$ 7,497
  • Description
    This beautiful MP-97 coffee table, made of Solid Jatobá wood is another great example of the imaginative and innovative mind of the designer and architect Percival Lafer. Definitely a stunning and unique design. The tabletop is made of Persian limestone and was replaced later, so it is not original from the period. The piece is not restored yet but can be done by one of our best craftsmanship using the fabric of your choice.

    The MP-97 model is one of the most acclaimed of those designed by Percival Lafer. Gaining a long life in its production, including for export, it can be said that it is one of the most emblematic creations and that most represent the extensive work of the designer. With an iconic design and memorable features, the mp-97 model has classic and timeless attributes.

    Architect and designer Percival Lafer believed that instead of idealizing design, often conceived as art, a piece could only be considered really relevant if it pleased the public, not just the creator.
    He is not just recognized for his originality and innovation, but he is also one of the pioneers of the industrialization of the Brazilian design processes. His pieces have an excellent design quality and are made of the best materials and techniques available in traditional furniture making. For him "each project should reflect the state of the art applied to new ideas". Ahead of his time, he was a pioneer in the search for new technical resources and also in the use and combinations of materials with originality and boldness. His creations ended up conquering the world, thus helping to give new meaning to the idea of Brazilian furniture.
