Travel exhibition ‘Volez, Voguez, Voyagez’ for Louis Vuitton
Louis Vuitton’s traveling exhibition “Volez, Voguez, Voyagez” (Fly, Sail, Travel) retraces the adventure of the House of Louis Vuitton from 1854 to the present. For the Seoul, New York City and Shanghai editions of this exhibition, we created high-impact entrance statements to welcome guests into Louis Vuitton's world of travel.
For the Shanghai edition, we created an entrance statement. An atmospheric space, in-between night and day, adorned with lanterns and flooded by neon light. Hanging from the ceiling in an assortment of shapes and sizes, each lantern was embedded with LED panel with synchronised scrolling messages and graphics, welcoming visitors. Overhead, we installed an ever-shifting digital ‘skylight’, animated by moving clouds and glowing colours.
In Seoul, we developed an interactive LED wall on a massive scale (90m2), inviting visitors to fly a plane over world cities using their own bodies to control the movement.
In our custom-built 3D environment, a classic plane (which mimics a real version displayed in the exhibition) encounters famous world monuments as it makes a seemingly endless journey soaring above the clouds.
For the New York edition of the exhibition, our space was a long corridor rather than an entranceway. Here we presented a digital subway station, crafted with Louis Vuitton styling. A 22m long video wall allowed a life-size train to enter the space at set intervals, accompanied by an immersive 6-speaker soundscape.
