Louis Vuitton’s Legendary Trunks Moves to Sweden

Follow its debut in Amsterdam Legendary Trunks – The Exhibition, opened in Gothenburg this month with Swedish added by Imagineear to its multimedia guide specially created for this touring exhibition.

The exhibition is an immersive experience exploring the luggage trunks created by iconic designer Louis Vuitton, and the ‘Golden Age of Travel’ that the items symbolise. Trunks that carried valuables for their wealthy and prominent owners have themselves come to be considered treasures.

In all 328 trunks feature in the displays, the oldest dating from 150 years ago. Around these precisely crafted objects – some designed with specific purpose, for example, a trunk holding 1,000 cigars, a games trunk or a dressing case – are captivating stories of celebrity ownership, powerful personalities, exotic travel, elegance and adventure.  US President Franklin D Roosevelt’s wardrobe trunk and Lily Pons’ shoe trunk feature as exhibits around which their histories are told.

Imagineear’s multimedia content is predominantly audio using actors to transport visitors on a journey through the experience by portraying three imaginary, typical, travellers: a gentleman explorer, a photo-journalist covering celebrity stories and a rather bored, super-rich young woman. The guide, produced in English, Dutch for its residency in The Netherlands and now Swedish, is provided on Imagineear’s MPti™ touch-screen devices that support the immersive visitor experience envisioned by the exhibition’s creative team.

Legendary Trunks the Exhibition is in Sweden, until 19th August and is produced by Nordic Exhibitions & Events Ltd.  It is based on one of the world’s largest private unique collections.
