MORENTZ exhibits a design table by Jorge Zalszupin at BRAFA 2020
At the upcoming BRAFA Art Fair, MORENTZ will offer diverse pieces with a timeless aesthetic from all over the world. The large 1960s ‘Guanabara’ table with rosewood veneer by Jorge Zalszupin is a must-see for all art lovers. The Brazilian designer worked in a very sustainable way, using left-over scraps of wood from his factory for the design. Prior to the fair, Simon Visser of MORENTZ reveals how the beauty of the original veneer has been restored in the gallery's workshop.
