Japanese designer Tokujin Yoshioka has collaborated with Louis Vuitton to create a four-petal Blossom stool for objects nomades exhibition at design Miami 2016. The elegant furniture piece reinterprets the designer brand’s iconic monogram of petals, by reshaping the silhouette to form a delicate overlapping structure.
French fashion company Louis Vuitton started their ‘objets nomades collection’, with the idea of keeping alive their long tradition of traveling objects. In order to create the set comprised of 25 pieces, they have collaborated with renowned designers from around the world, bringing together the company’s artisans with the ideas of the creatives, mixing their know-how with experimentation.
“NEITHER SHAPE NOR FUNCTION. I ALWAYS TRY TO INVENT SOMETHING BEYOND FORMS. I WANTED TO CREATE SOMETHING ICONIC WHICH STRONGLY SYMBOLISES THE PHILOSOPHY OF LOUIS VUITTON, AND I CREATED AN OBJECT THAT IS UNIVERSAL AND TIMELESS.” Tokujin Yoshioka
Made of noble materials such as metal, brass, leather or wood, the purpose of this original Blossom Stool, is to create a universal and timeless object in line with the brand’s philosophy. This stool also pays homage to the luxury aesthetic and high level of craftsmanship associated with Louis Vuitton.
The seat of the Blossom Stool is an articulation of the brand’s iconic four-petal monogram. The folding structure ensures absolute functionality, and the organic form makes for an indispensable accessory.
Foldable furniture, mobile lamps and travel accessories are at the heart of Louis Vuitton’s unique collection of nomad objects. To complete this list, new objects have recently been presented, including the Blossom stool by Tokujin Yoshioka.
