Norman Cherner, known for being one of the most original post-war American designers, was born in New York in 1920. After studying at the Columbia University, he became a teacher at the department of Fine Arts, then became an instructor at the famous Museum of Modern Art in New York in the late 1940s. 

Cherner was heavily influenced by the Bauhaus approach where all aspects of design came from one and the same discipline. In particular, he explored post-war technological innovations in the field of architecture but equally in industrial design for the designs of the famous Cherner chair in walnut and the Cherner Bar Stool.

As soon as they were released, his tables and chairs quickly became design icons. His Cherner chair, created for Plycraft in 1958, is a dazzling example. It was presented in the biggest collect of modern art in the world, including the Vitra Design Museum in Germany.
