Louis Vuitton Objets Nomades 2015 collection delights visitors inside the Palazzo Bocconi at the ongoing the Salon del Mobile at Milano Design Week.
The Milan Furniture Fair, held annually in Milan, is the largest trade fair of its kind in the world. Showcasing the latest in furniture and design from every corner of the world, it is considered a leading venue for the display of new products by designers of furniture, lighting and other home furnishings. Louis Vuitton has commissioned nine established and upcoming designers to reinvent Louis Vuitton’s Art of Travel with a collection of travel-inspired objects celebrating the encounter between savoir-faire and design.
Inspired by Louis Vuitton’s Special Orders, the entire collection of Objets Nomades pays tribute to the iconic products and signatures of the House. An array of travel-inspired furnishings includes a hammock to living room furniture in precious Nomade leather along with a foldable bed to a hanging Maracatu travel cabinet. While the armchair-hammock has been conceived by Patricia, the beach chairs have been crafted by Maarten.
Michael Burke, Louis Vuitton’s president and chief executive officer updated WWD that “We’re a house that is inspired by design, but we don’t want to be a furniture house; we like to feel that we’re guests and we’re invited to the Salone [del Mobile].” He added that each year, the established and up-and-coming designers contributing to Objets Nomades are “given a blank sheet of paper.”
