PERCIVAL LAFER, ABOUT THE DESIGNER:
Born in Brazil in 1936, architect, product and furniture designer Percival Lafer managed to design pieces that were categorized as fine design for affordable prices of the era. Often referred to by collectors as the "best kept secret" of mid-century modern design.
After graduating in architecture at the prestigious Mackenzie Presbyterian University in Sao Paulo, his father passed away unexpectedly, leaving the family furniture shop to his sons, at which point he abandoned his professional career as an architect before he it had begun, diverting instead to furniture design, a career he could pursue more easily due to the nature of his inherited business.
Lafer launched the renowned “MP-1” Armchair in 1961 and it was an instant success, covered in thin pieces of solid rosewood, and a seat upholstered with layers of foam, rather than springs. This provided Lafer with the leverage he needed at the time to create his company, establishing himself as a business that won many patents, both a well-earned reputation for innovation and originality in design and the confidence to name his brand Lafer MP - the acronym MP stands for Moveis Patentados or "Patented Furniture" in furniture.
