The “Peg and Hole” Flat-Pack Chair from Paul Loebach

Flat-pack furniture that requires neither an allen key nor a set of indecipherable instructions, designer Paul Loebach presented his “Peg and Hole” birch wood chair at New York Design Week. Described as “charming and childlike in its purity” the eight piece pack, created with Computer Numerically Controlled (CNC) technology, slots together in the simplest formation, the system inspired by the kind of plastic barricades you’d find around roadworks. Loebach’s design stems from a desire to create contemporary products that respond to needs of the consumers, so with the demand for easily transportable furniture, the flat-pack system seemed the obvious choice.
