MIAMI, FL--(Marketwired - November 04, 2013) - Brazilian flair and creativity have long made their mark on the international design scene. From the legendary buildings of architect Oscar Niemeyer to the Havaianas craze that has taken the world by storm, Brazilian innovation is undeniable.
It is that indelible style which will be on display at Orchestra Brasil, an exhibit featuring innovative contemporary furniture and home décor by more than 18 of Brazil's top design studios. The exhibit will take place at the Brazil Art Fair Show, a new design and art exhibit located at 3501 NE Midtown Boulevard at 36th Street in Miami, that premieres during Art Basel Miami Beach 2013, December 4 to 8, 2013.
The show comes to Miami after a run during the Salone Internazionale del Mobile in Milan and features a juried selection of 24 pieces including chairs, tables, and home accessories from Alessandra Delgado-Girona Design, Bernardo Senna, Domingos Tótora, Em2 Design, Faro Design, Flávia Pagotti Silva, Gallina e Visentini, Jader Almeida, Lattoog Design, Luiz Pedrazzi, Mameluca, NDT Design, Projeto 3 Design, Quadrante Design, Regis Padilha, Studio B, UNT Intelligence Design and
Zanini de Zanine. A number of designers from this highly esteemed group have been awarded top honors and projects, including Zanini de Zanine, who has designed for Tolix and Poltrona Frau; Jader Almeida, recipient of the top award from Museu da Casa Brasileira, Brazil's premier design museum; Domingos Totora, who creates sustainable furniture and decorative objects using cardboard; and Guto Indio da Costa, who remodeled Rio's traditional street vendor stands on famed Copacabana Beach.
Orchestra Brasil was created by the Furniture Industry Association of Bento Gonçalves (Sindmóveis), a consortium of leading suppliers to the furniture industry, in an effort to further collaboration and business opportunities for Brazilian designers.
Cátia Scarton, president of Sindmóveis, invites Design Miami and Art Basel attendees to preview the exceptional designs. "We are excited about the modern, innovative, and quality designs created by Brazilian talent," said Scarton.
"Our designers offer an inspiring selection of products that reflect international trends, while remaining uniquely Brazilian."
In addition to Orchestra Brasil, visitors to Brazil Art Fair will see a selection of top Brazilian art galleries and design studios.
Orchestra Brasil will hold a silent auction during Art Week and donate the proceeds from the sales of the furniture and home decor items to DASH, the Design Architecture High School (of Miami).
Created by an initiative of Sindmóveis and supported by the Trade and Investment Promotion Agency (Apex-Brasil), Orchestra Brasil encourages exports by the Brazilian suppliers to the furniture industry. Established in 2003, it comprises more than 100 companies, including 32 furniture designers.
