ICON of FLIGHT


以飛行實現自由的具體樣貌,用機構詮釋科技傑出的形象美學

建構你的飛行美學史

我們定義形體,用以突破邊界

飛行是夢想還是願望?是思維還是行動?數百年來,人類對於飛行擁有無限的渴望,無數冒險者懷抱勇氣,親手完成一架架飛行機,希望能就此引領人們直上雲霄,以飛行來實現自由的具體樣貌。

結構、風洞、翼寬、螺旋槳。過去的夢想家總是從零開始來設計並打造形態各異的飛機,因此我們決定以靜態素體組裝模型的形式,一起用木料、用雙手,來再現彼時在工業發展剛剛起步的年代裡,用最原始方式初探飛行可能性時,那個充滿希望的美好時刻。

icon of flight 選擇最具代表性的各種動力飛機,來向航空史上所有的開創者致敬。飛機是20世紀最偉大的發明之一,在科學與設計同步發展的年代,無須裝飾的純粹正能展現當代的「形隨機能」機構美學——我們定義形體,用以突破邊界。 

航空既不是一種工業,也不是一門科學,它是一個奇跡。

The history of flight includes countless tales of heroic achievement, selfless courage and personal sacrifice. But, incredibly, it is not a long history. Though many have tried and failed, German inventor Otto Lilienthal deserves the honour of being first to fly, constructing a procession of gliders and making thousands of flights during the 1890’s until his death in 1896.

In the winter of 1903, on a wind-swept beach just south of Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, Orville and Wilbur Wright made the first sustained, controlled, powered flight which lasted all of 12 seconds and covered a distance of 120 feet, however a later flight that day netted a flight time of 59 seconds and a distance of 852 feet.

Just 15 years later, (1918), Manfred von Richthofen, (the Red Baron) flying his German Fokker Dr.1 Tri-plane, was shot down while in hot pursuit of a British fighter across the skies of France. While the Fokker was a dangerous adversary, its design was, in large part, copied from the British Sopwith Tri-plane, one of which had crashed in Germany. The Sopwith factory went on to build one of the best (but dangerous to fly) fighters of the Great War, the Sopwith Camel. Though less skilled pilots often crashed due to the plane’s tendency to fall into a fatal spin, seasoned pilots loved its manoeuvrability.

Scarcely a decade later Charles Lindberg’s 1927 solo flight from New York to Paris made headlines around the world — and made “Lucky Lindy” a national hero, and his plane, the “Spirit of St. Louis” a venerated piece of aviation history.

World War II brought an avalanche of development to aircraft design. Fighters like the British Supermarine Spitfire, with its all-metal construction, powerful Rolls Royce Merlin engine and formidable armament, made the wood and cloth planes of World War I seem quaint in comparison.

The development of North American Aviation’s P-51 Mustang for the British RAF, when combined with the superlative Rolls Royce Merlin supercharged engine, resulted in a fighter with excellent high-altitude performance and range.

With ICONS of Flight series, our aim is to equip the aviation enthusiast with everything needed to build beautifully detailed replicas of some of the most famous vintage aircraft from aviation’s beginnings up to and including World War II.

用它來想像,在廣闊空中恣意飛行的絕對自由。用速度,搶下所有領空。
