Biography

Brooklyn-based furniture designer Paul Loebach comes from a long line of German woodworkers and industrial designers, and at first many of his designs appear like clean, simple expressions in wood. In reality, the designer experiments with cutting-edge materials and methods, creating pieces like the Watson table, named after one of the scientists who discovered the structure of DNA, for its molded helix-shaped wood and carbon composite legs, and the Tocotta and Fuga chairs, which combine handcraft with computer technology. Inspired by “the notion of ‘the unknown craftsman’ and the evolution of objects over time,” as well as designers like Gio Ponti and George Nakashima, Loebach creates products like his punchy, primary-colored chairs and step stools that seem both timeless and of the moment.
