Cerno at Ford & Ching

By Sarah Rich
Our friends at Ford & Ching recently announced a new addition to the curated family of designers they showcase in their Los Angeles headquarters. Cerno Group, founded in 2008, consists of a young trio of friends from Laguna Beach who combine their skills in architecture, engineering and business to produce a portfolio of work from furniture up to environmental design.

The Cerno collection that can be found at Ford & Ching is as series of CNC-machined chairs and tables made from Baltic birch, much of it finished with a clear lacquer to allow the raw striations of the plywood to stand out.

The company name, Cerno, means "resolve" in Latin. Their tagline—"art resolved with science"—encapsulates their goal of using high-tech approaches to create natural, one-of-a-kind pieces. The entrepreneurial team also applies their scientific knowledge to lighting design (their portfolio includes proposed lighting design installations for the upcoming Vancouver Olympics).
