Objets Nomades by Louis Vuitton at Palazzo Serbelloni in Milan

Objets Nomades 2019

Louis Vuitton shows its latest ‘Objets Nomades’ collection in six spaces at the Palazzo Serbelloni in Milan during Milan Design Week 2019. “Since the launch in 2012, the Louis Vuitton Objets Nomades collection has grown into a collection forty-five limited-edition travel-inspired objects imagined by some of the world’s most renowned designers.”

Discotheque

Maybe it’s us, at Mimi Berlin, but this presentation felt like we were visiting one big and very luxurious discotheque in the 1980s. The tone was set at the entrance; a winding stairwell, completely lit in blue with loud pumping music in our eardrums. Heavenly!

The designs for ‘Objets Nomades’ all have in common that they are inspired by travel furniture. The newest design, the Anemona table by Atelier Biagetti, made sure we were travelling in our minds into the deep sea.

Campana Jungle

The first room we entered is filled with designs by the Campana brothers. A Jungle themed-room; The jungle seen in a tropical, colorful and cartoonesk way. Sofa’s and hanging chairs reminiscent of fruit, sided by multicolored palm-leaves in a sparsely lit space. That sounds laim but this furniture is SO high-end, well made and pretty that it’s absolutely not!

Marcel Wanders

New designs by Marcel Wanders are the Diamond sofa and chair and the Venezia lamp

Bell Lamp

The largest room at the Palazzo Serbelloni has the calmest vibe. The ceiling is covered in hunderds of Bell Lamps made from paper. The original Bell lamp is made in leather and (Murano) glass and is designed by Barber & Osgerby for the 2012 Objet Nomades collection, the first edition.

By the way. It seems to us that the furniture produced by Louis Vuitton used to be foldable or just much smaller in size, what do you think? See previous collections on this by clicking here

Raw Edges

The last room, a white one with mirrors, is filled with the Dolls Chairs, designed by Raw Edges, all upholstered differently. Again, accompanied by loud and danceable music. See more of this room in the video below.

Honestly, we, at Mimi Berlin, had a blast with all this glittery shine and up-scale glamour!

Window Shopping with Mimi Berlin in Milan during Designweek 2019

Window Shopping Fashionfix

Window shopping in Milan is one of Mimi’s greatest pleasures. This week is all about furniture and industrial design ’cause it’s Milan Design Week #mdw19, but we do need our fashionfix so we took a stroll along the shop windows of the high-end fashion brands in the area around the Via Montenapoleone. Below some pictures we made for y’all, who don’t have the time to go shopping for fashion design.

From Industrial to Discotheque to Safari

From the top of our heads (and thus in a nutshell) we could not help but spot the following ‘trends’. ‘Discotheque’ with neon colors, hologram, shine and glitter in silver, gold and bright colors. ‘Industrial’ with neon lights, concrete, silver detailing and transparency or plastic. On the ‘Safari’ side of the ‘shop-window-spectrum’ in Milan: animals, in particular the giraffe, monkeys and birds. Furthermore we’ve seen some tie-dye, at Prada and Stella McCartney only, and of course the color pink in all kinds of romantic shades.

Pink

Shop windows with a very romantic and girlie vibe, in pink: from pastel to shocking. Pink. The larger-than-life easter egg is made by Cova
