On the occasion of Milan’s Salone del Mobile, Louis Vuitton presents the Chaise Longue designed by Dutch designer Marcel Wanders, the newest addition to the Louis Vuitton Objets Nomades Collection, items inspired by travel, celebrating the encounter between Louis Vuitton’s savoir-faire and design.
The Chaise Longue is a real “relaxation oasis”, foldable and easily transportable.
The three independent modules that compose it, interlock like a puzzle and give life to three different seats: a chaise longue, an armchair or a pouffe. Each module is manufactured in high-tech carbon fibre to be both exceptionally light and strong, and is then upholstered in rich, soft leather on the outside and suede on the inside. The version first shown in Milano will be upholstered in preciously knitted cotton-linen textile on the outside and natural soft leather on the inside. The leather straps that hold the modules together, both when packed and unpacked, are reminiscent of Louis Vuitton’s iconic travel pieces and are made in undyed leather that will patina beautifully with age.
The Lounge Chair is now available in five versions: one in a classic Louis Vuitton caramel tone; the others in exclusive turquoise, black or red leather. The newest edition is a special white edition created on the occasion of the Salone del Mobile as an homage to the city of Milan.
The Chaise Longue Milano, will be showcased and sold in Louis Vuitton Montenapoleone store.
