Blossom Stool by Tokujin Yoshioka

Tokujin Yoshioka’s Blossom Stool is the newest standout addition to Objets Nomade. Now comprising 16 foldable, modular and portable objects since its launch in 2013, the collection is a pioneering crossover between fashion and product design that Louis Vuitton first launched in 2013.

The seat of the Blossom Stool is an articulation of the brand’s iconic four-petal monogram. The folding structure ensures absolute functionality, and the organic form makes for an indispensable accessory. “I always try to invent something beyond forms,” said Yoshioka. The Japanese designer has established a reputation for work that challenges the perceptions by seemingly defying the laws of nature. By emphasising the wood and leather techniques in the Blossom Stool, he wanted to highlight the timelessness and art of the brand’s exemplary craftsmanship. “I thought I would like to re-interpret the philosophy of Louis Vuitton to create a work which travels through the time of history and future with my expression and techniques, and express the new journey through time,” Yoshioka went on. A gilded metallic edition is available, as well as a soft leather edition in either white or black.
