Louis Vuitton To Reveal Collaboration With Frank Gehry At Art Basel

 At this year’s Art Basel Miami Beach, Louis Vuitton will present a selection of the works that legendary Canadian-American architect Frank Gehry has produced during his wide-ranging and longstanding collaboration with the Maison.

The specially designed booth in which the works will be presented embodies his trademark aesthetic and his constant experimentation with forms.

Wood and cardboard models that have always been central to the architect’s design process find their form in the scenography, while five enveloping sail-like mesh structures nod to Gehry’s 2014 window displays for the Maison.

Organized into four themes dear to Frank Gehry – Architecture and Form, Material Exploration, Animals, and his Twisted Box creation for “Celebrating Monogram”– the objects on display include handbags, trunks, perfume bottles, original artworks, preparatory sketches, and architectural models.
