Since its launch in 2012, the Louis Vuitton Objets Nomades has grown into a collection of forty-five limited edition travel-inspired objects, imagined by some of the world's most renowned designers: Barber&Osgerby, Campana Brothers, André Fu, Damien Langlois-Meurinne, Nendo, Gwenaël Nicolas, Raw Edges, Patricia Urquiola, Marcel Wanders, India Mahdavi e Tokujin Yoshioka and, most recently, Atelier Biagetti and Zanellato/Bortotto. Louis Vuitton will be unveiling the latest additions to the Collection at the Palazzo Serbelloni in Milan during Fuorisalone 2019.
Among the new pieces is Anemona by Milan-based Atelier Biagetti, which is a remarkable, glass-topped dining table with undulating base covered in soft beige leather. The Italian duo Zanellato/Bortotto makes its debut with Mandala, a tripartite screen of intricately woven leather inspired by nomadic craftmanship. A new selection of inventive, poetic work from established Objets Nomades designers includes the Campana Brothers' Bulbo, a cosy seat that transports the sitter in a cocoon-like tropical flower of leather and soft fabric. The duo Raw Edges’ Dolls are a set of joyously playful, endlessly customisable chairs that, like traditional Louis Vuitton trunks, can be hand-painted with unique designs. Marcel Wanders enriches the collection with four new objects: the beguiling pair of Diamond Sofa and Armchair with their bases of intertwined ash and rich leather upholstery; Venezia, a lamp inspired by traditional Venetian lanterns; and Diamond Vase, made of red, handblown Murano glass. India Mahdavi brings her lacquered Talisman tray, with its “benevolent eye” design, while Tokujin Yoshioka presents the Monogram pattern-inspired Blossom Vase, made of heavy, handcrafted Murano glass.
