Cherner Wood Leg Stool
Design Norman Cherner, 1958
Laminated molded plywood
Made in the USA by The Cherner Chair Company
The Cherner family is proud to realize the reintroduction of 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 utilizing the technology of molding plywood. Like the 1958 original, the Cherner stool utilizes a molded plywood beech core seat with a unique construction of laminated plywood in graduated thickness with face veneers in beech or walnut. The seat and back are designed using a single shell connected by a slim and sturdy throat with slender laminated legs. Each chair is manufactured from the original drawings, molds and specifications by Cherner Chair, a Cherner family company headed by the designer's sons.
The “walnut stained walnut” option has a walnut seat that has been covered with a walnut finish, which give the core and walnut veneer a uniform appearance. The “walnut-clear stain” option has a walnut seat and has been covered with a clear finish, which emphasizes the contrast between the exposed beech core and walnut face veneer.
