A special Louis Vuitton exhibit to debut for the Miami Design District

A special Louis Vuitton exhibit to debut for the Miami Design District

Harks back to the 70s

Louis Vuitton is planning to present Pierre Paulin and Herman Miller’s long-lost, unrealised project, which the French designer and American furniture manufacturer thought up in 1972

Conceived as a satellite exhibition for the Miami Design District, a new installation is scheduled for display from December 2 for five days this year. Pierre Paulin shot to stardom in the 50s and 60s, famous for his innovative seating options such as the 'Mushroom' chair and the 'Ribbon' chair, and the Vuitton exhibit is said to coincide with Nadine Descendre's book Pierre Paulin: l'homme et l'oeuvre, a 240-page piece on Paulin's life and work.

Louis Vuitton exhibit

Vuitton continues its tradition of spreading the word about France's pioneering figures in architecture and design. In 2013, the luxury group unveiled Charlotte Perriand's La maison au bord de l'eau, a U-shaped beach house conceived in 1934 yet never realised until then, also in Miami.
