Architect and designer
Very nice small sized and sophisticated sideboard from the componivel series designed by Jorge Zalszupin and manufactured by his own company L’Atelier, Brazil 1959. Modular furniture by Jorge is instantly recognizable, as he was the first one to come up with such a constructivist way of creating furniture. From the start of L’Atelier, large numbers of variations were created, but were made with the same principles and distinctive features. Each cabinet, regardless its size, had a number of patchwork Jacaranda rosewood veneered cabinets that were secured onto a bottom and top plate, and thus seem to be wedged in which gave a very minimalist feel. Most sideboards were made in patchwork veneer such as this one, which gives the piece a very sculptural, artistic feel. Hinges are recessed into the cabinet doors, and the signature handles were drilled out, and veneered. This specific small sideboard has solid square wooden feet. This sideboard is fully refinished, but we kept the original look and patina is still visible. This unusual cabinet has a very nice open part on the left with a beautiful bent part which makes the piece more special and a-symmetrical. On the right there is a closed cabinet with 1 folding door. The sideboard is finished all around and can be placed in the middle to use as a room divider as well.
Fully refinished in our own atelier with high quality UV protection lacquer with preservation of authenticity. Also, completely structural checked and ready to use.
