Cherner chair at QuartoSala


Designed in 1958, the Cherner Chair is named after its creator, the architect and designer Norman Cherner, an innovator in plywood and in affordable design. 

And indeed, the chair features in a 1961 painting by Norman Rockwell, “The Artist at Work”. Art within Art.

Cherner 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 to 1949. In both of these institutions he explored the Bauhaus movement, embarking on a lifetime exploration of multidisciplinary design, from furniture, shelving, glassware, lighting, and even toys.

The Cherner chair combines lightweightness with strength, and its wood-molding technique creates sculptural and comfortable seating.

Our curation of 'The Cherner Chair Company' brand to integrate our catalogue responds to a growing demand for sophistication and enhancement of interior and outdoor environments.

QuartoSala has the exclusive representation of the Cherner Chair, which is on display for the first time in Lisbon, at our Rua do Século store.
