Design
Where form meets function

Luca Iaconi-Stewart is obsessed with aviation and for nearly a decade, the designer has been building a very detailed model of the Boeing 777 aircraft made entirely from paper.

Although working on and off it throughout the years, the idea began as a school project years ago, which eventually transformed into an incredible rebuilt model that is still a work in progress, with Manila folders as its main material source only.

Having gained a strong following on YouTube to document his process, Luca displays his meticulous attention to detail as the featured videos above, as well as below, present hair-thin strands of paper that comprise hydraulic lines on landing gear, 300 plus seats, each compared to the size of a gumdrop, retractable landing gear, complete with suspension, its wing flaps and more.
