VUITTON WORLD BY STEVEN HEMPEL IT IS A L ouis Vuitton continued its presence at Milan's Salone del Mobile, adding five new objects while showcasing the entire Objets Nomades collection at Garage Traversi. The location was originally designed by architect Giuseppe De Min in 1939 and reimagined as a landmark modernist space in the heart of the city by Mario Bellini. While Objets Nomades works are decidedly highbrow, there's an honesty and sincerity about the project that blends some of the design world's finest minds with the marketing might and savoir faire of Vuitton. Debuts include extensions of Atelier Oi's Belt chair with the introduction of a lounge chair, side, and bar stool. The Campana Brothers, favorites of the house, return with Bomboca, a cloud- like modular sofa of fabric-covered cushions with hard leather shell that reminds us of earlier work with Edra. Raw Edges shows the techie side of design with innovative indoor and outdoor versions of the Cosmic table; the base, constructed of carbon fiber, has been meticulously covered in leather by Vuitton artisans, while the outdoor version has an enameled base.
