Ibrahimovic slotted home his 42nd goal this season in all competitions from the edge of the area with 15 minutes left after PSG had struggled to create chances.
Lorient wasted a good opportunity to take the lead just three minutes before Ibrahimovic's opener when Benjamin Moukandjo lost his duel with PSG goalkeeper Salvatore Sirigu.
Already crowned French champion for a fourth straight time, PSG is aiming to replicate the domestic treble it achieved last season. Laurent Blanc's team will take on Lille in Saturday's League Cup final.
