About

Jorge Zalszupin for L'Atelier, rosewood, Brazil, circa 1960 This modular system can be used in different setups providing a versatile item to meet the needs and interest of the user. The piece is quintessential for modern Brazilian design by Zalszupin. Robustness, simplicity and rounded shapes characterize the aesthetics of this modular furniture item. Another typical aspect that marks the design of Zalszupin is the use of different strips of rosewood, a habit that he discovered when using left over scraps at l'Atelier. The different colors and versatility of this piece result in a playful piece of furniture that holds a variety of functions such as a room divider, high board or cabinet. Jorge Zalszupin (1922), born in Warsaw, emigrated to Brazil as he want to emigrate far from Europe, impoverished by the constant wars, content in its past and against any sort of progress. 'Zalszupin worked in a variety of areas such as design, architecture and interior design. He was a true designer of his time and place: using local wood and the most up to date techniques. Zalzupin was very much invested in Brazilian architecture: 'the architecture was new. The was none of that clinging to the past like there was in France.' This was also the reason that Zalszupin started l'Atelier: to manufacture the designs that fitted the new architecture and culture of Brazil. He treated the wood with loving care and designed both domestic and office furniture. Zalsupin is seen as one of the most important 20th century designers.
