Zim & Zou

Nancy, France

"Mathematically, a line is the distance between two points. It can be seen going from nothing to a final result; it's a way to create or to express yourself. Line is one of the foundations of typography and drawing."

Zim & Zou (Nancy, France)


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 and illustration. Both still only 25, they studied graphic design together for three years at an art school. Rather than composing images on a computer, they prefer creating real objects with paper and taking photos of them. A number of intricate illustrations actually come from the three-dimensional installations made by Zim"Zou.
