Zim & Zou Paper Masterpieces

French graphic design team Lucie Thomas and Thibault Zimmermann of Zim & Zou create the most intricate sculptures and installations all out of paper and then photograph the amazing results. Doing away with computer composed graphics, the experimental duo focus on tangible craftsmanship through the use of recycled paper. Their beautiful creations have been commissioned by the likes of IBM, The Washington Post and Hermes. They’ve created everything from fruits, old-school electronics to jungle animals. Their contemporary work highlight the infinite and mind blowing possibilities of basic paper.

How I would love to have one of their multi-color masterpieces hanging in my apartment! Here’s a video of the designers at work.
