Fuorisalone 2015: Louis Vuitton presents Object Nomades

Fuorisalone 2015: Louis Vuitton presents Object Nomades

Louis Vuitton added new items to the Objets Nomades collection of foldable furniture and travel accessories. A new collaboration with 3 talented designers: the Raw Edges, Gwenaël Nicolas and Damien Langlois-Meurinne was presented at the frilly, 19th century Palazzo Bocconi on the Corso Venezia 48 during Milan Design week 2015.

With a spumante in one hand, a camera in the other we, Mimi Blogger Team, strolled the rooms of the Palazzo, which were filled with tropical flowers, plants, and extremely well crafted high-end design. For a moment we felt how traveling in colonial times must have been like; Heavenly.

Raw Edges discusses their Concertina Collection: “We loved the challenge of working on a collection of collapsible objects, with the focus on how to make them look large, surprising and with real presence when they are expanded”.
Gwenaël Nicolas, taking inspiration by Ernest Hemingway’s African travels, has created the Ernest Bed and the Miller Lamp, which were ”an opportunity to discover a mysterious world” and, about his collaboration with Louis Vuitton, he loved “the idea that the designer could propose the object he wanted to design: it’s a very personal and  serious commitment”. The Valet and the Totem Floral by Damien Langlois-Meurinne, spawned from his idea: “A designer is nothing without the savoir-faire of the artisans who bring his ideas and sketches to life”.

The Object Nomades collection, created in collaboration with several international designers, was presented for the first time during Design Miami in 2012.
The Raw Edges, Gwenaël Nicolas and Damien Langlois-Meurinne have increased the existing collaborations beside some of the most creative designers of our time:  Campana Brothers, Patricia Urquiola, Barber & Osgerby, Nendo, Maarten Baas and Atelier Oï. These 9 designers have created 16 Objets Nomades which are prototypes or available in a limited edition.
