Design by Norman Cherner, 1958. Made in the U.S.A. by The Cherner Chair Company. Norman Cherner's molded plywood side chair is the essential companion to the classic Cherner Armchair. The perfect dining chair, it is built to be handed down from generation to generation. The seat is made from laminated plywood of graduated thickness, from 15 plys to 5 plys at the thin edge of the shell. Reissued in exacting detail from the original drawings and molds, the Cherner Side Chair is strong, lightweight, and versatile. Available in all standard Cherner finishes. The Cherner Chair Company is committed to minimizing the environmental impact of the manufacturing process in a number of ways, including using finishes that don't pollute the air. A completely water-based veneer finishing system is used on all Cherner products yielding greater color consistency and fewer VOCs. The Cherner Side Chair, as well as all Cherner products, is manufactured with attention to detail and hand assembled from woods collected from sustainably managed forests and with 100% recyclable steel with 25% recycled content.
