1973 Armchair Commander | Design: Jorge Zalszupin | Aluminum & Glass Fiber-Leather Upholstery
Jorge Zalszupin (b. 1922) was a Polish architect who arrived in Brazil in 1950, and began designing furniture for his architecture clients.
In 1955, Zalszupin started L’Atelier, a furniture design firm, along with the designers Julio Katinski, Oswaldo Mellone and Paulo Jorge Pedreira. As business increased, Zalszupin opened his first store in the Conjunto Nacional.
L’Atelier, like most of the furniture manufacturers of that time, started as a small company that produced made-to-order furniture of the finest craftsmanship. L’Atelier’s designs are renown in Brazil and throughout the world as hallmarks of modernism.
