About the project

“The Louis Vuitton trunk is reimagined as a piece of architecture inspired by House N. The simple volume of the trunk has been re-surfaced to create an impression of interiority. By applying a white surface and leaving only a few ‘openings’ the previously simple and flat box achieves depth and volume. This manipulated object is a celebration of the ability of the Louis Vuitton brand to transform simple volumes into icons.”
