For those of us still stuck armchair traveling, Louis Vuitton’s long tradition of beautifully crafted travel-inspired products gives us something to dream about. Over 160 years after Louis Vuitton began exploring new ideas around travel, the Objets Nomades collection proves the brand still has a sense of adventure. Paying homage to the brand’s designs of the past and today, and created by renowned designers, the stunning Objets Nomades and Petits Nomades collections are swoon worthy. Here’s one of our faves.
This lantern—from the Treviso, Italy-based design duo Zanellato/Bortotto—continues the duos’ reinterpretation of artisanal techniques, with a blown glass light dome and honeycomb-patterned cage of interwoven leather strips inspired by beehives. It puts off a warm, romantic glow when lit, but it’s a modern rechargeable LED light. Details were inspired by Louis Vuitton handbags, including the carrying strap and the three brass “feet,” that protect the leather base. The lanterns are made to be used indoors, but they make us think of long fall nights cuddling under the stars.
