The collection of foldable furniture and travel accessories was first introduced in 2012 as a ten-piece set, and has grown in size to 17 unique items, all of which pay homage Louis Vuitton’s special pieces of the past, such as the its iconic Bed Trunk or Wardrobe Trunk. The collection was designed by a plethora of different designers.
The items on display from November 10th to 28th include the Hammock and the Stool by Atelier Oi, the Cocoon by the Campana Brothers, the Bell Lamp by Barber & Osgerby, the Concertina Table, Chair and Light shade by Raw Edges, the Swing Chair by Patricia Urquiola and the Lounge Chair by Marcel Wanders, which the designer describes as “an unfolding and portable oasis for relaxation. The three individual modules fit into each other like a puzzle, yet when laid out create three distinct solutions—a chaise longue, armchair or pouffe.”
New pieces, which made their debut during Milan Design Week, include the Concertina Collection by Raw Edges, The Valet and the Totem Floral by Damien Langlois-Meurinne and the Ernest Bed and Miller Lamp by Gwenaël Nicolas, both of which were inspired by author Ernest Hemingway’s African travels and which were, according to the artist, ”an opportunity to discover a mysterious world.”
The collection of objets by ten different designers range in price from $4,300 to $81,500 will also be available for retail at the brand’s Beverly Hills flagship boutique, located at 295 N Rodeo Drive.
