At a specially designed exhibition space within the iconic Garage Traversi, Louis Vuitton unveils two new additions to the Objets Nomades collections and a wide selection of recent and classic pieces. Also, for the fair’s duration, the Maison brings Studio Rochel’s ovoid work “Nova House” to the heart of Milan as part of the Maison’s tradition of exhibiting nomadic architecture.
One Decade of Impeccable Design
Since its creation in 2012, the Louis Vuitton Objets Nomades collection of inventive and functional furniture and objects has expanded to welcome designs by an ever-growing roster of renowned international designers, including Fernando and Humberto Campana, Atelier Oï, Raw Edges, Frank Chou, André Fu, and Marcel Wanders Studio. Both inspired by Maison’s 160-year-old “Art of Travel” and a reinterpretation of that essential spirit, each Objet Nomade expresses the unique combination of its designer’s creativity and Louis Vuitton’s unparalleled savoir-faire.
This year, Louis Vuitton Objets Nomades turns 10. The line dedicated to lifestyle and home offers a limited edition in collaboration with world-famous designers like Patricia Urquiola, India Mahdavi, Atelier Biagetti, Barber & Osgerby, Campana Brothers, and Raw Edges, to name a few. The new objects will be the protagonists in the Garage Traversi space for the fifth edition of the exhibition to celebrate ten years of the Louis Vuitton Objets Nomades collection in Milan during Milan Design Week 2022.
Louis Vuitton will also bring the Nova House (1972) to Piazza San Babila, a nomadic architecture created by architects Michel Hudrisier and M. Roma for Studio Rochel in Milan. The modular dwelling is characterized by ’70s architecture with a bubble shape covered by a shell of 180 aluminum blades. The nomadic architectures that Louis Vuitton presented during the previous exhibitions are the Temporary Paper Structure by Shigeru Ban (2019), The Hexacube by George Candilis (2018), Futuro House by Matti Suuronen (2017), and La Maison au Bord de L’Eau by Charlotte Perriand (2015).
Each Piece More Unique Than The Next
Among the novelties, there is the Merengue pouf by the Campana brothers in three colours together with Aguacade, an ultra-colourful and modular screen; the Petal Chair by the Marcel Wanders studio with its organic structure similar to a tree; the Cosmic Table by Raw Edges with its innovative carbon fibre base and glass top; the Totem Lumineux by Studio Louis Vuitton, an elegant tower of coloured Murano glass spheres; the new Belt Stool and Belt Loung Chair by Atelier Oï in precious leather; the Signature Armchair & Sofa, with graceful and fluid arches, inspired by terraced fields in China and desert rock formations in the USA, designed by Frank Chou, the latest designer to join the Louis Vuitton Objets Nomades project. In addition, the Italian brand Paola Lenti specifically designed outdoor furniture upholstered in a bright-coloured “Brio” fabric for the exhibition.
