Jorge Zalszupin Pair of Cubo Chairs L’Atelier Brazil, Brazil, 1970

About

Jorge Zalszupin was a Polish architect who studied his trade at Bucharest’s Ecole des Beaux Arts. Whilst working in Paris he became acquainted with the works of Brazilians Oscar Niemeyer and Roberto Burle Marx, relating to their buildings and ethos. So after World War II he decided to move to Brazil – which was undergoing rapid change, with many opportunities for young designers and architects. Zalszupin was embraced into an exclusive group of designers that advised and worked with Oscar Niemeyer. In 1959 he founded the influential L’Atelier furniture studio, taking advantage of Brazil’s rich natural resources of both material and skilled craftsmen to take forward Brazilian modernism into a new age. The 1970s Cubo series takes cuboid forms and scoops out their core. The body floats just above the ground on a shallow plinth. Sourced in original black vinyl from a private collection in Brazil, they have been reupholstered in a Pierre Frey linen wool bouclé.
