Last week in Los Angeles, Louis Vuitton celebrated the opening of a special exhibition of its “Objets Nomades” collection at MILK Los Angeles. Marking the house’s first-ever partnership with Frieze LA, guests gathered at the space on N. Cahuenga Boulevard Thursday evening for cocktails and a preview of the presentation, coinciding with the start of the fair.
Launched in 2012, “Objets Nomades” invites renowned designers like Andre Fu, India Mahdavi, Marcel Wanders, and the Campana Brothers to create innovative furniture and design objects for the home, in alignment with the house’s savoir faire codes, with the inspiration of travel. The presentation featured creations like Andrew Kudless’s Swell Wave shelf and the Campana Brothers’s Bulbo chair in curated scenes, intermingling with one another.
At the event, guests like Kudless, Salem Mitchell, and Robert Stillin, enjoyed drinks and a design discussion with Humberto Campana and Architectural Digest’s Mayer Rus. The following morning, the house also hosted names like Lanessa Elrod, Bettina Korek, and Matthew Slotover for a talk with Kudless and design historian and curator Emily King.
