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 1950ís. 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, Normanís sons Benjamin and Thomas Cherner formed the Cherner Chair Company to reissue their fatherís designs. In addition to the popular molded plywood chairs, the company features new designs from Benjamin Cherner.
