Among the many new artworks, fashion collections, real estate and more unveiled at the creative extravaganza that is Art Basel Miami, Parisian house Louis Vuitton not-so-quietly revealed two new pieces from its “Objets Nomades” furniture collection. One of which is a real gem.
The first new item, the Blossom Stool, was designed by Tokujin Yoshioka, is made of wood and leather and was inspired by Louis Vuitton’s signature patterned-flower petal monogram. There’s also a glossier metal version made of a gilded brass.
The real star of the show, however, is the “Fur Cocoon.” Designed by brothers Fernando and Humberto Campana, it’s an updated version of the label’s classic “Cocoon” and is made of vacuum-molded fiberglass covered in lambskin. It swings from the ceiling using a gilded steel and brass hook.
The Blossom Stool and Fur Cocoon will be displayed at Art Basel Miami from November 30 until December 4, and are available for purchase (prices are available upon request only — they won’t be cheap) during the design fair. If you can’t make it, check out the pictures from Louis Vuitton’s installation, as well the full Objets Nomades collection above.
