Louis Vuitton is debuting a world exclusive from its latest Objet Nomades collection during this year’s Design Miami.
At Design Miami in 2012, French luxury house Louis Vuitton launched its Objet Nomades collection — travel-friendly furnishings and accessories brought to design realization by a stellar roster of international designers.
Louis Vuitton invited the designers to envision foldable furniture and travel accessories that expressed the brand’s signature style and aesthetic.
The latest entries in the Objets Nomades collection will be presented in the new exhibition space of the Louis Vuitton Miami Design District store and will open Dec. 3. The collection will be enriched with a new object —to be unveiled as a world exclusive in Miami — created by Dutch designer Marcel Wanders. Available in two versions, Wanders created one of the objects in classic Louis Vuitton tones, while the other is in what Wanders calls “Ocean Drive Inspiration,” an exclusive turquoise leather that honors Miami’s architectural heritage.
Additionally, Patricia Urquiola, Maarten Baas, the Campana Brothers, Damien Langlois-Meurinne, Atelier Oï, Nendo, Gwenaël Nicolas, and Raw Edges — some of today’s most exciting designers — contributed their talents and design savoir faire. They used as inspiration Louis Vuitton’s special orders of the past — such as the iconic Bed Trunk or Wardrobe Trunk — yet added a defiantly contemporary spirit. Always reinventing itself, Louis Vuitton also commissioned new talented designers for this year’s project.
The range now includes 16 items — from a hammock to a foldable stool— all in noble materials and sold in limited editions or as experimental prototypes.
