The worlds of design, art, and fashion often commingle, showcasing fearless creativity, a myriad of global influences, and innovation at its best. The latest example? Luxury fashion retailer Louis Vuitton is partnering with Frieze Los Angeles—the star-studded contemporary art fair that runs through February 16—on a special off-site exhibition of its Objets Nomades collection.
Louis Vuitton launched Objets Nomades in 2012, inviting design stars to dream up travel-inspired furniture and one-of-a-kind decorative accents that pay homage to the brand’s storied past. Over the years, the striking creations have celebrated the beauty of craftmanship and fine materials. Items in the collection have run the gamut from futuristic seating to foldable furniture, and are either designated as experimental prototypes or made available for purchase in limited quantities. This year’s exhibition marks the first time the Campana brothers’ sculptural Bomboca Sofa, which was unveiled during the 2017 Objets Nomades event in Miami, will be on display in a trendy pink hue.
Along with showcasing the latest Objets Nomades collection, Louis Vuitton will be hosting engaging discussions with prominent figures in the art and design worlds. For instance, San Francisco-based architect Andrew Kudless, Louis Vuitton’s very first American Objets Nomades designer, will be in conversation with Emily King, a design historian and curator.
“I’m delighted to be at LV x Frieze this year to celebrate the Objets Nomades Collection and my recent addition to it,” says Kudless, who created two wooden bookshelves for the collection. “I’m incredibly honored to be the first American designer in the collection and excited to work with Louis Vuitton on bringing the shelf to life. Their commitment to design, craftsmanship, and exquisite materials is unparalleled.”
The event will be open to the public until Sunday, February 16. It will be held at
Milk Studios Los Angeles, Studio 6, at 855 N Cahuenga Boulevard. Follow #lvobjetsnomades on Instagram for updates.
