This mobile made up of intertwined steel branches is by Japanese designer Koichi Futatsumata of Case-Real.
Called In the Sky, the mobile can be assembled by hooking the bent metal rods over one another and is secured at the top by a tiny hoop.
Here's some more information from Case-Real and E&Y:
IN THE SKY
For edition HORIZONTAL / E&Y
Branches fall and tangle with the ones below, gently swinging in the air. I felt a kind of beauty, within the fragile balance a coincidence can create.
My interest towards this kind of beauty gave birth to the "in the sky", an object which shall frame the space with richness.

- edition HORIZONTAL / E&Y -
A multiple is an object. An object meaning something. Objects inherit their true values, meanings, and often provide mental satisfaction when taken in one's hand. Without prioritizing function, to give the joy to possess, by creating an object appealing to one's inner depth.
And to give a view, a horizon, where various people and objects are connected side by side. "edition HORIZONTAL" is a new collection and an announcement made by E&Y in collaboration with various designers.
