Three Brazilian brands on display at ICFF New York 2021
Considered the largest platform in North America to showcase contemporary furniture design, three Brazilian companies associated with the Brazilian Furniture Project participate in the next edition of ICFF – The International Contemporary Furniture Fair, which takes place on November 14 and 15, 2021.
Get to know the companies
Recognized as one of the most sophisticated Brazilian brands in the high-end furniture sector, Ornare’s mission is to unify values such as luxury, design, architecture and aesthetics. Points that sum up very well what will be presented in this special edition of the ICFF.
Founded 35 years ago, Ornare’s production is focused on bespoke furniture for the kitchen, bathroom, home theater and closet. Since 2006, the brand has had showrooms in the American cities of Miami, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles and New York. This year, the company also opened new units in the Hamptons and will soon have another showroom in NY, in the Brooklyn area, and in Connecticut. Ornare is also launching their first address in Dubai, in the United Arab Emirates, which is scheduled to open doors in the coming months.
An expert in the development of outdoor living furniture, Tidelli presents pieces in line with the newest trends for the redefinition of our homes, which become increasingly multifunctional, highlighting our need to rethink about spaces to work, study, rest and have fun, sometimes all at the same time and in the same place.
Currently, the company has 17 exclusive stores in Brazil and two in California (USA). The brand is also displayed in 18 multi-brands stores in Brazil and in the United States, in addition to Panama, Mexico and Uruguay. The company also has a distributor in Norway.
Uultis is a high-end furniture brand that matches their Brazilian design and soul with an internationally recognized quality. Translating the ICFF concept with excellence, the brand features contemporary style pieces that combine the delicacy of handcrafted finishing and natural textures with the high technology and productive capacity of Herval Group, one of the largest furniture manufacturers in Brazil.
Uultis, in Latin, means desire, hence the inspiration for the creation of the brand: a piece of furniture that reflects the contemporary desire for well living. Thus, guiding the work developed by them, which, far beyond the object, focuses on the passion for the experience of well living, with an attentive look at details, in original and functional pieces, in which all excess is discarded in favor of beauty associated with comfort, elegance and well-being.

Espaço Brasil NY
Making the most of the ICFF occasion, ABIMÓVEL and Apex-Brasil will also organize the “Espaço Brasil in NY”. The event, which will be conceived as an exhibition, occupies an area of 200 m² in SoHo, one of the main design districts in the city.
Following the concept presented at the Fuorisalone 2021 circuit, with the exhibition “Brazil – Design in Motion”, which caught the attention of the public at the Milan Design Week, the space is signed by the Moreira do Valle office, which is also responsible for the curatorship and selection of the pieces.
The goal is to transform the location into Brazil’s home in New York between November 11 and 14, aiming to facilitate and optimize the relationship of Brazilian companies and designers with the global market, especially North-American buyers, and the international press. Thus, highlighting the authenticity of our industry and professionals, as well as wood and other typically Brazilian raw materials, with the exhibition of more than 40 pieces from at least 20 companies, in addition to several designers linked to Brazil Design + Industry.
Name given to the program that connects manufacturers and designers in the furniture field through the Brazilian Furniture Project, Brazil Design + Industry aims to unite the creative potential of design professionals with the productive capacity of furniture factories to create increasingly original, attractive, high-end, sustainable, high-quality and functional furniture and solutions that are accessible to the national and international market.
