During Miami Art Basel 2018 Louis Vuitton Objets Nomades has shown exclusively three new forniture items
Text by: Annarosa Laureti
Born in 2012, the collection has always been a meeting occasion between maison’s savoire faire and the creative mind of many and respectable architects, artists and interior designers such as Fratelli Campana, India Mahdavi, Marcel Wanders and Barber & Osgerby.
Obviously starting from the idea of travel – the leitmotiv of each Louis Vuitton’s collection – every piece presented refers to a different place and to a particular way to see the entire world.
Anemona table, created by the new entry Atelier Biagetti, homages, with its fluid and deep blue shapes, the Adriatic coasts near Ravenna as well as the bold costumes of Teatro alla Scala in Milan, respectively the home and adopted city of the Italian studio’s designers, Alberto Biagetti and Laura Baldassarri.
Then Sweden culture is represented by the other table of the collection, the Serpentine table by Atelier Oï. Its American walnut wood legs, like those of dancers involved in a lively and excited movement, are interwoven one to another with leather bands to sustain a glass flat surface.
In addition to Objets Nomades collection, the maison has also thought about a selection of little home decorative creations, Les Petits Nomades, now enriched with the Blossom vase, by Tokujin Yoshioka.
Handmade by Murano’s artisans, this elegant article is available in two color hues, the black and the transparent one.
Finally two iconic pieces – the Cocoon rocking chair by Fratelli Campana and the Ribbon Dance double armchair by André Fu – are redesigned in different variations of colors and precious materials such as sheep fur, lamb wool and black leather.
