Launched in 2012, Louis Vuitton Objets Nomades is an ever-expanding collection of limited-edition, collectable furniture by renowned designers, which is inspired by the House’s historic Art of Travel, while reinterpreting its essential spirit.
The Bomboca Sofa, named after sweets served at weddings and children’s parties in Brazil and meaning “very good”, is a modular piece that was originally inspired by cloud shapes and colourful round sea apples. The result is like a puzzle in which eight removable cushions are arranged in a rigid, leather-covered shell.
Other Objets Nomades making their Design Miami/ 2017 debut include the pieces created by Atelier Oï such as the Swing Boat, the Belt Chair and the Spiral Lamp with its twisted straps of leather. Also presented are Patricia Urquiola’s Palaver Chair in a mix of wood and woven sheets of perforated leather, India Mahdavi’s Talisman Table in leather marquetry, and Marcel Wanders’ rocking Lune Chair and leather Diamond Screen.
A selection of Objets Nomades will also be visible at the Louis Vuitton Miami Design District Store.
