Paul Lobel was an innovative American designer who created decorative and functional objects in various metals and glass. From jewelry and tabletop accessories to lamps and magazine racks, his designs stylistically meld the decorative flourishes of Art Deco with the increasingly popular streamlined design of the modern age. Lobel’s designs exhibit an unparalleled mastery of material and technology; experimenting with glass, he developed the Benduro process creating five distinct kinds of glass and an award-winning line of accessories and objects made in glass or glass and metal or plastic.
