Since its introduction in 2012, Louis Vuitton Objets Nomades Collection has gone from strength to strength and expanded its range. As most of you all already know this is a collection inspired by Louis Vuitton’s travel-centric origins and feature objects (Objets) that are easily transportable (Nomades).
Ten of the objects in 25 piece collection they are taking to this year’s Fuori Salone in Milano are new. They also added two renowned designers and their work to the contributor’s list – India Mahdavi and Tokujin Yoshioka. The duo joins a prestigious group of creative designers from around the world who contributed to the project previously. Mahdavi’s contribution is a two-piece blue leather marquetry side table, while Yoshioka designed a foldable stool in white.
Who’s who of the list include Atelier Oï, Maarten Baas, Barber and Osgerby, the Campana Brothers, Damien Langlois-Meurinne, Nendo, Gwenaël Nicolas, Raw Edges, Patricia Urquiola and Marcel Wanders.
The items they are taking to this year’s Fuori Salone include everything from a hammock to a deckchair, from a swing chair to a foldable stool. All crafted from finest available materials, beautifully designed with lots of attention paid to details.
Fuori Salone and Salone Internazionale del Mobile are part of Milan Design Week. Both started around the same time in the 1980s to help advance the work of furnishing and industrial design sectors by showcasing their work to buyers and other interested parties. Unlike Salone del Mobile, they don’t have a central place or a fair where everyone gathers. Fuori offers assistance to exhibitors by helping them find locations and other logistics such as communications to set up shop anywhere in Milan during the design week. This year’s edition will run from April 4th through 9th. Louis Vuitton Objets Nomades will be showcased at Palazzo Bocconi.
