Norman Bar Stool
Mid-Century Bentwood Beauty
The Norman Bar Stool is an accurate reproduction of one of the most recognized stools of the 20th century. Originally designed in 1958 by Norman Cherner (an architect, industrial designer and teacher), this iconic bentwood bar stool was revolutionary at its time and utilized innovative plywood molding techniques which allowed for the creation of fluid / organic shapes. Norman Cherner's molded plywood seating series also included a counter stool and side chair (whose inclusion in Norman Rockwell's 1961 painting, "The Artist At Work" propelled awareness and popularity of the collection). Since then, these icons have been featured in design collections and museums all over the world.
The Norman Bar Stool preserves the definitive contours, luxurious wood grain detail and quality craftsmanship found in the original. Featuring layered bent plywood construction available in a variety of American-harvested eco-friendly wood veneers (with a built-in stainless steel footrest for additional support), the Norman Bar Stool is well-adapted to every day needs and modern sensibility in both the home and public spaces.
