Lucie Thomas and Thibault Zimmermann of Zim&Zou studio explore different fields including paper sculpture, installation, illustration. After graphic design studies, rather than composing images on a computer, they prefer creating real objects using paper or other tangible materials. Their choice of paper is due to the versatility and good quality of the material, especially when it is sculpted and photographed. www.zimandzou.fr
