Zim & Zou are two french artists, based in Nancy. The duo create some of the most eye-catching paper illustrations around. Their favorite material is the paper they’re manipulated to give rise to intricate and colorful sculptures. Paper inspires them for its versatility, infinite range of colors and unique textures.
Each piece is a miniature paper village populated with tiny characters, one centered around the towers of fungi, the other based around blooming lotus flowers. The two French designers focus mostly on handcrafted objects made from materials like paper, thread, wood, and leather for one-of-a-kind window displays, editorial illustrations, and posters.
