Jorge Zalszupin Onda Bench $38,000>

Description

This Onda Bench by Jorge Zalszupin is a rare, early example of that design, featuring cylindrical feet in solid jacaranda wood rather than metal. Its sculptural, elegant form is characteristic of Zalszupin’s work.

Born in Poland, Zalszupin immigrated to Brazil in 1949. Following his training in architecture, he designed residences for São Paulo elites. In 1959, he founded L’Atelier, a company that produced furniture for both office and residential use. Influenced by Oscar Niemeyer, Zalszupin's work is a benchmark of Brazilian modernist design.
