Percival Lafer 'S-1' Rosewood and Leather Lounge Chairs, Brazil, 1976, Signed

About the Item

This gorgeous restored pair of 'S-1' cognac-color leather lounge chairs by Brazilian designer Percival Lafer for Lafer MP. This set was designed in 1976 and was Lafer's concept of merging Brazilian design with Scandinavian sensibility - the sling seat cushions are made of molded foam carried by Rosewood frames. Signed with Lafer labels throughout underneath seat cushions. *NOTE* The sofa that is shown in some of the photos has sold, however we have another one in a very similar color. It is not quite an exact match to the chairs, but it is the same exact model and the only variance is the couch has slightly lighter color with a bit more warm cognac tone to the leather. If you are interested in a complete living room set, contact us for more details. This incredible signed collectors set with original leather cushions are also ideal for interior designers working on high end projects as it was fully restored - Rosewood frames were refinished and joinery tightened, the original cognac leather cushions cleaned, conditioned and spot-dyed with color matched leather dye in a few areas that benefited from it. The S-1 design features Brazilian exoticness paired with Scandinavian sensibility. Of Lafer's designs, the S-1 is a bit more rare to find than some of his more common ones such as the MP-97, MP-41 and MP-25. The frames are more architectural in feel than most of his other designs, perhaps a refinement developed throughout his years of experience in this 1976 design. This slouchy, casual S-1 set of easy armchairs by Percival Lafer would work great in a Mid-Century Modern, Space Age Mod, Scandanavian Modern or Danish Modern home or penthouse apartment but could also look fantastic in a Post-Modern, Contemporary or Zen / Minimalism room. Also consider mixing it up in a Traditional, Transitional, Hollywood Regency, Classical or Art Deco room with a splash of juxtaposition. Would also be an apt choice in a commercial project such as a hotel lobby lounge or members club, creative design studio or high-rise executive office. MEASUREMENTS: H 27.25" x W 31.5" x D 33.75" Seat Height: 15.75" Seat Depth: 20" Arm Height: 20.75" CONDITION: Excellent vintage condition. Rosewood frames were refinished and all joinery tightened / serviced. Leather was cleaned, conditioned and restored with color matched leather dye in a few areas that could use it. Areas of age still slightly visible under refinish. Leather with attractive light patina. Very attractive set ready for immediate use in a high-end location.

    By Cassina, Mario Bellini
    Located in Los Angeles, CA
    A beautiful black leather Mario Bellini Cab lounge chair, Model #414, signed Cassina, designed in the 1970s. These fine examples of the cab line by Mario Bellini for Cassina are classic staples for luxury interior designers and collectors alike, these lounge variations of the design are larger and deeper than the similar dining armchair, and have the addition of the seat cushion. Signed underneath with Cassina embossing to the leather. Mario Bellini described the 1970s bestselling design for the Cab collection as “This was a new kind of chair, constructed totally out of leather, much cloned since then.” and is now a signature piece in Cassina’s Contemporanei collection. Cab was the first-ever chair to feature a free-standing leather structure, inspired by how our skin fits over our skeleton. The upholstery consists of sixteen pieces of saddle leather. They then undergo fourteen discrete procedures, again by hand. The pieces are sewn together only when their outer edges have been trimmed to ensure a perfect fit. Once assembled, the cover is attached to the chair’s steel skeleton and held in place by means of a zipper fastening as in a bespoke tailored...
