Discover Louis Vuitton's Latest Objets Nomades Collection In Hong Kong
From 23rd to 31st March, travel connoisseurs, art aficionados and design enthusiasts alike will savour the opportunity to take in the collection exclusively at the Central Magistracy, located within the Tai Kwun complex. Built in 1914, the former Central Magistracy is the oldest building on the site of the cultural hub and the Louis Vuitton Objets Nomades collection will mark the first event to be held at this historic building. Its grand colonial architecture makes the edifice an apt locale for a collection that celebrates heritage, travel and design.
With contributions from renowned designers including Atelier Bagietti, Atelier Oï, André Fu, the Campana Brothers, Raw Edges and Tokujin Yoshioka, the maison has sought to display the special collection in a fashion as elaborate as the pieces themselves.
Distinct pieces from this year’s Objets Nomades include Atelier Oï’s complex, free-flowing Serpentine Table, conceived through a careful balance of weight and tension under a bevelled glass top, and Atelier Bagietti’s eye-catching Anemona Table, with its undulating leather base, mimicking the beauty and movement of the sea.
Further weaving the distinct savoir-faire nature of the Objets Nomades experience with its host city, Louis Vuitton has commissioned internationally acclaimed designer Joyce Wang and her studio to create a scenography involving each piece of the entire collection.
The theatre-scale production will see Wang build elaborate, awe-inspiring scenes around each Objet, leveraging the building’s expansive rooms and private chambers to complement each equally elaborate piece.
Visitors can expect over-the-top, fully immersive luxury that is also comfortably familiar. Wang’s intent is to make each scene feel like “home”, where each Objet becomes the focal point of a scene that conveys a new but recognisable feeling—that feeling of home. Known for her cinematic interiors, visitors can prepare for a showcase that is visually and physically arresting yet unusually familiar, meant to provoke and broaden the imagination and one’s notions of home.
In addition to being the first public opening of the Central Magistracy building, the Objets Nomades collection will also be marked by a preview of the Objet Nomade from award-winning design duo Raw Edges, who will unveil their delightfully bright and folksy Object in Hong Kong before revealing it to international press at Fuorisalone in April.
