Tenon Chair

tenon chair

Design Jay Novak, 2004
Maple, walnut or rosewood veneer
Made in USA by Modernica

Innovative, fluid and meticulous are words used to describe the Tenon series. Created of four separate pieces, the Tenon chair looks as fluid as one - achieving an elegant, yet relaxed design. One must sit in a Tenon chair to understand its subtle comfort. Meticulous care was taken adjusting the design to have exactly the best angle at which to sit and face a table.

Constructed with 26 layers of the highest-quality hardwoods, the strength and resilience of the Tenon chair is achieved with omni-directional connections of the plywood and Modernica's own unique blind mortise and tenon joint design. This combination creates seamless joints that are capable of absorbing any stresses that are placed upon the chair, thus keeping it solid and stable through the years.

The Case Study Tenon series is available in a rosewood veneer, North American walnut veneer, and a maple veneer. The maple veneer has a classic lacquer finish. The rosewood and walnut veneers have a clear satin lacquer finish. Optional seat pad also available, please call for details.

Modernica’s first official year as a furniture manufacturer came in 1989, after Frank and Jay Novak purchased 12,000 discarded plastic shell chairs and created bases and shock mounts for them. The shells had been discarded by Century Plastics, after Herman Miller discontinued their production of fiberglass chairs. Modernica founded their company on the heels of the North American Modernist movement and perpetuated the idea of the burgeoning modernist California lifestyle.
