Both Oscar Niemeyer and Jorge Zalszupin have played a critical role in shaping Brazil's modernist identity and often had intersecting practices. They collaborated on Brasília, the country’s federal capital and one of the world’s most ambitious architecture projects. Oscar designed the elegant and astonishing buildings that made up the city and Jorge created furniture pieces that outfitted several of the official structures.
Oscar is widely regarded as one of Brazil’s most influential architects, whose visionary work continues to have a profound impact on modern architecture worldwide.
Oscar Niemeyer's furniture collection was originally designed in the 1970’s with his daughter Anna Maria and features the Rio rocking chaise, Marquesa bench, Alta armchair and Alta ottoman.
Jorge Zalszupin was the founder of the seminal Brazilian design house L’Atelier, which created furniture and home items many have considered classics.
Zalszupin's collection features 20 pieces originally designed in the 1960’s. Some of the highlights include the Circa bench, Petalas and Romana coffee tables, Adriana, Ipanema and Ina armchairs, among other items.
