Lucie Thomas and Thibault Zimmermann are the wunderkind designers behind the contemporary design studio Zim and Zou based in Nancy, France. The duo explores a myriad of mediums including paper sculpture, installation, graphic design, illustration, and web design for their clients, landing their work in numerous print publications including Papercraft 2. This latest collection of work entitled Back to Basics is almost a year in the making (and apparently still in progress). Each colorful device is cut meticulously by hand utilizing sustainable paper, and even the smallest “waste” scraps are re-used to form some of the smallest detailed components. These are only a handful of the photos, see many more detailed shots here. Also check out their paper Gameboy from a while back. Sweet!
