Patricia Urquiola’s Swing Chair for Louis Vuitton Objets Nomades
Part of the ‘Objets Nomades’ collection for Louis Vuitton, Particia Urquiola’s Swing Chair has style. This folding piece of luxury travel kit embodies the founding spirit of Louis Vuitton – how to make travel more comfortable for the elite and well-heeled (and if you think I’m kidding, try a price tag of $20,000+). This series is a collection of foldable furniture and travel accessories by 11 notable designers. The Spanish born Urquiola, now based in Milan, is famous for making the old fashioned look trendy again: witness her elegant swing chair. Made from nylon rope, she uses leather cushions for the perfect splash of rich color. And the chair has gold-plated hooks. It was inspired by a handbag! Two hooks support this superior woven mesh throwback to the hammock chairs of the 70s. And doesn’t it look so inviting? Can’t you just imagine being curled up with a book in this chair on a seaside deck somewhere?
