Stunning and unique made sideboard designed by Jorge Zalszupin and manufactured by his own comany L’Atelier, Brazil 1960. This is a unique sideboard designed especially for a customer’s holiday home in Biarritz, France 1960. This sideboard is comparable to the modular system designed by Zalszupin in 1959. The difference is that this sideboard has much more elegant round legs on the corners and doors and is partly covered with leather. This was also seen at the modular system sometimes at the doors or panels. It has 3 drawers in the middle and on the left and right of that there are the leather covered folding doors. The sideboard is in fully original condition and the leather has a nice patina from age and usage. This comes from an interior with several pieces by Zalszupin which were imported from Brazil in the early 1960s. All the features this sideboard shows were also used by Zalszupin in other designs, the leather handles in his desks, the legs with the Jockey chairs and the patchwork were a trademark for many of Zalszupins designs. This was an initiative for the rationalization and use of left-over scraps of wood available at the factory, allowing, at the same time a combination of their different colourings. Highly rare sideboard in stunning original condition.
Provenance; This sideboard comes from a holiday home in Biarritz, where Brazilian people had a holiday home close to their home country; Portugal. We acquired several pieces from this home, including this sideboard.
