Back to basics

Paper replicas of iconic gadgets.

You’ve got to admit, there’s something comforting about the technology that paved the way for our modern-day gadgets. We’ve got a special place in our heart for the good ol’ Polaroid, the Walkman, the Game Boy and the floppy disk, and apparently so do the folks at France-based design studio Zim and Zhou. For their “Back to Basics” project, they painstakingly recreated each item using carefully cut and scored pieces of coloured paper, and the results are truly breathtaking.
