Norman Cherner (1920-1987) was an American designer and architect, who, like his compatriots Charles and Ray Eames and the Danish Arne Jacobsen, explored the many possibilities offered by the technique of bent plywood developed by the Finnish Alvar Aalto.
Soon, Norman Cherner imagined prefabricated plywood houses and furniture exploiting this particularly economical technology compared to traditional woodworking. It was in 1950 that Norman Cherner found his aesthetic maturity in furniture design, creating these icon of twentieth century design that is the Cherner Chair.
Created in 1958 for the Plycraft company in Lawrence (Massachusetts), these two pieces of furniture became famous in 1961 thanks to a Norman Rockwell painting "The Artist at Work", which made the cover of the Saturday Evening Post. The owner of Plycraft claimed for a long time that he had designed them himself, producing them under his name until a court of justice condemned him to pay royalties to Norman Cherner in the early 1970s.
After the death of Norman Cherner in 1987, his two sons Benjamin and Thomas founded the Cherner Chair Company in 1999 to produce the furniture of their father, at that time only visible in antique shops, museums and private homes of some privileged collectors. It is Benjamin who drew the Cherner Table in 2004, to match the chair and the armchair.
