Brazilian Modern Armchair in Black Leather by Jorge Zalszupin, 1973, Brazil

$ 12,000
  • Description
    Available today, the Commander armchair was conceived to attend Brazil’s growing market of office furniture. The first model (with casters) was developed in 1973 and later, a fixed model. The seat and backs are composed of a single curved volume made of fiberglass, with black leather cushions and the armrests are made of a well-made solid aluminum piece.

    Not only beautiful and well designed, but this piece is also known for its comfort, with a reclining mechanism and a swivel base. The piece has been refinished and re-upholstered in black leather

    This armchair effortlessly flexes into any Mid-Century Modern, modern, Danish modern or contemporary environment. This armchair is currently displayed in the gallery with a Jorge Zalszupin desk and it looks awesome.

    About Jorge Zalszupin a native of Warsaw, Poland, studied architecture at Bucharest’s Ecole des Beaux Arts. While working as an architect in Paris, he found inspiration in articles about Brazilians Oscar Niemeyer and Roberto Burle Marx and immigrated to Brazil.

    His work as an architect created a demand for decoration and furniture proposals that suited the style of his projects and, for many years, Zalszupin designed and executed them for his clients. The demand was as great as the desire to grow and expand his business, and he then decided to found Atelier Móveis in November 1959.

    A significant part of Zalszupin's furniture production is tributary to his architecture. He used new design language and tendencies, while maintaining a functional view of ambience for internal spaces. L’Atelier was a design collective of architects, engineers, craftsmen, and a full-scale team of professionals that did everything from researching materials to finalizing the product.
