About the Manufacturer
Although best known for his furniture design, Norman Cherner's work included almost all aspects of design: from graphics, glassware and lighting, to his pioneering work in prefabricated housing.
With Benjamin Cherner's decision to join with his brother Thomas to form the Cherner Chair Company in 1999, it 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.
Not only has the company reissued the molded plywood chairs, stools and tables, the Cherner Chair Company has also introduced new designs by Benjamin Cherner.
