An iconic piece of design from the American mid century period, this is probably one of the most beautiful sculptural chairs available.
Born in Brooklyn New York in 1920, Norman Cherner's designs are part of the iconography of mid-20th Century furniture design. He is recognised as one of the most original of a generation of designers that explored post-war technological innovations in architecture and industrial design. He studied and taught at the Columbia University Fine Arts department and was an instructor at the Museum of Modern Art in New York from 1947-1949. Cherner's training in the Bauhaus tradition led to a lifelong exploration informed by the belief that all design stems from one discipline.
