Objets Nomades

Objets Nomades Louis VuittonHave you heard about the Objets Nomades collection yet? Well we didn’t until the other day, when we found this colorful product asking ourselves what it could be? After some research we found out it is a hanging travel cabinet called Maracatu, designed by the brothers Humberto and Fernando Campana made from leather offcuts from Louis Vuitton workshops. “Each one is different,” says Fernando Campana at the launch in Miami. “We named them after the fruits of Brazil – each one has the name of a fruit, because the first idea was that it would be like a fruit hanging from a tree. The name Maracatu comes from a dance, a ritual dance from Brazil,” added Humberto Campana. “They use wigs and clothes with stripes of cloth, and they twist to make this movement.” Inside the travel cabinet are shelves and a light, and it also comes in a more minimal brown leather version without the swinging tassels. International designers such as Christian Liaigre, Edward Barber, Jay Osgerby, and Oki Sato of Nendo, just to name some of them, created the 16-piece travel collection.
