    Louis Vuitton adds a new edition to its Travel Book series devoted to Seoul by Icinori.

    Stopping over in Seoul with design duo Icinori. The Louis Vuitton Travel Book series invites renowned artists and promising young talents to tell stories of places they have visited, depicting each place’s varied architecture and special light, and recording the passing days and the lives of its people. For the new edition on Seoul, Mayumi Otero and Raphaël Urwiller bring their breath-taking attention to detail to the bustling South Korean capital.

    The Japanese-sounding name  "doesn’t mean anything in particular", in the words of the couple behind it. Icinori is a studio of design, visual art, screen printing, and publishing. The French-Spanish-Japanese Mayumi Otero and the French Raphaël Urwiller met in school at the Ecole Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs of Strasbourg where they founded Icinori in 2007 while still students. Since then, as work and life partners, they have been traveling, exploring, observing, illustrating, and drawing together, displaying the sort of meticulousness that typifies only the most passionate of artists.

    Louis Vuitton adds a new edition to its Travel Book series devoted to Los Angeles by Javier Mariscal.  

    Next stop Los Angeles, through the eyes of Javier Mariscal. The Louis Vuitton Travel Book series invites renowned artists and promising young talents to tell stories of places they have visited, depicting each place’s varied architecture and special light, and recording the passing days and the lives of its people. For the new edition on Los Angeles, the Spanish artist Javier Mariscal brings his edgy and unbridled style to the sprawling Californian city.

    A graphic designer, illustrator, filmmaker, painter, sculptor and ceramist, Javier Mariscal loves to challenge everything he encounters: his motto is "hay que romper con todo" (you have to break with everything). As a dyslexic child, he was obsessed with drawing from a very early age and fascinated by letters and typography, a passion that would have a substantial influence on his work.

  • OBJETS NOMADES AT FUORISALONE 2019 IN MILAN

    Louis Vuitton's Objets Nomades collection is exclusively presented at Palazzo Serbelloni in Milan during Fuorisalone 2019.

    Since its launch in 2012, the Louis Vuitton Objets Nomades has grown into a collection forty-five limited-edition travel-inspired objects imagined by some of the world's most renowned designers: Barber & Osgerby, Campana Brothers, André Fu, Damien Langlois-Meurinne, Nendo, Gwenaël Nicolas, Raw Edges, Patricia Urquiola, Marcel Wanders, India Mahdavi, Tokujin Yoshioka, and, most recently, Atelier Biagetti and Zanellato/Bortotto. Louis Vuitton has unveiled the latest additions to the collection at the Palazzo Serbelloni in Milan during Fuorisalone 2019.

    Among the new pieces is Anemona by Milan-based Atelier Biagetti, which is a remarkable, glass-topped dining table with undulating base covered in soft beige leather. The italian duo Zanellato/Bortotto makes its debut with Mandala, a tripartite screen of intricately woven leather inspired by nomadic craftsmanship. A new selection of inventive, poetic work from established Objets Nomades designers includes the Campana Brothers' Bulbo, a cozy seat that transports the sitter in a cocoon-like tropical flower of leather and soft fabric. The duo Raw Edges’ Dolls are a set of joyously playful, endlessly customizable chairs that, like traditional Louis Vuitton trunks, can be hand-painted with unique designs. Marcel Wanders enriches the collection with four new objects: the beguiling pair of Diamond Sofa and Armchair with their bases of intertwined ash and rich leather upholstery; Venezia, a lamp inspired by traditional Venetian lanterns; and Diamond Vase, made of red, handblown Murano glass. India Mahdavi brings her lacquered Talisman tray, with its “benevolent eye” design, while Tokujin Yoshioka presents the Monogram pattern-inspired Blossom Vase, made of heavy, handcrafted Murano glass.
