“Lucie Thomas teamed up with Thibault Zimmermann to form Zim&Zou, a french studio based in Nancy that explores different fields including paper sculpture, installation, graphic design, illustration. Both aged 25, they studied graphic design during 3 years in an artschool. Rather than composing images on a computer, they prefer creating real objects with paper and taking photos out of them.”
French duo Zim and Zou have created some entirely captivating paper sculptures of incredible intricacy. Each element is truly well crafted, especially considering how unforgiving something as physical as matte construction paper can be. They’ve done particularly well with the Future of Food piece, a day-glow burger complete with tiny geometric shavings. A perfect little 3D illustration to point out the direction of commercialized eating. Pieces shown below: Future of Food, Chef’s Mask I and Chef’s Mask II. See more here.
