Louis Vuitton Objets Nomades Collection in Design Shanghai 2017
Louis Vuitton will present its Objets Nomades collection during one of the world's most prestigious international design events, Design Shanghai 2017. (From Mar.7 to Mar.11)
Creativity, functionality and innovation have driven Louis Vuitton since the mid-19th century. A design pioneer, Louis Vuitton has constantly anticipated fashion and kept pace with evolving lifestyles. The Objets Nomades is a collection of furniture that reinvents the House’s Art of Travel.
The Objets Nomades for Design Shanghai range now includes 10 items – from a hammock to a foldable stool – all in noble materials and sold in limited editions or experimental prototypes. Conceived in collaboration with some of the most creative designers of our times: Atelier Oï, Barber and Osgerby, the Campana Brothers, Gwenaël Nicolas, Raw Edges, Patricia Urquiola and Marcel Wanders, 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. Louis Vuitton already participates in the most influential global forum for design --- Salone Internationale del Mobile di Milano, and Design Miami.
This is the first time Louis Vuitton collaborates with Design Shanghai exposing the Objets Nomades in their Collectable Hall.
Sharing a sense of intuitiveness, desire and pleasure, the Objets Nomades continue Louis Vuitton’s tradition of offering inspiring and surprising designs to clients all over the world. The beauty of fine materials, the plasticity of forms, carefully balanced proportions, complex craftsmanship, close attention to details: the ideas held dear by remarkable designers and the exceptional know-how of Louis Vuitton come together in the Objets Nomades collection.
