    Born in Brazil on April 12th, 1936, Percival Lafer studied at the Mackenzie Presbyterian University College of Architecture in São Paulo. After graduating, his father passed away, and he and his brothers took over Móveis Lafer, his father's furniture company. Móveis Lafer, where Percival designed a wide range of products, played a substantial role in Brazilian furniture in the second half of the 20th century. Innovations in technique and form resulted in the development of standardized elements that were reused across different product lines. These solutions included demountable and easy-to-transport products. The market welcomed Percival's creations, and the rapid industrial growth made it possible to export the pieces. The designer currently lives and works in Campos do Jordão, Brazil.
