The research aims to investigate the performance of the furniture company Mobilinea between 1960 and 1975 in São Paulo. Recovering its history, we seek to discuss the issues that arise in the production cycle of furniture, through the design office, the factory, the stores and advertising, as well as investigating the lifestyles that were associated with that furniture. A seconday objective is to understand through this case study, clues regarding the production of material culture in a period of paradoxes, between the so called "economic miracle" and a state of of repression.
