france-based zim & zou studio have crafted a window for the hermès store in paseo de gracià, barcelona with intricately folded and vibrantly colored paper and leather. made entirely by hand, the orange-and-blue-hued scene tells the story of a small fox who inhabits the space with his own personal objects, giving a glimpse into his quirks and personality. ‘the fox’s den’ is completed with furniture and household objects all made of paper, from the table and stool he sits on to the assemblage of photos hanging on the floral-patterned wall. hermès accessories such as ties, scarves and shoes are placed throughout the dwelling, uniting the fashion label’s wearable designs and the delicate and complex papercraft work.
