Although a pioneer in prefab housing, Norman Cherner is best known for the molded plywood seating line he created for the manufacturer Plycraft, which he ultimately sued the company over. After telling Cherner that his design for what is now known as the Cherner Chair (1958) had been scrapped, Plycrafts owner continued to produce it, claiming himself as the designer. The Chairs popularity soared when it appeared in Norman Rockwells 1961 painting The Artist at Work on the cover of the Saturday Evening Post . Cherner sued, and while Plycraft agreed to pay Cherner royalties, the line was out of production by the early 1970s. In 1999, Cherners sons formed the Cherner Chair Company to revive the designs and produce them as their father originally intended. Constructed of laminated plywood of graduating thicknesses, from 5 ply at the perimeter edge of the seat to 15 ply at the slender waist, the Cherner Chair possesses exceptional structural strength and dramatic sculptural beauty. This is the authentic Cherner Chair produced by the Cherner Chair Company. Cherner Chair is a licensed trademark of Cherner Chair Company. Made in U.S.A.
