Mount Lebanon Chair
107 x 38 x 99 cm
Crafted from white Bristol paper, the Mount Lebanon Chair is an homage to the design ingenuity of the American Shaker community- famous for their low cost, high quality furniture production in the 1800’s. In this paper model an antique shaker chair from the Mount Lebanon community has gone through a ‘material translation’ from wood to paper, as it was carefully measured and recreated in 1:1 scale.
A symbol of the highly intelligent mass-manufacturing of its time, this reproduction functions as a display of Paul Loebach’s work process, in which paper is used as a transformative material for crafting detailed models as a means to examine new design ideas.
Material: Bristol paper, foam core, hot glue
