Paul Loebach

Paul Loebach was raised in Cincinnati, Ohio amid the industrial landscape of the Midwestern US, where he left to graduate from Rhode Island School of Design in 2002. Descended from a long line of German woodworkers, his father is a manufacturing engineer who developed new plastic forming technologies for Union Carbide in the 1970s. Paul sees his projects as an idealistic fusion of his family's distant and more recent history.

After graduating from RISD, Paul moved to New York City and established a design studio where he currently works as a consultant, specializing in wood furniture and emerging manufacturing technologies.

Paul writes about his work, "I'm interested in design as the study of form for the basic purpose of giving objects meaning. Design is a semiotic language and must therefore hold a balance between the continuity of recognizable imagery, and the poetic shift of innovation. The future of design is nothing more than an embodiment of the profoundly human need to structure our environment as a reflection of ourselves."

    I am putting together a Dr. Seuss photo shoot and these candle sticks are perfect! They will probably go on the mantle after the shoot. I love them!

      I'm so pleased!
      I would just note that it's important to follow the directions and be sure not to burn the candle too low because it is difficult to clean the wax from the candlestick.

        Seemed a perfect gift for 50th Anniversary of friends: "You've been through a lot together, and you're still standing!" They loved the look and feel of the 2 candlesticks. I was impressed with the lovely giftwrap and secure packaging of the shipment. All told: very nice experience with UG.

                I've had my eye on this candlestick for quite some time and eventually just bought it. I'm glad I did! It's a little shorter than I expected, but fits in well with my collection of candlesticks. Would love to see it in more colors and finishes!

                  I bought this as a gift for my friend's son and his bride. I had no idea of their taste or what they have. They LOVED it. It's very different and is a wonderful conversation piece.
