Details

One of the mid-20th century's most striking examples of moulded plywood, Norman Cherner's wasp-waisted Cherner chair is the design for which he is best remembered.

Still made in the USA, the classic Cherner chair is made from walnut-veneered laminated plywood of graduated thickness which is strong and durable.

The perfect dining chair, it is built to be handed down from generation to generation. A timeless design which will complement an array of interior schemes.

Norman Cherner

American architect and designer Norman Cherner (1920-1987) studied and taught at the Columbia University Fine Arts Department and was an instructor at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City from 1947 to 1949. During this time he also explored the Bauhaus movement, embarking on a lifetime exploration of multidisciplinary design, from furniture, glassware, lighting and accessories to his pioneering work in low-cost prefabricated housing. Cherner is best known for his pioneering moulded plywood furniture. The moulded plywood Cherner Chair, designed for Plycraft in 1958, has become an icon of mid-20th century design and can be found in galleries and design collections worldwide, including the Vitra Design Museum in Germany.
