Zim & Zou's Back to Basics

Tuesday, 18 October 2011

This paper sculpture project is pretty amazing! Called Back to Basics, the project is the work of Zim & Zou, a graphic design studio based in Nancy, France. Thibault Zimmerman (Zim) and Lucie Thomas (Zou) spent a year painstakingly building these electronic items, which include a Polaroid camera, an old Leica, a Walkman (with cassette), a cordless phone a floppy disc and a Nintendo game control.

Thibault and Lucie only work with PEFC sustainable paper and endeavour to leave very few paper scraps behind, and they have incorporated a range of bright and colourful papers in this project to reflect a sense of 1980s nostalgia. This cleverly crafted personal project is testamount to Zim & Zou's unique approach to design.
