Percival Lafer is a contemporary Brazilian furniture maker and pioneer of the Brazilian Modernist movement. He is most famous for his chair and sofa designs, which combine low-profile hardwood structures with plush leather upholstery. â€œIâ€™ve always been drawn to the motion features of furniture,â€ heâ€™s said. â€œThe engineering and design work that goes into its mechanisms is fascinating and fulfilling.â€ Born on April 12, 1936 in Brazil, he studied at the Mackenzie Presbyterian University College of Architecture in SÃ£o Paulo. After graduating, his father passed away and he and his brothers took over LAFER, his fatherâ€™s furniture company. The designer currently lives and works in Campos do JordÃ£o, Brazil.
