Since 2012, french fashion house louis vuitton has crafted the ‘objets nomades’ collection, keeping alive their long tradition of travel objects. for this year’s milan design week, india mahdavi and tokujin yoshioka have joined some of the world’s most renowned designers to imagine the stunning items, adding ten new pieces to the set.

‘The limited editions and experimental prototypes that make up the objets nomads collection all pay homage to the house’s special orders of the past — such as the iconic bed trunk produced in 1874 for french explorer pierre savorgnan de brazzaville — and add the defiantly contemporary visions of creative designers from around the world: atelier oï, maarten baas, barber and osgerby, the campagna brothers, damien langlois-meurinne, nendo, gwenaël nicolas, raw edges, patricia urquiola, marcel wanders, and most recently, india mahdavi and tokujin yoshioka.’ – louis vuitton

Comprised of 25 pieces, the objets nomads collection sees, among others, a hammock, a deckchair, swing chairs, and a foldable stool. the collaboration between louis vuitton and the designers brings together the company’s artisans with the ideas of the creatives, mixing their know-how with experimentation. each project interprets the idea of travel in their own way, embodying the beauty of fine materials, the possibility of forms and the carefully balanced proportions highlighted by meticulous craftsmanship and attention to detail.

Continuing with their exploration of new territories and ideas of travel, the new 10 objets nomads include a playful sofa by the campana brothers, inspired by clouds and the shell botticelli painted for venus; atelier oï’s chair with repurposed straps resembling leather belts; marcel wander’s malletage-leather rocking chair; and india mahdavi’s nomads side table with leather marquetry that references talisman aesthetics.
