Joyce Wang on Designing Louis Vuitton’s Objets Nomades Exhibition

Earlier this year, our editor-in-chief hosted an insightful discussion with the acclaimed designer to find out more about the inspiration and process behind the exhibition’s magical scenography

‘Trust award-winning Hong Kong interior designer Joyce Wang to devise a magical exhibition for Louis Vuitton’s 2019 Objets Nomades exhibition. Within the former Central Magistracy at Tai Kwun — a heritage and arts complex on the site of Hong Kong’s former Central Police Station — Wang presented the iconic French fashion brand’s latest collection of limited-edition furniture, lighting and home accessories in a building-within-a-building, using translucent mesh walls to create rooms and transform the historic building into a surreal grand mansion. Visitors wandered under archways and through interconnected rooms — from a dining room and living room to a study and, rather unexpectedly, even a virtual swimming pool — that provided a cinematic backdrop for the collection of eye-catchingly unique objets.’
