Norman Cherner Style
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 pre-fabricated housing. Born in 1920, Cherner's designs are part of the iconography of mid-20th Century furniture design. Widely-known as an innovator, he studied and taught at the Columbia University Fine Arts department and was an instructor at the Museum of Modern Art in New York from 1947 to1949. Cherner's training in the Bauhaus tradition led to a lifelong exploration informed by the belief that all design stems from one discipline. His chairs, tables and case-goods have shown an enduring popularity since their introduction nearly fifty years ago. The moulded plywood Cherner Chair, has become an icon of mid-twentieth century design and can be found in galleries/design collections, as well as home-spaces, worldwide.
