Louis Vuitton has transformed Pedder Building into its own private salon, replete with their celebrated Objets Nomades collection. The occasion also marks the international launch of the brand’s latest Objet Nomade — Lanterns, intricately weaved lamps that are designed by design duo Zanellato/ Bortotto.
The grand showcase is a labour of love by local scenographer and interior designer Nelson Chow. Set over two floors, the exhibition brought us into the world of Louis Vuitton, where existing iconic pieces are also displayed in a new light for visitors to see, touch and feel.
Since 2012, the Louis Vuitton Objets Nomades collection has put the skills of international designers such as Atelier Oi, Atelier Biagetti, the Campana Brothers, Andre Fu, Raw Edges and Tokujin Yoshikoka to the test. Each designer must create objects of art that are rooted in Louis Vuitton’s vision of travel, embodying the brand’s design codes and savoir-faire. From hammocks to foldable stools and lounge chairs, to leather screens and sofas that can be transformed into smaller furniture pieces, the collection showcases the House’s attention to complex craftsmanship and creative innovation.
Showing their support at the opening of the exhibition were stars such as Karena Lam, Grace Chan, Sham Yuet, Sham Yet and Stephanie Au. Other renowned guests also include Adrian Cheng, Andre Fu, Michelle Cheng, Yen Lo, Alan Lo, Esther Sham, Queenie Law and more.
The Louis Vuitton Objets Nomades 2021 exhibition runs from now until April 8th, 2021 by private appointment.
