Shockingly Realistic '80s Electronics Made Out of Neon Paper


When we remember the ’80s — and, truth be told, this might have something to do with the fact that we were kids then — we always seem to recall the era in neon colors. French graphic design studio Zim & Zou (the duo of Lucie Thomas and Thibault Zimmermann) must have similar memories, as they’ve sculpted a bright, wonderfully detailed series of retro electronics out of brightly colored paper. From a film-spewing Leica and a photo-spitting Polaroid to a Walkman with headphones and a cassette tape that fits inside it. Check out some of our favorite photos of Zim & Zou’s work after the jump, then click over to Behance to see the whole set, along with a video documenting their process.
