Designed by Norman Cherner, 1958
The 1958 moulded plywood side chair by Norman Cherner found in design collections worldwide, is now available to a new generation of furniture collectors. Reissued in exacting detail from the original drawings and moulds, the side chair complements the armchair in a dining setting. Like the original, made entirely in the U.S.A.
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. Educated in the Bauhaus tradition of interdisciplinary design, he became interested in housing as industrial design. His first houses were built in 1948 for a cooperative housing development in Ramapo, NY. These homes were examples of this total design concept and included affordable furniture designed specifically for these low-cost modular dwellings.
The moulded plywood side chair is the companion to the Cherner armchair. The perfect dining chair, it is strong, lightweight and built to be handed down from generation to generation. The Cherner Chair Company has reissued the side chair from Norman Cherner’s original drawings and moulds. Like the original these are still made in the U.S.A.
The beech chair has a natural finish and a clear top coat where the natural variations in the colour and the grain of the wood are clearly visible. No stain or colour enhancements are used.
