Louis Vuitton unveils an unreleased modular furniture design created by Pierre Paulin in 1972 for Herman Miller.
Cultivating a tradition of innovation, Louis Vuitton participates in a residential project conceived in 1972 by Pierre Paulin for American furniture maker Herman Miller. This long-lost, one-of-a-kind project had never actually been realized.
This year, Louis Vuitton once again revisits functionality by realizing “Playing with Shapes”; a satellite exhibition for the Miami Design District during Art Basel Miami, held December 2nd - 7th.
“One expects from a designer a practical object with, if possible, a touch of poetry and elegance”.
- Pierre Paulin
Avant-garde designer Pierre Paulin anticipated the necessary alliance between a changing world, new techniques and a living space that was conceived as a refuge, or an intimate safe house. From 1969, Pierre Paulin had been in contact with Herman Miller, a furniture company founded by the De Pree family. The artist admired the family’s history, particularly the fact that they had produced works by Charles and Ray Eames and George Nelson. Together, Paulin and the company planned to produce a range of original and revolutionary equipment for residential homes. The rest is history.

The Louis Vuitton Cruise Collection 2015 was photographed by Juergen Teller at the Paris Headquarters and on location in Monaco.
“This Cruise collection goes off the beaten track, explores transformation in clothing. Somehow still, these clothes remain associated with the idea of everyday attire. Always with a timesless will.” These words taken from the Cruise 2015 lookbook, allude to the avid and intemporal casual quality to the collection which was presented earlier this year in the South of France.
It was Nicolas Ghesquière's first Cruise collection as Artistic Director of Louis Vuitton women's collections. The choice to present it on the French Riviera recalls the origins of the Louis Vuitton legend on the Côte d'Azur where the art of travel and luxury were first united.
