French creative duo Zim & Zou have created a colorful paper universe for the window display of the new Hermès store in Dubai at the Mall of the Emirates. Titled ‘Forest Folks’, the project features two scenes referencing to a fairy-tale world in which oversized mushrooms, floral and layered leafy landscapes comprise this complex world of paper artwork.
“Nature is surrounding us and never cease to evolve since its beggining. Its run defines the world we’re living in. Nature is linked to every living beings, and every living being is linked to it. In this project, spectators have a sneak pick of the curious characters living inside this environment,” explain the artist. “This microscopic point of view, where plants and other vegetal reign as masters, is like a kind of picture, a flash, a precise instant in nature’s unrestrained run. Life is everywhere, flowers are growing and carry away its inhabitants in their impetus. This mysterious people is evolving, building, and living right in the heart of the nature, revealing a fragment of their daily life.”
