Benjamin Cherner is the son of the furniture designer Norman Cherner and founder of the Cherner Chair Company. He heads the multi-disciplinary design studio Chernerdesign.
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.
