Louis Vuitton in Residence at Tatler House
This autumn, Tatler debuted Tatler House Hong Kong—an invite-only VIP venue tucked away inside a sprawling double-penthouse space in The Upper House at Admiralty. Now, Tatler has partnered with Louis Vuitton, bringing select pieces from the luxury fashion house's latest Objets Nomades collection as well as special-edition hard-sided travel cases into Tatler House for a limited time only—as part of the clubhouse's ever-changing, evolving thematic ambience and decor.
Since its launch in 2012, Louis Vuitton’s Objets Nomades collection of furniture and homeware, all inspired by travel, has consistently produced pieces that blur the line between art and furniture. From the elegant lines of the Ribbon Dance sofa by André Fu to the whimsical Cocoon hanging chair by Fernando and Humberto Campana, Objets Nomades challenges our perceptions of what a sofa, chair and table should look like.
This year, Louis Vuitton showcased its latest creations at the Frieze Los Angeles art fair in February, which includes the Swell Wave shelf by Andrew Kudless, the first American designer to contribute to Objets Nomades. Made from light polished oak held by straps of red leather, the lines of the Swell Wave shelf are based on the look of rocks that have been chiseled away by wind and rain over time.
