Highly rare and versatile set of MP85 chairs designed and manufactured by Percival Lafer in Brazil in 1971. They’re crafted from solid hardwood and have been recently reupholstered with a white linen-like fabric, so they’re in great condition. The hardwood structure shows a beautiful grain pattern and feels substantial in terms of quality. In order to make a single daybed, two chairs had to be juxtaposed, the backrests removed from their original positions and manually attached to the ends of the seats. The MP-85 was a commercial success because of its simple and qosequently competitive, construction. You can also turn two lounge chairs into one chaise longue.
When it comes to mid-century furniture, the innovative work of the Brazilian modernists has often been overlooked, including the designs of prolific maker Percival Lafer. Lafer studied architecture at São Paulo’s Universidade Mackenzie. After he graduated, his father passed away suddenly, leaving a furniture business that Lafer took over with his brothers. Taking up the mantle, Lafer made the jump from architecture to furniture design in 1961, putting a focus on thoughtfully designed pieces available at affordable prices.
