back to basics - zim and zou

source: colossal
Just when I think I've seen the most creative paper replicas, the France-based duo of Zim and Zou go above and beyond by recreating revolutionary technologies that are now outdated.

While the colors are playful, the pieces themselves are stunningly accurate and extremely detailed. Multiple layers of paper help to bring these objects to life by creating dimension and texture while the color scheme gives birth to a unified collection of nostalgia.

From Walkman to floppy disk, the Back to Basics series is created using sustainable paper and even the smallest of scraps. I particularly love the seams on the Nintendo controller and the floppy disk, which really make them seem like they are still formed from two pieces of molded plastic.
