Louis Vuitton showcases its travel-inspired Objets Nomades collection in Hong Kong with a preview of Raw Edges' latest creation and scenography designed by Joyce Wang

Renowned French fashion house Louis Vuitton staged a cinematic display of its Objets Nomades collection of furniture this month in the newly opened former Central Magistracy at the Tai Kwun complex, Central. Using scenography by designer Joyce Wang, the brand chose the occasion to mark its second consecutive showcasing of the collection in Hong Kong.

Launched in 2012, the Louis Vuitton Objets Nomades collection is a homage to Louis Vuitton's roots in making luggage trunks and other travel-related accessories

Inspired by culture and folk craft from around the world, the chair was first previewed in Hong Kong alongside the duo's previous creations such as the Concertinas shade, table and chair, before it is revealed at Fuorisalone at Salone Del Mobile in Milan in April.

Both tables were first unveiled in Design Miami in December last year.Games Room_3Dining Room_2Launched in 2012, Objets Nomades, a homage to Louis Vuitton's roots in making luggage trunks and other travel-related accessories, is an ever-expanding, limited-edition furniture collection imagined by some of the world's most acclaimed designers, including Marcel Wanders, Patricia Urquiola, Humberto and Fernando Campana, and André Fu.
