Trans­port­ing its her­itage into new ter­ri­tory, Louis Vuit­ton en­riches its col­lec­tion of fold­able fur­ni­ture and travel ac­ces­sories cre­ated in col­lab­o­ra­tion with sev­eral in­ter­na­tional de­sign­ers first pre­sented dur­ing the De­sign Mi­ami fair in 2012.

The Ob­jets No­mades range now in­cludes 16 items – from a ham­mock to a fold­able stool – all in noble ma­te­ri­als and sold in lim­ited edi­tions or ex­per­i­men­tal pro­to­types. Cre­ated in col­lab­o­ra­tion with some of the most cre­ative de­sign­ers of our times: Pa­tri­cia Urquiola, Maarten Baas, the Cam­pana Broth­ers, Bar­ber & Os­gerby, Damien Lan­glois-meurinne, Ate­lier Oï, Nendo, Gwe­naël Ni­co­las and Raw Edges, 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. Al­ways rein­vent­ing it­self, Louis Vuit­ton also com­mis­sioned new tal­ented de­sign­ers for the pro­ject this year. 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.

DE­SIGN

Lux­ury, func­tion­al­ity and in­no­va­tion have driven Louis Vuit­ton since the mid 19th cen­tury. A de­sign pi­o­neer, Louis Vuit­ton con­stantly an­tic­i­pated fash­ion and kept pace with evolv­ing lifestyles. The en­counter be­tween the House’s know-how and nu­mer­ous renowned de­sign­ers has given Louis Vuit­ton the oc­ca­sion to de­velop in­ven­tive new shapes and ma­te­ri­als that be­came ref­er­ences in the world of de­sign. To­day, the tra­di­tion is re­newed with the cre­ation of the Ob­jets No­mades.

KNOW HOW

The beauty of fine ma­te­ri­als, plas­tic­ity of forms, care­fully bal­anced pro­por­tions, com­plex­ity of crafts­man­ship, close at­ten­tion to de­tails… The pre­cepts dear to re­mark­able de­sign­ers and the ex­cep­tional knowhow of Louis Vuit­ton unite in the Ob­jets No­mades, all pro­duced and sold in lim­ited-edi­tion. This as­so­ci­a­tion, born of aes­thetic rigor, flair for in­no­va­tion and ar­ti­sanal ex­per­tise, is the fo­cal point of all cre­ative ac­tiv­ity at Louis Vuit­ton. The ma­te­ri­als have been painstak­ingly se­lected to give the pieces in the col­lec­tion their no­blest ex­pres­sion. Each form has its fab­ric, and each piece its en­hance­ment – fold­able, mod­u­lar, por­ta­ble – de­mand­ing the most metic­u­lous crafts­man­ship.
