Cherner Classic Walnut Armchair

£1,104.00

Description

The 1958 moulded plywood armchair by Norman Cherner is an icon of mid-century furniture design, showcased in exhibitions worldwide, including the Vitra Design Museum in Germany.

Reissued in exacting detail from Cherner’s original drawings, the armchair is the perfect synthesis of moulded plywood and a solid bent wood construction: structurally robust yet elegantly lightweight.

Crafted entirely in the USA, Cherner’s collection of walnut-veneered, ‘wasp-waisted’ furniture includes a side chair, bar stool and complementary dining table.

American architect and designer 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 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. Best-known for the moulded plywood seating he created for Plycraft, Cherner was an innovative and unassuming hero of modern design.
