Louis Vuitton's Foldable Furniture
Anyone who knows anything about Louis Vuitton's legacy can tell you that travel accessories have always been on the agenda. But with the Objets Nomades series, the company is taking stylish travel to a whole new level. Let's put it this way — under normal circumstances, you probably wouldn't plan on packing a table, a lamp, a hammock, and a chair on a trip, but in light of the latest Louis V. developments, one might well reconsider those very items when preparing for a journey. The reason? All of the aforementioned Objets Nomades items are foldable.
That's right, Louis Vuitton has enlisted the talents of a host of daring designers in order to answer the age-old travelers' question, "How do I take this on the plane/ship/train with me?" Take a turn in Atelier Oi's $32,000 leather-and-gold hammock, for instance, Christian Liaigre’s $34,900 maple-and-leather travel desk, or perhaps Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby's $3,350 Bell Lamp just for starters, and see where it leads.
