Idolized Origami Seating
The Mount Lebanon Chair Celebrates and Elevates Craftsmanship

Even looking closely at the Mount Lebanon Chair, can you tell that the entire thing has been carefully constructed from Bristol paper and foam core? Indeed, the familiar household furnishing is not made of conventional wooden material, rather functioning as a study and a model of a nostalgic design idea.

Paul Loebach was inspired by the products that were meticulously crafted by the Shakers in 19th-century America. This traditional dining chair is complete with tapering legs, carved backrest posts and a seat that’s woven between the four sides of the frame. The apparently rounded quality of the components—when viewed from a comfortable distance—is achieved with a fine multifaceted assembly. Executed at a scale of 1:1, the Mount Lebanon Chair is displayed on a set of coat hooks and must not be used to bear weight.
