Norman Cherner is recognized as one of the most original of a generation of designers that explored post-war technological innovations in industrial design and architecture. His Cherner Chair (1958) is one of the most successful examples of mid-century molded plywood seating, and has recently been reissued from the original molds and drawings by ChernerÂ’s sons. Constructed of laminated plywood of graduating thicknesses-from 15 ply at the slender waist to five ply at the perimeter edge of the seat-the design possesses exceptional structural strength and dramatic sculptural beauty. Comfortable and elegant, the Cherner Chair is one of the most collectible of mid-century furniture designs and can be found in design collections throughout the world. Made in U.S.A.
