Louis Vuitton Presents New Objets Nomades & Les Petits Nomades At Fuori Salone 2018
The first Louis Vuitton Les Petits Nomades collection is innovative and inventive, poetic and elegant: decorative objects for the home by some of the world’s most renowned designers, Humberto & Fernando Campana, Atelier Oï, Patricia Urquiola and Marcel Wanders. Each object of Louis Vuitton Les Petits Nomades is an invitation to take home a unique blend of a designer’s creative vision and the House’s traditional savoir-faire and innovative craftsmanship. These smaller-scale objects, inspired by the designers’ Objets Nomades, Louis Vuitton’s ever-growing collection of limited-edition collectable furniture, are functional and beautiful interpretations of the House’s world of refined and inspiring design.
As an accessible way to share the spirit of Louis Vuitton Les Petits Nomades, this new collection makes perfect gifts. Louis Vuitton Les Petits Nomades colleciton includes the Tropicalist Vase by Humberto & Fernando Campana, the Origami Flower, Leather Rosace Vase and Tray & Flower Field Cushion by Atelier Oï, the Overlay Bowl by Patricia Urquiola and the petit Diamond Mirror by Marcel Wanders. For the first time, internationally renowned architect André Fu unveiled a new Objet Nomade – Ribbon Dance at Palazzo Bocconi.André Fu’s two-person “conversation” chair is a graceful echo of the movements of traditional Asian ribbon dances.
Its pair of seats sit balanced between the elegant curves of the wooden arms covered in Louis Vuitton leather, their shape evoking ideas of infinity and giving the chair its delightfully fluid profile. In collaboration with Louis Vuitton, Marcel Wanders is presenting two Diamond Mirrors (2018) as part of the Objets Nomades collection at Fuori Salone this April. The mirrors have been designed in two sizes and are referred to as the large Diamond Mirror and the petit Diamond Mirror.
They feature a central octagon that is circled by 25 smaller triangular mirrors and use dazzling geometric design to create poetic reflections. Each mirror’s faceted rigid structure is enveloped in Louis Vuitton’s rich Nomade leather and reveals Louis Vuitton’s emblematic contrasting stitching. The Petits Diamond Mirrors are mounted on a heavyweight silvery brass stand with a marble foot. The patterns created by the Diamond Mirror’s facets are reminiscent of the repeated shapes of another one of Marcel Wanders’ Objets Nomades, the leather Diamond Screen.
As the latest additions to the Louis Vuitton Objets Nomades collection, these mirrors playfully combine a rigorous geometrical design with subtle bright reflections revealed through the effect of surrounding light. With their angular beauty, the Diamond Mirrors bring poetry and enlightenment to any room.
