The Aeris was a collaboration with New York based designer Frank Carfaro of Desiron. The organic and often wild swirls of walnut grain are interrupted by rigorous slits and inlays that punctuate each face to create a beautiful juxtaposition, making each fixture unique. The glow of the illuminated wood seen through the cut slits creates a rich composition of light and shadow.
Cerno designs and manufacturers all of their modern lighting in-house at their Southern California headquarters.
The company was founded in 2009 by three lifelong friends Bret Englander, Daniel Wacholder, and Nick Sheridan. At the core of Cerno is a friendship and shared love for modern design.
Our philosophy is grounded in the utmost respect for the materials we use, the craftsmanship that goes into our products, and our entire team.
