Benjamin and Thomas Cherner founded The Cherner Chair Company in the final decade of the 1990’s in the United States, motivated by their dream to continue the collection of furniture designed by their father, the designer Norman Cherner. The brand was named after the most iconic piece on his arquive, the Cherner chair, designed and created for the first time in 1958. Author of different publications, Professor at Colombia University and consultant at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), both in New York, Norman Cherner became an undeniable figure in the Architecture and Design worlds. Before the launching of the brand, his pieces were exhibited solely in museums and at collectors houses.
