Louis Vuitton continues to transport its heritage into new territory with an enriched Objets Nomades collection of foldable furniture and travel accessories. The collection pays homage to the House’s special orders of the past, such as the iconic Bed Trunk or Wardrobe Trunk, and adds a defiantly contemporary spirit.
Among the already existing Objets Nomades, they are presenting exclusively in their Design District store a new object designed by Marcel Wanders: the Lounge Chair “an unfolding and portable oasis for relaxation. The three individual modules fit into each other like a puzzle, yet when laid out create three distinct solutions – a chaise longue, armchair or pouffe” according to the designer.
First presented during Design Miami in 2012 (here), there are now 17 Objets Nomades – from a hammock to a foldable stool to lights – all in noble materials and available as limited editions or experimental prototypes. Always reinventing itself, Louis Vuitton has collaborated with some of the most creative up-and-coming and established designers working today: Patricia Urquiola, Maarten Baas, the Campana Brothers, Barber and Osgerby, Damien Langlois-Meurinne, Atelier Oï, Nendo, Gwenaël Nicolas, Raw Edges, and Marcel Wanders.
