Hermès has unveiled a stunning new collection of furniture, fabrics and wallpapers.
With Les Nécessaires d’Hermès, which debuted at this year’s Salone del Mobile, French designer Philippe Nigro brings a contemporary view on the Hermès luxury lifestyle. Here is a perfect Christmas gift for those who are comfortable to sign multi-million dollar deals and also those who are keen to carry their home office in a trunk. Hermès’ $60,000 Coffre à Lutrin is actually a folding desk that closes up in to a trunk like piece of furniture.
Though such a multipurpose design makes it ideal for any space narrow work area, this creation from Hermès begs to be different. The multi-functional desk is not just a plain work station but an elegant object to make a decorous statement while getting work done. Clad in an elegant combination of caramel-colored leather and sleek walnut, it is dexterously designed to accommodate lessening work tools of this day and age like tablet computers and smart phones. However it doesn’t miss out on some space to hold magazines and papers too.
Exclusively designed by Philippe Nigro, it is inspired by vintage leather steamer trunk and is a part of an eight-piece collection showcased by the French manufacturer last April in Milan. In an attempt to churn out utility objects for everyday use, the Coffre à Lutrin is an object you have to discover, as described by the designer. Mr. Nigro elucidates, “The idea was to think about really useful, quotidian objects that you use maybe without thinking that you are using them.”
