Do you know the contentious history of the Cherner Chair? I didn’t, but I’m glad Cherner’s sons revived their father’s designs, and created the variation you see above. Task chairs often look terrible, especially with today’s advanced ergonomic technology, and the simplicity of such classic lines when applied to an office/desk area seating option is enormously appealing. Now that we’ve discussed its aesthetic appeal, someone just needs to test out how comfortable this chair may or may not be after a few hours’ work.
