Frank Chou, Raw Edges, and More Add to Louis Vuitton Objets Nomades

For nearly a decade, Louis Vuitton’s Objets Nomades collection has been inviting designers from around the world to create inventive furniture and objects for the home, inspired by the maison’s roots in travel. For the occasion of Miami Art Week, the house has joined in partnership with the Miami Design District to share a series of presentations showcasing the collection of functional objects, which have been designed by the likes of Fernando and Humberto Campana, André Fu, Marcel Wanders studio, Raw Edges, and India Madavi.

Highlights from the collection are on view in the Design District’s Louis Vuitton women’s store, where an enveloping environment by Patricia Urquiola fills the entirety of the third level. There, around 40 of the captivating Objets Nomades pieces fill a desert-hued interior landscape, including five brand-new designs and updates to existing objects, along with collection classics (like Barber Osgerby’s Bell lamps) incorporated into the boutique’s retail displays.

“The design is a surreal presentation of formations and fossil-like structures that bloom together with the Objets Nomades collection,” said Urquiola. “Within this landscape, clusters grow alongside imaginary desert plants to create this lush desert in which mineral and plant, soft and hard co-exist.”

Seen for the first time in Miami at a cocktail preview on Wednesday evening, Urquiola’s installation features the new hanging Merengue fixtures by the Campana brothers, the elegant Petal chair from Marcel Wanders Studio, Raw Edge’s Cosmic table, the Murano glass Totem Lumineux by Studio Louis Vuitton, and Frank Chou’s Objets Nomades debut—the Signature armchair and sofa, which look to the lines of nature to inform their gravity-defying shapes. Meanwhile, refreshed designs like a new take on the Campana brothers’s Cocoon chair and a fresh version of Urquiola’s Swing chair can be found, as well as designs by Paola Lenti found on the location’s rooftop terrace.

This week, the luxury house also opened its menswear store in the Design District—the second standalone Louis Vuitton men’s store in the world. Outfitted elegantly with the Objets Nomades in mind, the façade looks to Marcel Wanders studio’s 2017 Diamond screen with an intricate all-over white diamond lattice, while its interiors include objects like Atelier Oï’s Spiral Lamp. Also encompassed in the maison’s programming is a digital partnership with Design Miami/, which allows patrons to easily purchase the Objets Nomades collection through the fair’s online marketplace.
