Lamp by Nendo
Inspired by a sheet of leather he saw at Louis Vuitton’s Asnières workshops, Oki Sato of design studio Nendo created his Lamp: a leather shade backlit by LED bulbs, which disguises its craft in a cloak of apparent simplicity.
Louis Vuitton has been synonymous with the Art of Travel since it was founded in 1854. It is a longstanding spirit of sophistication and unlimited possibilities that is now to be found at the heart of the Objets Nomades.
From a hammock to a foldable stool in precious “Nomade” leather, a travel desk to a Maracatu, Objets Nomades pay homage to the House’s special orders of the past – such as the iconic Bed-Trunk or Stokowski Trunk – and add a defiantly contemporary spirit. Sharing a sense of instinctiveness, desire and pleasure the Objets Nomades continue Louis Vuitton’s tradition of offering its customers new visions of how to travel.
