Product Description

Minimal, comfortable and elegant, Jorge Zalszupin designed the 801 Armchair in the early 1960’s for his seminal Brazilian mid-century design firm L’Atelier. Out of production ever since, the 801’s delicate, tapered wooden feet, straightforward frame and slight angled arms have been rediscovered and reissued as a long-lost Brazilian mid-century treasure.

ETEL’s design collection comprises one century of Brazilian furniture. With its pioneering re-edition work, ETEL brings back graceful designs of the modern Brazilian production, discovered only recently, and now considered as one of the most relevant worldwide for that period. Pieces characterized by skillful handiwork and the use of exquisite materials were created by architects and artists intent on unveiling the local culture, under the influence of the international avant-garde. This retrieval is based on a strict methodology, faithfulness to the originals, and intensive collaboration with the institutes and families that represent each creator's oeuvre. The collection includes pieces by Oscar Niemeyer, Lina Bo Bardi, Jorge Zalszupin, Sergio Rodrigues, Oswaldo Bratke, Branco & Preto, and Giuseppe Scapinelli, among others. The modern legacy continues with remarkable contemporary creators such as Isay Weinfeld, Arthur de Mattos Casas, Claudia Moreira Salles, Carlos Motta, Etel Carmona, Lia Siqueira and Dado Castello Branco. ETEL is often referred to as “the haute couture of Brazilian furniture” thanks to the flawless production of what is best in modern and contemporary Brazilian design. Its essence is best expressed in a remarkable joinery workshop located in the Sao Paulo countryside. Skilled artisans work in the shop, where they combine traditional, time-honored techniques with a deep understanding of native Brazilian woods, to bring internationally acclaimed designs to life. Since 1999, ETEL has been involved in sustainable projects, with certified wood from responsibly managed forests in the Amazon region, as well as the empowerment and development of professional skills of forest populations. In 2001, ETEL was one of the first furniture companies in Brazil to be awarded the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certification.
