Mobile phone Russian dolls

Published

It's sometimes hard to believe how massive mobile phones used to be. Poor Gordon Gekko must have had serious arm strain.

Ingenious Brighton-based designer Kyle Bean has served us with a worthy reminder of how much technology has changed with these awe-inspiring Russian dolls.

Taking us all the way from the 80s hand-weakener through to the pocket-friendly iPhone, Bean's 'Mobile Phone Evolution' works as both a fascinating study on technological change and as something you want to reach out and play with for a good hour straight.

The replicas fit inside one another perfectly and if you look closely, you can probably recognise your first handset in the line-up. Although if you're heading towards the left, you may not want to admit it.
