The Lenis was inspired by the appreciation for beauty while sailing and surfing. The organic and sculptural structure is achieved by bending wood stringers over a series of bulkheads. The balance between the curved fluidity of its lines and the twisting movement is a deviation from the usual rectilinear forms yet still encompasses the essence and nature of our designs.
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.
