They say we’ll print our food. Yes obviously we will. That’s a matter of taste then. There was an article on Dezeen Magazine about the next frontiers of 3D printing and we will speak a lot about it in the future. Let’s then publish this paper work by ZIM&ZOU used to realize a cover of ICON Magazine (“The February issue of Icon is devoted to ‘Food).
A series of pictures as if they were layers of a printing work.
Lucie Thomas teamed up with Thibault Zimmermann to form Zim&Zou, a french studio based in Nancy that explores different fields including paper sculpture, installation, graphic design, illustration. The duo studied graphic design during 3 years. Rather than composing images on a computer, they prefer creating real objects with paper and taking photos out of them. A number of intricate illustrations actually come from the three-dimensional installations made by Zim&Zou. Their choice of paper is due to the versatility and good quality of the material, especially when it is sculpted and photographed. Zim&Zou’s strength is to be a complementary and polyvalent duo.
