Damien Hirst was born in 1965 in Bristol, UK. He lives and works in London and Devon.He has participated in numerous group exhibitions including Into Me / Out of Me, P.S.1Contemporary Art Center, New York (2006), In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida, Tate Britain, the50th Venice Biennale (2003) and Century City, Tate Modern (2001). Solo exhibitionsinclude Astrup Fearn- ley Museet fur Moderne Kunst, Oslo (2005), Museum of Fine Arts,Boston (2005) and Archaeological Museum, Naples (2004). He received the DAAD- fellowship in Berlin in 1994 and the Turner Prize in 1995.

Damien Hirst was inspired by the movie Dead Ringers by David Cronenburg in which a display of beauti- ful stainless steel surgical instruments caught his imagination. He wanted a piece that was visually stunning in black leather with dark blue velvet interior and toprint his beautiful butterflies on to the outside. Louis Vuitton was inspired by the iconic secre- tary trunk to create two twin trunks with opposite frontal openings and silver hardware finishings.

Each trunk contains 10 different sized drawers with compartments made to accomodate each individual surgical instrument. In line with Damien’s desires the twin trunks have been made in black Nomade leather with a deep blue microfibre lining. The leather has been specially printed with an array of butterflies individually placed by Damien himself. Two silver skulls are incrusted in each of the inside of the lids.

    Good article covering some points I really enjoyed.

  • A.

    You did the readers good now, after all those unnecessary comments! A lot of Louis there :P

  • Bengt

    ^ Yeah! Haha.. I still got to post more Vuitton coz my inbox is piling up.. they'll enjoy it.. ;p

    Its been quite a while since we last chatted. I haven't been around for a few days coz I've been sick. I'll just catch you on iChat.. ;)

  • Isaiah

    I agree! Hopefully, this dose of LV posts will quiet down the masses.

    By the way, Bengt, even thought this is an LV blog, i think it is cool for you to occasionally work in other design houses. The complaints previously stated were unnecessary and unwarranted.
