Armchair by Norman Cherner Reissued

Cherner Chair Black against black

I like this black against black photo I found at Velocity’s site [ed: which is closed now]

Another famous chair being reissued: The Norman Cherner Chair. Just like the (grand)children of Edwin Lutyens and Gerrit Rietveld the second generation of Cherners started to re issue their forebears’ designs:

After listening to countless requests from fellow Architects to see his father’s designs reissued, Benjamin decided to join with his brother Thomas to form the Cherner Chair Company in 1999. Since then the Cherner Chair Company has brought back into production many of Norman Cherner’s most popular designs. Utilizing his original drawings and specifications, the reissued designs are manufactured with the same attention to detail found in the original hand made classics. Cherner Chair products are now distributed through dealers worldwide.

In addition to reissuing the molded plywood chairs, stools and tables, The Cherner Chair Company has introduced new designs by Benjamin Cherner.

The Cherner Chair Company is the sole licensor of Norman Cherner and Benjamin Cherner designs.

Slender, elegant, and sculptural, these occasional chairs by Norman Cherner are certified midcentury classics. They look to be in excellent condition, and have been newly reupholstered with white vinyl — though you could replace it with the fabric of your choice.
