Cherner Chair

After listening to countless requests from fellow architects to see his father’s designs reissued, Benjamin decided to join with his brother Thomas to form the Cherner Chair Company in 1999. Since then the Cherner Chair Company has brought back into production many of Norman Cherner’s most popular designs. Utilizing his original drawings and specifications, the reissued designs are manufactured with the same attention to detail found in the original hand-made classics. In addition to reissuing the molded plywood chairs, stools and tables, The Cherner Chair Company has introduced new designs by Benjamin Cherner.

Designer
Cherner Task Chair with Arms Designed by:
  • Norman Cherner , 1958
Norman Cherner

Norman Cherner

USA, 1920 – 1987

Born in Brooklyn New York in 1920, Norman Cherner’s designs are part of the iconography of mid-20th century furniture design. He studied and taught at Columbia University’s Fine Arts department and was an instructor at the Museum of Modern Art in New York from 1947-1949. Cherner’s training in the Bauhaus tradition led to a lifelong exploration informed by the belief that all design stems from one discipline. His chairs, tables and case goods have shown an enduring popularity since their introduction nearly fifty years ago.

Cherner is best known for the molded plywood seating line he created for Plycraft, a manufacturing company in Massachusetts. After telling Cherner that his 1958 design for what is now known as the Cherner Chair had been scrapped, Plycraft’s owner continued to produce it, claiming himself as the designer. Soon after, the chair’s popularity was heightened when it appeared in Norman Rockwell’s 1961 painting, “The Artist at Work” on the cover of the Saturday Evening Post. Cherner sued the company, and Plycraft agreed to pay Cherner royalties, yet the whole seating line was out of production by the early 1970s.

For almost 20 years, Cherner’s seating was rarely seen outside of galleries, museums and the living rooms of few lucky collectors. This all changed in 1999, when Cherner’s sons, Benjamin and Thomas, formed the Cherner Chair Company to revive the designs and produce them as their father originally intended. The repeated success of chairs inspired Benjamin, an architect and designer in his own right, to create a coordinating table, the Cherner Table in 2004.
