Inspired by Diversity, Driven by Aesthetic Functionality
10/05/2019 - Refined finishes and precious details characterize the latest collection presented by Ornare at ICFF in NYC, as part of Projeto Raiz. West East, created by Art Director Ricardo Bello Dias in collaboration with Studio Ornare, offers technical, aesthetic and handcrafted solutions, adaptable to different situations and lifestyles, attributes that consistently guide the development of the brand’s new collections.

The elements of the collection can take on different configurations and are available in a wide variety of materials, colors, and finishes. The four product lines, Ikigai, Shaker, Infinite and Mech, bring a wide range of solutions for kitchens and cabinets. The collection seeks inspiration from diversity, combining the ancient ikigai philosophy with Shaker ideology.

The Ikigai line is inspired by two primary values of Asian cultures: essentiality and technological innovation. Meaning 'a reason to be', encompassing joy, the Japanese word is often used to indicate the source of value in one's life or the things that make life worth living. A lightweight frame system with a minimalist design builds the doors of cabinets and kitchens, leaving only a glimpse of the metal structure. The same system - built upon a larger scale - defines the main independent elements of the collection: a revolving and sliding door system, a modular shelf and some small thematic cabinets called Little Luxuries.

The Shaker line offers a reinterpretation of traditional kitchens. The frame of the doors stands out as the main element and its metal structure makes it modern and sophisticated. It is especially the frame that gives endless possibilities to customize the product, with a wide range of aesthetics, from classic to contemporary. The line is also distinguished by a playful aspect, inspired by the Shaker community, and their custom of hanging everyday objects on the walls. This is how the Ornare equipped bar system was born.

This line is presented as an evolution of the Wall System, covering the house as a unique and fluid environment. Its characteristic striped panels allow walls, doors, and furniture to merge into a single surface, with a dynamic look and high decorative value.

Short for mechanics, this is a line with a very light appearance. Its visible structure takes on the main role, like a skeleton, and can produce a wide range of modular elements. The glass doors are a perfect match for this line and its lighting.
