Here at Idealog we aren't exactly strangers to cardboard engineering (witness the work of art that was the cover of our 48th issue). We quite appreciate all that goes into this esoteric and tactile craft, so this festive window display at Partridge Jewellers (on Queen St and in Newmarket) caught our eye.
It's the work of paper engineer Phillip Fickling, who has designed models for the likes of 42 Below, Air New Zealand, Star Wars, and The Hobbit, among many others. All up, the project took over 500 hours (that's more than 60 eight-hour days).
Idealog has been covering the most interesting people, businesses and issues from the fields of innovation, design, technology and urban development for over 12 years. And we're asking for your support so we can keep telling those stories, inspire more entrepreneurs to start their own businesses and keep pushing New Zealand forward. Give over $5 a month and you will not only be supporting New Zealand innovation, but you’ll also receive a print subscription, an Idealog t-shirt and a copy of the new book by David Downs and Dr. Michelle Dickinson, No. 8 Recharged (while stocks last).
