The results are wild and range from actual sculptures to digital presentations. And we’ve got some of the most interesting to share with you.

A birthday cake for Louis made of 31,700 LEGO bricks was a collaboration between the Louis Vuitton Atelier and seven children and took over 50 hours to make.

The LOUIS 200 project invited a panopoly of creative folks spanning arts and culture, the sciences, sports, global causes and more to each personalize a metaphorical blank canvas measuring 50 x 50 x 100 centimeters, approximately the dimensions of the original trunk that Louis designed in the 1850s.

This invitation yielded 200 extraordinary transformations: vessels transmitting dreams and desires, abstract concepts and artistic expressions. Some of the reimagined trunks are digital while others are physical manifestations.

Here are a few of our favorites from the exhibition.

Faye McLeod, Louis Vuitton’s Visual Image Director, says “this project has always been about creativity, a real tribute to Louis’ ingenuity and entrepreneurial spirit. We get to see how such a cross-section of talents answered the same brief while also taking a moment to appreciate the man himself.”
