Jorge Zalszupin Pétalas side table L'Atelier Brazil 1960

About the Item

Iconic side table designed by Jorge Zalszupin and manufactured by L'Atelier, Brazil 1960. One of the most iconic designs by Zalszupin, in beautiful grained rosewood. The folded paper structures of origami constitute the inspiration for the Pétalas table. In the project of the leaf table Zalszupin had the help of architect Julio Roberto Katinsky, who designed for L’Atelier in the beginning of its activities. Pétalas, which means flower leaves, was designed to guarantee the rational use of the leftover parts of Andoriaha’s production. Consisting of 4 "leaves" fixed to each other at the underside of the table. To shape these folded designs, layers of Brazilian Jacaranda rosewood were carefully pressed together using heat in a mold. In very good refinished condition with the original age still visible. Celebrated for his sleek designs, but yet very intriguing approach to form, Zalszupin’s work captivates a great part of the Modernist movement in Brasil. After graduating in architecture at the École des Beaux Arts in Bucharest, Romania in 1945, he moved to Paris where he didn’t find the opportunities he was hoping for. These series of events in war torn Europe, and led him to look for a new life abroad the European continent. Just as many other immigrants coming to the Americas from all over Europe seeking fortune, the young polish man originally from Warsaw, Poland named Jerzy Zalszupin was no exception. Arriving in Rio de Janeiro by ship in 1949, and determined to make his mark, he began working with another Polish architect called Luciano Korngold in São Paulo. After opening his Sao Paulo studio, called L’Atelier in 1951, Zalszupin mainly created furniture and a few residential projects. As time went by his label now called ‘Zalszupin’ gained, and later on became closely involved with Oscar Niemeyer’s vision for the new capital of Brasili, in which he had a great part in Niemeyer’s architectural commissions, furniture and interior designs.
