Designed by Jorge Zalszupin in 1959. Polish born Jorge Zalszupin moved to Brazil after World War II, where he found an opportunity to develop his extremely sensual, modern architecture. A desire to rebuild a new post-war world and a wave of development in Brazil proved an ideal time for this creative atmosphere to flourish. Brazil has plenty of hidden mid-century gems, many of them being uncovered and re-issued now by Brazilia Interiors, including the “Dinamarquesa” Armchair. This Jorge Zalszupin-designed chair has a curvy frame and arms made from sucupira wood, with some period upholstery to match and a slight angle at the back for comfort. Re-editions are available in a variety of certified woods.
