Fantastic Miniature Worlds Bursting with Color for Hermès Window Display in Dubai

Fantastic Miniature Worlds of Nature Bursting with Color for Hermès Window Display in Dubai - Floral Full

The French duo Zim and Zou have graced us with their stunning works in the past, from vintage electronics to colorful chef's masks covered in festive fruits and veggies. All in all, their work has an underlying theme of colors in unique combinations and their attention to detail.

These two papercraft window displays are for the opening of a new Hermès store in Dubai (Mall of the Emirates). Through this project, spectators have a sneak peek at the curious characters living inside this nature filled environment. One window has a motif of a mushroom village, while the other shows blooming flower huts. This microscopic point of view shows plants and other vegetal life reigning as masters, like a kind of picture, a flash, a precise instant in nature’s unrestrained run.

Reading his interview with us has been truly inspiring! I have also included below another interview which touched my heart as a designer and continues to reaffirm perseverance of ones dreams.
