    • THE CHAISE LONGUE BY MARCEL WANDERS IS THE NEW OBJECT NOMAD - Louis Vuitton Art & Travel NEWS
    On the occasion of Milan’s Salone del Mobile, Louis Vuitton presents the Chaise Longue designed by Dutch designer Marcel Wanders, the newest addition to the Louis Vuitton Objets Nomades Collection.

    The Chaise Longue is a real “relaxation oasis”, foldable and easily transportable.
    The three independent modules that compose it, interlock like a puzzle and give life to three different seats: a chaise longue, an armchair or a pouffe. Each module is manufactured in high-tech carbon fibre to be both exceptionally light and strong, and is then upholstered in rich, soft leather on the outside and suede on the inside. The version first shown in Milano will be upholstered in preciously knitted cotton-linen textile on the outside and natural soft leather on the inside. The leather straps that hold the modules together, both when packed and unpacked, are reminiscent of Louis Vuitton’s iconic travel pieces and are made in undyed leather that will patina beautifully with age.

    The Chaise Longue can be ordered through the service Made To Order in the preferred colour, which are classic calfskin, white or red. The Chaise Longue will be showcased and sold in Louis Vuitton Montenapoleone and Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II stores from April 12th to 17th during the store hours 10:00 am to 08:30 pm.

    Curated by Olivier Saillard, it retraces Louis Vuitton’s great journey from 1854 till today, through archives of the Family’s founding members to those who create the Louis Vuitton of today.

    Since the end of the 19th century, the House has always maintained strong ties with Japan. From the mon (family crest) inspirations of the Monogram canvas, to the long list of renowned Japanese clients such as the political leader Taisuke Itagaki, and the collaborations with Japanese contemporary artists from Murakami to Kusama.

    “Louis Vuitton has always been at the forefront of creation and innovation, today live over a century ago. Constantly taking inspiration from our past we craft the trends of today. Olivier Saillard has immersed himself in the Louis Vuitton archives to decode its secrets. He delivers a fresh vision of our past, present and future.” says Michael Burke, CEO of Louis Vuitton.

    The exhibition will be held in a bespoke structure in Kojimachi, the neighbourhood in Tokyo, where in 1978 Louis Vuitton opened its first store in Japan.
