Louis Vuitton was originally founded in 1854 in Paris as a specialist leather trunk and travel bag producer. In tribute to this historical craft, last December the legendary fashion house unveiled an unusual, premium travel collection titled Objets Nomades.
With the help of some of the world’s most talented object designers, 16 pieces have been curated and meticulously designed and crafted to make globe trekking a lot more luxurious.
The pieces reference Louis Vuitton and his son Georges’ original bespoke travel commissions from the 19th Century, such as a trunk replete with a folding horsehair mattress for a trip to the Congo, or a trunk with a pull-out desk and a typewriter station. This bespoke service has been reinterpreted for the 21st Century to create a selection of collectible design items that are both beautiful in their form yet also functional in their design.

My favorites are the swing chair by Patricia Urquiloa and the hammock by Atelier Oi. Which one is yours ?
