106 In 2012, Louis Vuitton released its limited-edition Objets Nomades furniture designed by influential international artists. The collection now includes 25 pieces, ranging from a luxe leather hammock to a portable lounge chair. The travel-inspired offerings have been on tour at LV boutiques worldwide, and debut this month at Houston's Galleria store for a limited time; it's the collection's only stop in Texas. One particularly vivid example is the electrifying Cocoon chair, designed by São Paulo-based brothers Fernando and Humberto Campana, who have works in the collections of MoMA and other museums. Fashioned of perforated vacuum-molded fiberglass — yes, surfboard material — it's clothed with an outer layer of calfskin and quilted leather within. In another stunning work, the quatrefoil motif and the petals of Louis Vuitton Monograms inform the wood-and-leather Blossom stool, designed by Japanese designer/artist Tokujin Yoshioka.
