show House. In a collaboration with film director Neil Burger, I custom designed and made a large mobile for the movie The Upside, released in 2019, and starring Bryan Cranston, Kevin Hart and Nicole Kidman, in which it is featured throughout the movie. In 2022, I had the privilege to custom-design and make a two-part mobile sculpture for the atrium at the Learning Commons at Kettering University, a highly innovative state-of-the-art 105,000 square-foot architectural masterpiece.

I was born in Chicago and grew up in Switzerland. After New York City and Portland, Oregon, I now live in Richmond, Virginia with my two kids, where I work out of a studio in the arts district.
