One of the protagonists of the Milan Design week 2017
The Objets Nomades Collection, enriched with 10 new items, was presented during the Milan Design Week 2017, from April 4th to 9th at Palazzo Bocconi.
The collection’s range, created in 2012, now includes 25 collectable and limited edition items, from a hammock to a deckchair, from a swing chair to a foldable stool.
Each product embodies the same ideals that combine the design skills of international designers and the savoir-faire of Louis Vuitton. The Objets Nomades collection keeps alive Louis Vuitton’s long tradition of beautifully crafted travel objects.
“Creativity, functionality and innovation have driven Louis Vuitton for more than 160 years. A design pioneer, Louis Vuitton has constantly anticipated fashion and kept pace with evolving lifestyles, and over time, the combination of its savoir-faire and the talents of renowned designers has created opportunities to develop inventive shapes, materials and products. This tradition continues with the creation of the Objets Nomades, an ever-expanding collection of limited edition, collectable furniture that is both inspired by the House’s historic Art of Travel and a reinterpretation of its essential spirit.”
This collection is made by the most creative designers of our times: Atelier Oï, Maarten Baas, Barber and Osgerby, the Campana Brothers, Damien Langlois-Meurinne, Nendo, Gwenaël Nicolas, Raw Edges, Patricia Urquiola, Marcel Wanders, and most recently, India Mahdavi and Tokujin Yoshioka.
The collection includes very different products, starting from the

All the objects are realized in a skin the company calls “Nomade”: it is soft and strong at the same time, and they are dedicated to particular travelers that love the link between beauty and functionality.
