Norman Cherner experimented in all aspects of design, including glassware, lighting, graphics and furniture. He was also one of the pioneering architects behind America's first pre-fabricated houses, which began to appear during the 1950â€™s. However, for the past 50 years, it was Cherner's molded plywood chairs that have helped make him a household name, as they have appeared in numerous different hotels, restaurants and homes around the world. In 1999, Normanâ€™s sons Benjamin and Thomas Cherner formed the Cherner Chair Company to reissue their fatherâ€™s designs. In addition to the popular molded plywood chairs, the company features new designs from Benjamin Cherner.
