The Objets Nomades

Explore Louis Vuitton’s Objets Nomades, a collection of travel-inspired furniture and objects made in collaboration with internationally renowned designers.

Introduction

Since 2012, Louis Vuitton has invited celebrated designers from around the world to imagine experimental yet functional furniture pieces and design objects for the Objets Nomades Collection. From a hammock to a foldable stool, an armchair to a room screen, each limited-edition object pushes and surpasses the boundaries of leather to showcase the Maison’s attention to complex craftsmanship and creative innovation. The collection simultaneously pays homage to Louis Vuitton's special orders of the past – such as the iconic Bed Trunk produced in 1874 for French explorer Pierre Savorgnan de Brazza – while it celebrates the defiantly contemporary visions of a diverse group of international designers.
