PARIS — Transporting its heritage into new territory, Louis Vuitton is slated to unveil a collection of foldable furniture and travel accessories at the Design Miami fair this week.
Dubbed Objets Nomades (“nomadic objects,” in English), the 16 items range from a leather hammock with gold-plated fixtures to a futuristic bell lantern with a solar-powered lamp. They are to be unveiled Tuesday at the Louis Vuitton Miami Design District temporary store and showcased and sold there.
