MIAMI, Dec 5 — On the occasion of the major US design event, Design Miami, set to run from December 5 to 9, Louis Vuitton has added three new pieces to its Objets Nomades collection.

For its latest offering at the trade fair, the French luxury goods house has called on designers and artists from the Atelier Biagetti, the Atelier Oï and designer Tokujin Yoshioka.

This is Vuitton's first collaboration with the Italians of Atelier Biagetti, who have come to the fair with the “Anemona” table. With its rippling base, the table inspired by the movement of water is covered in natural beige leather with an electric blue lacquer interior and an oval glass top. The piece pays homage to the Adriatic Sea, which is not far from the two designers' home city of Ravenna, and the extravagant floating costumes at the La Scala opera house in Milan, where they live and work.

The Atelier Oi is also presenting an oval glass-topped table, with criss-crossed American walnut legs that are bound together with blue leather straps. The “Serpentine,” as it is dubbed, evokes the “complex and fluid movement of traditional dance.”
