The Cherner Chair Company is the sole licensor of Norman Cherner and Benjamin Cherner designs. Cherner Chair products are made in the USA and available worldwide.

Norman Cherner
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 outside New York City. These homes were examples of this total design concept and included affordable furniture designed specifically for these low-cost modular dwellings. Norman Cherner's furniture designs include the "multi-flex" modular storage system, the "Konwiser Line" of furniture and lighting, and molded plywood seating for Plycraft which he designed in 1958. The molded plywood ‘Cherner Chair' became his most recognized design and is found in furniture collections worldwide. In addition to Plycraft, Norman Cherner created designs for some of America's most prominent furniture manufacturers.

Benjamin Cherner
An architect and industrial designer, Benjamin Cherner is the son of the furniture designer Norman Cherner. He heads the New York based design division of the Cherner Chair Company. Continuing his father‘s tradition of total design, he is recognized for his architectural, product and graphic designs.
