Louis Vuitton has decided to celebrate 10 years of the Objets Nomades collection during Milan Design Week in Milan, which closes on Sunday, June 12.
Within an exhibition space specially set up inside the historic Garage Traversi in Piazza San Babila, Louis Vuitton is showcasing, for the first time in Milan, a series of furniture and objects that have built the decades-long history of the Objets Nomades collection, as well as presenting a couple of new items.
The work of 14 designers-including Fernando and Humberto Campana, Atelier Oï, Raw Edges, Frank Chou and Marcel Wanders studio-who have collaborated with the French fashion house over the past 10 years is the centerpiece of the exhibition, which, as part of the traditional quest for nomadic architecture that has characterized previous editions of Milan Design Week, Louis Vuitton is showcasing the Nova House, a nomadic micro-architecture, “a living capsule”, designed in 1972 by architects Michel Hudrisier and M. Rome for Studio Rochel: a steel structure clad in aluminum strips with two bedrooms, a living room, a kitchen and a bathroom.
Over 60 pieces that seamlessly blend together the creativity of their respective designers with Louis Vuitton’s “Art of Travel” philosophy.
The Louis Vuitton Objets Nomades collection and Nova House will be on display at Garage Traversi in Milan’s Piazza San Babila until Sunday, June 12.
