Architect and designer
Beautiful 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. Some sideboards were not made in patchwork veneer such as this one, they are rarer. Hinges are recessed into the cabinet doors, and the signature handles were drilled out, and veneered. This specific sideboard has very nice X shaped matt chrome plated feet. Which were less common and more expensive to order at the time, probably the reason why you don’t see that so often. This sideboard is fully refinished, but we kept the original look and patina is still visible. There is plenty of storage behind the 4 wooden folding doors.
