Louis Vuitton collaborated in a residential project conceived in 1972 by Pierre Paulin for American furniture maker Herman Miller. Now, the maison is unveiling the modular furniture designs for the project and showcasing its spirit of innovation. Paulin, an avant-garde designer, had envisioned a living space conceived as a refuge. La Maquette, now a part of the Centre Pompidou's collections, consists of six levels of modular living. Each level forms a coherent yet free living space. The ground level has a footprint that spans the ensemble of basic modules the occupant may assemble or disassemble to create a personal living space depending on the number of rooms desired, furniture, chairs and family needs. The furniture pieces come in different shapes and contribute to the quest for "gestures that are powerful and balanced".
