Japanese artist Takashi Murakami has legions of fans. So, despite the certainly high price tag, these new Takashi Murakami rugs for Louis Vuitton are bound to sell. Designboom featured the rugs.
The designs vary from happy-as-can-be, with flowers and smiley faces, to slightly morbid yet feminine, with the skull image on a pink background. Murakami's previous collaborations with Louis Vuitton have all gone swimmingly, so this new endeavor is no surprise.
Implications - Many of today's consumers find themselves feeling restless and bored with the minimalistic products being created by so many companies and businesses as of late. Businesses that devote their efforts to creating unusual and eccentric products will fare well in today's society.
