Born into a family of Italian immigrants in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 1948, from a young age he was sensitive to design, inventing various objects and toys for himself. After completing a scientific technical education in chemistry, Lievore went on to work for an oil company. He later completed his military service and sought to further his love for design, so he began architecture at the Buenos Aires Faculty of Architecture. In 1977, he officially settled in Barcelona where he founded a studio in the Berenguer el Gran Square with colleague Norberto Chaves, and afterwards Daniel Perrando, Oriol Pibernat, and Jorge Pensi. Later, in 1984, he started his very own Alberto Lievore & Associates firm, which allowed him to learn and grow more as a designer. In 1991, he changed the name of his firm to Lievore Altherr Molina, as other designers Jeanette Altherr and Manel Molina joined the lineup. He still continues his incredible work with his firm, attaining worldwide acceptance and notability with his partners for their bold furniture designs.
