Kyle Bean’S Evolution of the Mobile Phone in Papercraft

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  June 18, 2009


This amazing work of paper art envisions the evolution of the mobile phone using the style of those classic Russian Matryoshka nesting dolls.

Artist/Designer/Illustrator Kyle Bean recently created Mobile Evolution, an intricate set of nesting models from cardboard. See how each phone fits neatly inside it’s older, larger sibling?

Designs start with the classic late 1980s Motorola DynaTAC “brick” phone and take us all the way up to the Apple iPhone (though I’m not sure if that’s the 3GS there). See if you can name all the phones without cheating.

Be sure to check out the video clip over on Kyle’s portfolio page to see how they all fit together.

And if you happen to be in the UK, you can see Mobile Evolution in person for the next couple of weeks over at the YCN Building at 72 Rivington Street in London.
