Designer: Norman Cherner
Norman Cherner studied and taught at the Columbia University Fine Arts Department and was an instructor at the Museum of Modern Art in New York from 1947 to 1949. At the same time he also began his practice, embarking on a lifetime exploration of multidisciplinary design. Although best known for his furniture design, his work included almost all aspects of design: from graphics, glassware and lighting, to his pioneering work in prefabricated housing.
Art: Cherner Side Chair
The Cherner family is proud to realize the reintroduction of the famed "Cherner Chair". Designed by Norman Cherner for Plycraft in 1958, this chair is found in design collections throughout the world, including the Vitra Design Museum.
The Cherner Chair is still regarded as one of the most dramatic designs utilizing the technology of molding plywood. Like the 1958 original, the Cherner armchair utilizes a molded plywood beech core seat with a unique construction of laminated plywood in graduated thickness with face veneers in beech or walnut. Each chair is manufactured from the original drawings, molds and specifications by Cherner Chair, a Cherner family company headed by the designer's sons.
