Zim & Zou struck again by creating this amazing Paper Sculpture Village for Hermes. I find the colors of this display simply stunning.
Paper Sculpture Village for Hermes
New artist window display project for the opening of a new Hermès store in Dubai (Mall of the Emirates). Nature is surrounding us and never cease to evolve since its beginning. Its run defines the world we’re living in. Nature is linked to every living beings, and every living being is linked to it. In this project, spectators have a sneak pick of the curious characters living inside this environment. This microscopic point of view, where plants and other vegetal reign as masters, is like a kind of picture, a flash, a precise instant in nature’s unrestrained run. Life is everywhere, flowers are growing and carry away its inhabitants in their impetus. This mysterious people is evolving, building, and living right in the heart of the nature, revealing a fragment of their daily life.
Zim & Zou is a paper crafting duo based in Nancy, France. Lucie Thomas and Thibault Zimmermann both studied graphic design during three years, they then made the choice of orienting their works through the use of handcrafted objects using materials like paper, wood, thread, etc… Their favorite material is undeniably paper. they create all the elements composing their installations by hand, from drawing to cutting and assembling. Paper inspires them for its versatility, infinite range of colors and unique textures.
