Design Norman Cherner, 1958
The Cherner family is proud to reintroduce the famed "Cherner Chair". Designed by Norman Cherner for Plycraft in 1958, this chair is found in design collections throughout the world, including the Vitra Design Museum.
The Cherner Chair is still regarded as one of the most dramatic designs utilising the technology of moulding plywood. Like the 1958 original, the Cherner armchair utilises a moulded plywood beech core seat with a unique construction of laminated plywood in graduated thickness with face veneers in beech or walnut. The graceful and sweeping arms are made of solid beech or walnut which gives the chair additional strength and beauty. Each chair is manufactured from the original drawings, moulds and specifications by Cherner Chair, a Cherner family company headed by the designer's sons.
The "classic stained walnut" options have a stain applied to both the beech core and the walnut face veneer which gives the product a uniform walnut colour (very little contrast in colour between the beech core and the walnut veneer). The "natural clear stained walnut" option have only a clear finish applied, which emphasizes the contrast between the exposed beech core and walnut face veneer.
