We've long had our eyes on the wares of Brazilian furniture brand Ornare, which has just upped its offering with a new collection of kitchens and wardrobes called 'High Line'. Striking graphics and bold colour-blocking characterise the family of products, as do refined detailing and a more streamlined aesthetic.

The collection stems from artful collaborations with Brazilian architects Ruy Ohtake, Guto Indio da Costa and Patricia Anastassiadis. The brand, meanwhile, also enlisted designers Marcelo Rosenbaum and Zanini de Zanine to create new lines, with art direction and branding by Ricardo Bello Dias and gourmet concepts by local chef Emmanuel Bassoleil.

Marcelo Rosenbaum applied his deft colour sensibility to a new kitchen range, featuring a Lego-like ball motif and playful, bold shades of orange and yellow. Guto Indio da Costa created pieces infused with his penchant for technology, while Patricia Anastassiadis focused on sophisticated wardrobe solutions with opulent touches and minimal lines, drawing inspiration from everything from Savile Row to Venetian architecture and the graphic works of MC Escher. Graphic elements were also at the heart of Ruy Othake's work, with a line of wardrobes and storage solutions honing in on colourful geometric lines influenced by Brazilian architecture and nature.

From this year, Ornare will also partner with Italian door manufacturer Trè-Piu, exclusively launching its designs in Brazil. Antonio Citterio's Continuum paneled system and diaphanous Pavilion collection for Trè-Piu, as well as doors by Daniel Libeskind, will complete the High Line collection.
