Since 2012, the Maison Louis Vuitton has developed a collection of objects inspired by travel, calling on the minds of today’s most creative designers, in line with the savoir faire of the Maison.
Unveiled five years ago, Louis Vuitton’s Objets Nomades collection continues the brand’s long tradition of classy crafted travel objects. Some of the world’s most renowned designers have since imagined stunning travel-inspired Objets.
Today, there are 25 Objets Nomades and 10 among them are presented for the first time during 2017 Fuori Salone in Milano/ Milan Design Week 2017. From a hammock to a deckchair, from a swing chair to a foldable stool, Each Objet embodies the same concept: a love for fine materials, carefully balanced proportions, and meticulous craftsmanship.
“The limited editions and experimental prototypes that make up the Objets Nomades collection all pay homage to the House’s special orders of the past and add the defiantly contemporary visions of creative designers from around the world: Atelier Oï, Maarten Baas, Barber and Osgerby, the Campana Brothers, Damien Langlois- Meurinne, Nendo, Gwenaël Nicolas, Raw Edges, Patricia Urquiola, Marcel Wanders, and, most recently, India Mahdavi and Tokujin Yoshioka,” commented Louis Vuitton.
This year’s novelties include Marcel Wanders’ Paravent screen, the Campana Brothers’ cloud-shaped Bomboca sofa, three new pieces from Swiss-based practice Atelier Oï, Raw Edges’ origami-like My Shelf, and the blue leather marquetry table designed by India Mahdavi. The bestseller of the luxury furniture collection is the £30,000-plus Campana Brothers’ suspended Cocoon seat wrapped in leather.
