Iconic luxury brands including Louis Vuitton, Dior, and Fendi showcased their latest designs this month as part of Milan Design Week 2019.
From 8-14 April, the world-renowned design fair hosted the industry’s most innovative and ambitious designers, and Moët Hennessey Louis Vuitton’s (LVMH) maisons were in attendance.
Maisons Louis Vuitton, Fendi, Loewe, RIMOWA, Bvlgari, and Dior made exhibitions at the event.
Louis Vuitton unveiled the 10 newest editions to its Objets Nomades collection, now counting 45 limited-edition pieces inspired by travel and conceived by international designers such as Barber & Osgerby and André Fu. The new objects include the spectacular Anemona glass-topped dining table whose undulating base is covered with soft natural leather, created by Milan-based Atelier Biagetti.
Building on its successful debut last year at the design week, Bvlgari took over a 1,000 sqm. space in the heart of the Indro Montanelli public gardens, displaying two installations that explore the connections between design, science, and art. Our favourite installation at the event was spectacular Ulrico Hoepli Planetarium featured the work of Argentine artist Tomás Saraceno.
At the Salone del Mobile furniture fair in Milan, Dior Maison unveiled 14 exclusive creations designed by Dimore Studio. This collection combines expertise in alloying different metals – gold, silver and bronze – with the interplay of Plexiglas and natural woven rattan, celebrating cannage: the iconic code of Maison Dior.
One of our favourite designs from the LVMH brands was RIMOWA teaming up with contemporary art magazine and creative studio KALEIDOSCOPE for multi-platform project: a short film, an installation and a print publication.
