Designed by Norman Cherner for Plycraft in 1958, this bar stool is found in design collections throughout the world, including the Vitra Design Museum.
Like the 1958 original, the Cherner stool utilises a moulded plywood seat with a unique construction of laminated plywood in graduated thickness, from 15 plys to 5 plys at the perimeter. The seat and back are designed using a single shell connected by a slim and sturdy throat. Slender laminated legs and a chrome footrest complete the elegant design.
The Cherner Chair Company was formed in Connecticut in 1999 when the sons Benjamin and Thomas decided to bring their father’s classic, 1950s, mid-century modern furniture back into production using the original designs and specifications.
All Cherner products show timeless elegance and environmentally friendly design, using wood from sustainably managed forests.
