The Petalas table was inspired by a folded paper structure of origami. This table is composed of eight petals of layered Brazilian Imbiua Walnut on a metal round structure, together they form an octagonal shape.
In the Petalas series Zalszupin plays with an organic form inspired by flower petals. The idea works both as a large octagonal table as well as in a smaller one made of only four elements. The restrictive geometric form has been interpreted in a poetic way. Petalas tables are captivating due to their clever construction and sensual shape, bringing to mind some of Neimeyer’s architectural forms, for instance Palácio da Alvorada in Brasilia.
