Super rare and fully original ‘Manhattan’ sofa designed by Jorge Zalszupin and manufactured in his own company L’Atelier, Brazil 1960. Since few were made by L’Atelier, the Manhattan series is considered to be one of the rarest designs created by Zalszupin. Unlike other outspoken designs, it is a playful shape that argues where forms change into new ones, causing the overall functions to disappear from the whole and at the same time create a visually impressive and inviting appearance. A hard horizontal line cuts through the organic shape and separates the smooth leatherette surfaces. Carefully placed buttons in the seat hold the leather in neatly position. The tapered bottom side is in contrast with the top side and takes away some of the heaviness. This sofa is upholstered in its original black shiny leatherette which almost looks like a lacquered finish. But it has the texture of leather and gives that a more natural look. The condition of the upholstery is very good, age considered. The leatherette has some small marks and the inside foam might have lost a little of its puffiness. The sofa looks like a light weight since it is hollow, but the metal structure creating the shape of the sofa, also provides weight and stability. In addition to the sofa, we also have a lounge chair available which can be found in another listing.
