Louis Vuitton unveils its Objets Nomades Collection in its Miami Design District store. Featuring 16 travel-inspired items from 11 designers and studios such as Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby, Christian Liaigre, Fernando and Humberto Campana, and Oki Sato of Nendo. LV is known for their folding beds and travel furniture in trunks but Objets Nomades are a combination of production and special order pieces featuring of course the luxurious Nomade leather. Above is Campanas’ Maracatu limited-edition hanging travel cabinet ($52500), which is crafted out of Nomade strips.
Other items that are still in the prototype stage are Patricia Urquiola’s Stool, which unfolds like a flower; Nendo’s lamp, a leather shade backed by LEDs that conveniently rolls into a tube and tucks neatly into a leather carrying strap; and Maarten Baas’s Beach Chair, a new interpretation on the old-fashioned stadium seat, that folds in attaché case.
The collection will be on view through Dec. 9, and will then travel to the following Vuitton boutiques: Omotesando in Tokyo, Marina Bay in Singapore, Taipei 101 in Taipei, New Bond Street in London, Champs-Élysées in Paris and SoHo in New York.
The Bell Lamp, designed by Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby, has a blown-glass shade with a solar-powered light, and Nomade straps for hanging. $3350
