I have a modernist aesthetic

I never used wallpaper, shag pile or lava lamps.  I still find carpet hard to use !

The Cherner Chair Company @ dedece

Norman Cherner (1920-1987) was truly a renaissance man of the midcentury-modern movement — his devotion to teaching, prefabrication and hands-on production probably handicapped him in the race to get into the pantheon of mid century greats.

Cherner is recognized as one of the most original of a generation of designers that explored post-war technological innovations in industrial design and architecture.

Our primary environmental philosophy is that you will never find a Cherner Chair product in a landfill – the perfect dining chair, it is built to be handed down from generation to generation !!!

In the evolving workplace, Activity Spaces are ‘go to’ spaces accessible to everyone for everything from focused, individual work through large community gatherings

Knoll offers numerous solutions for appropriately scaled activity spaces, offering refuge for one or two, enclaves for three or four, team meeting spaces for five to eight members of a team, and larger assembly and community spaces.
