The art of cut and paste

Zim and Zou is a French graphic design studio that has left us wide-eyed with its latest project: Back to basics. Its creators, Lucie Thomas and Thibault Zimmerman, work in several disciplines but their greatest skill undoubtedly lies in paper sculpting. 
In Back to basics they make replicas of classic technology (yes, there is such a term) that already form part of our memory to the finest detail. Truth is, I would liked to have had a Walkman as colourful as this. :) 


We can see them in action in this video, working by hand with miniscule parts. The technique and precision are enviable, especially given how difficult it is to mix paper and glue without getting the sticky stuff everywhere...Plus they use recycled paper and make the most of the off-cuts. What more can you ask for?

If you want to see the entire collection, look here.
