zim & zou crafts a paper woodland wonderland for Hermès windows in dubai

 

zim & zou have crafted a colorful paper universe for the window display of a new Hermès store in dubai at the mall of the emirates. ‘forest folks’ comprises a collection of curious characters that live inside a woodland wonderland, peeking inside their habitats and homes. two vitrines host a pair of vibrant scenes, each carefully cut, crimped, folded and fashioned from various styles and shades of paper sheets.

drawing from lush landscapes, botanical life and motifs found in nature, zim & zou unearth a curious world of creatures, caves and hidden homes for the Hermès display. oversized mushrooms, floral and feathery architectural forms and layered leafy landscapes comprise this complex world of paper parts. ‘this microscopic point of view — where plants and other vegetation reign as masters — is like a kind of picture, a flash, a precise instant in nature’s unrestrained run,’ the artists describe. ‘life is everywhere, flowers are growing and carry away its inhabitants in their impetus. the mysterious people are evolving, building, and living right in the heart of the nature, revealing a fragment of their daily life.’
