Base & Frame Finish
The Aeron's Base and Frame Finishes blend both classic and contemporary influences for a unique appearance that fits in wherever it's used. A variety of base-and-frame finishes complement the Pellicle material, with the most common finish option being the graphite base.

Your choice of base/frame finish will affect which Pellicle fabrics are available.

Classic Carbon
Classic Lead
Tuxedo Blue Black
Tuxedo Grey Black
Waves Carbon

Upholstery   Click For More Info
Perhaps the most distinctive aspect of the Aeron Chair is its Pellicle material. Depending upon the Base and Frame options selected, you can choose from a large assortment of Pellicle materials.

When choosing your upholstery color, you should know that there are some upholstery/frame combinations that aren't available. Quartz, Zinc, and White Gold upholsteries are only available with the Titanium frame. The rest of the colors are available with the Graphite or Polished Aluminum frames.

Please note:  There is no functional difference between Classic and the more expensive Waves and Tuxedo Pellicles. Waves and Tuxedo cost more because of aesthetics. They sure are good looking though.
Arms   Click For More Info
Aeron comes in your choice of Fixed Arms (no adjustments) or Fully-Adjustable Arms (moves arms up to 4" vertically and allows you to pivot the armpads 15 degrees outward and 17.5 degrees inward). You can also configure your Aeron with no arms for added flexibility and mobility while you're seated.
Armpad Finish   Click For More Info
Standard non-upholstered arm pads are molded, textured, flexible vinyl. The Aeron chair's arm pads are also available with supple leather upholstery. If you're feeling frisky, there are many other leather color options aside from the frame-matching options listed here. Please give us a call at 888-467-6278 to learn more about available color options.

Aeron Chair Size AAeron Chair Size BAeron Chair Size C
The Aeron Chair comes in small, medium, and large sizes (A, B, and C). Click here for a full version of the size chart.

The size chart is your guide to finding which size is right for you. If you fall into the B/C category and you have long legs, choose size C; you'll want the deeper seat. If you have short legs, go with a B, since the size C front seat edge will dig into the back of your calves (which will outweigh the benefit of the added 1.5" width you get with a size C).

Also, if you fall into the B/C category, have a long torso, and lean back a lot while sitting, the extra 3" you gain in the height of the back with a size C will benefit you.
Tilt Adjustment   Click For More Info
Aeron Chair Standard Tilt Aeron Chair Tilt Limiter
All Aeron chairs, regardless of tilt option selected, have a knob that allows you to set the tension of leaning back to respond based on your body weight. Standard tilt has only this adjustment.

The tilt limiter and seat angle option adds two other features. The limiter allows you to lock the back so it doesn't recline and also provides 3 settings between locked and all the way back so you can partially recline. If you lean back a lot or want to be more ergonomic and take pressure off your spine by distributing weight from the seat to the back (this is what leaning back does), the tilt limiter will come in handy to take pressure off your spine and encourage you to lean back more.

The seat angle adjustment allows you to change the seat angle (the back moves forward with it) from horizontal to a 5 degree forward tilt. This feature is good for you taskers who like to lean forward when you work.

Please note: folks that opt for the standard tilt end up exchanging their chair for one with the tilt limiter and seat angle more times than you would imagine. It is the #1 reason for return/exchange on the Aeron chair. When in doubt, choose this better option as you can't add it later.
Lumbar Support   Click For More Info
Aeron Chair Adjustable Lumbar SupportAeron Chair Posture Fit
Back support options for the Aeron include an adjustable lumbar support system or PostureFit lumbar support on models with tilt limiter and seat angle adjustment. The PostureFit support provides a custom fit in the lower back area below the beltline, which helps achieve healthier posture and improves lower back comfort. The level of support can be adjusted with a lever.
Caster Type   Click For More Info
Depending on where you will use your Mirra2 Chair, our Smart Designer provides casters that suit your needs. Our selection includes:

Carpet Casters:
Pretty self-explanatory. Hard plastic that work pretty well on carpet.

Hard Floor Casters:
Softer (they have a polyurethane tread), so they get better traction on hard surfaces, and don't make loud noises when rolling around like the harder ones would.

Braking Casters:
A spring in the caster compresses when the user is in the chair. This disengages the braking mechanism, allowing the chair to roll. When the user leaves the chair, the spring expands and engages the brake so the chair won't roll easily.

All casters are 2.5" diameter.

The Aeron Chair comes in a ready-to-assemble version that's easy to put together and move around, or a fully-assembled version for total convenience.

Herman Miller Aeron Chair
designed by Don Chadwick and Bill Stumpf


Herman Miller Aeron ChairAt A Glance:
Aeron is the godfather of the ergonomic office chair revolution. Designed by Bill Stumpf and released in the 90s, it became known as the dot.com chair. A younger, more tech savvy group of people had found an office chair of their own. To this day, the Aeron remains one of the best ergonomic chairs you can buy. It was the first, and it's still one of the best. Aeron is available in 3 sizes (chart) to best suit you.

What's To Like:
The Aeron Chair was described as "alien-looking" by some test groups when it first debuted. But they didn't realize those crazy kids wanted just that. The Aeron is unique to say the least, and comfortable and supportive to boot. It's also the first of its kind, so it scores originality points.

What's Not to Like:
If you're a larger person, there is a small flaw in the Aeron. The seat is edged with a curving hard plastic, and at the left and right edge it is upturned - that can be uncomfortable for some. Otherwise, this is a pretty sensational chair.

The Bottom Line:
A cutting-edge look and a serious commitment to comfort and support, all from the first of the breed. Bill Stumpf would go on to make the Embody Chair, but surpassing his original creation has often proved impossible for even the best ergonomic designers.

Customer Rating

For almost twenty years, people who work in offices have benefited from the Aeron Chair by Herman Miller. From the beginning, its ergonomic design and outstanding features destined it for popularity and, ultimately, a place in history. Sleek, stylish, shapely, and smart, the Aeron Chair offers engineered support that means comfort and promotes efficiency, productivity, and safety.

Considering the Aeron for your office? Call our extra-helpful, problem-solving sales team at 888-476-6278 if you have any questions at all.

Today, this chair is an emblem of informed style. Graceful and symmetrical, it matches almost any office decor, yet it's distinctive in every setting, like a work of art. The look is classic and modern at once, with handsome colors and tones that indicate relaxed and confident professionalism. The design of the Herman Miller Aeron Chair uses no foam or stuffing, only an elemental palette of steel, leather, and molded plastic. Bases and frames are available in color combinations including graphite, titanium, smoke, and aluminum, with even more choices for the color of the upholstery. To those who use this chair, the allure is clear from the outset. And it only increases.

Individual choice is a hallmark of the Aeron Chair by Herman Miller. The diversity inherent in the human body - large, small, round, lean - was a deeply understood idea for the chair's original designers, who took care to ensure that the chair features no straight lines or edges. Select from three available chair sizes to accommodate people from petite to husky. Choose between models with various reclining and forward tilt features. Pick casters with varying traction and power that keeps the Aeron chair rolling smoothly on everything from hard wood to deep plush carpet.

Unlike traditional office chairs, the Herman Miller Aeron Chair authentically promotes the health of the user - so much so, in fact, that a great many buyers seek the out this chair simply for that one benefit. Taking into account the physical contours and natural mathematics of the body, the chair respects pivot points at the hips, knees, and ankles, distributing typical stresses of movement throughout the limbs and trunk to alleviate detrimental effects.

The chair's seat features a "waterfall" front, curving forward and downward to allow the thighs to rest easily instead of folding over a hard edge. Other design features assist with posture and circulation. Where some traditional chairs can actually contribute to fatigue, the Aeron Chair helps to preserve and increase the energy you bring to your work.

Aeron Chair Size Chart

The Aeron Chair is available in three sizes. Click here to see a larger version of this sizing chart to see what size is right for you.

The Aeron Chair adjusts with a flexibility and suppleness that mirror the capability of the person sitting in it. Conceived as optimally adaptable for multiple users, it offers a number of separate features that the user can change as desired -- and to a precise degree. These include the position of the arms, the tilt of the seat, the height of the seat, and the level of lumbar support. Set these features, and you'll find the chair responds to your movements with a fluid maneuverability. If it's your first time in an Aeron Chair, you'll find it a redefinition of the way a seat and a seated body can work together.

The Herman Miller Aeron Chair is designed and built on ergonomic principles, focused on the variability of weight and structure in the human figure - and on how the individual body actually operates in a seated position. Limitless variety in the lengths of limbs and the positions of elbows and hips means that safe and effective long-term sitting depend on adaptable design. The Aeron Chair cradles and supports your body in continual comfort.

The strong, supportive, and breathable Pellicle mesh fabric of the backrest and seat is also light and permeable, which helps to regulate temperatures and allows you to stay cool, dry, and extra comfortable. None of the disagreeable extra warmth and moisture that can build up with conventional chairs is present with the Aeron Chair by Herman Miller.

The fabric fits your form, which means there's far less pressure at the expected points along your body. Modern office work often means sitting for long periods; this chair lets you do that, minimizing the part of your concentration that must go your physical comfort, and letting you direct your mind instead to getting things done efficiently, without tiring.

The Aeron chair is the archetype of the Herman Miller company's tradition of innovation, joining functionality with elegance. Today, in retrospect, the chair's design is unsurprising. That's because, when it appeared, it defined the future of office chairs. The chair's look and feel are a definitive example of forward thinking that came to fruition - and became the standard for the industry. In fact, if imitation is flattery, then the Aeron Chair is complimented every day by offices around the globe.

Most of the material used in building each chair is recycled, and most can be recycled again (if you can bear to part with the chair).

People who've owned the chair for years still say they love it. Herman Miller's 12-year warranty for the Aeron Chair demonstrates the company's faith in the product. But the company's values are about more than the just the chair. They're about commitment to long-term benefits for customers, commitment to a style of work, and belief in a way of being.

About the Manufacturer


Herman Miller Authorized Retailer

Herman Miller for the Home


Herman Miller has become one, if not the premiere name in the modern classics furniture industry. With its invention and offering of the Aeron Chair and many other favorites, Herman Miller has become synonymous with providing distinct solutions for every part of the home and office.

Herman Miller has collaborated with iconic designers like George Nelson, Isamu Noguchi, Bill Stumpf, Jeff Weber, Don Chadwick, and Charles & Ray Eames to provide a offering that has stood the test of time, becoming some of the most well-known and well-received furniture collections to date.



Designer


Bill StumpfBill Stumpf
Stumpf's association with Herman Miller began in 1970 when he joined the staff of the Herman Miller Research Corporation. After establishing his own firm in 1972, Stumpf created the Ergon chair, the first ergonomic work chair. Later, in collaboration with Don Chadwick, he produced the groundbreaking Equa and iconic Aeron chairs. He also was principal designer for the Ethospace system. "I enjoy myself, and I do it through design," Stumpf declared in an interview a few years ago.

"I love beauty, and I love the availability of beautiful things and useful things immediately around me." During his lifetime Stumpf- a key figure in Herman Miller's transformation into a research-based, problem-solving innovator- received numerous awards for this work. Most recently, he was named the winner of the 2006 National Design Award in Product Design, an award presented posthumously by the Smithsonian's Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum. Stumpf died in 2006.


Don ChadwickDon Chadwick
Chadwick's love for furniture design goes back to his childhood, when his cabinetmaker grandfather taught him how to use the tools of the trade--hand tools that required skill, precision, and patience. Later, unlike the other industrial design students at UCLA in the mid-1950s, he focused on furniture. And after hearing a Charles and Ray Eames lecture there, Chadwick was convinced: Furniture offered designers, even industrial designers, the chance to use materials in new, innovative ways--and to make a "real difference" in people's lives.

"Most industrial designers don't take furniture design seriously," he says. "They're not trained to get into that kind of detail. It's too personal, too much like surgery. And besides, you have to be in love with this kind of work." He attributes at least some of this optimism to the "LA recklessness" he's experienced as a lifelong resident of Southern California. "There's less fear of failure out here, so people are more apt to take risks. It's fertile ground for innovation." For over two decades now, Chadwick has had a partner in recklessness. "Herman Miller isn't afraid to take chances on new ideas. That's why the company's been successful for so long, and that's one reason why it's challenging to work for them."

Design Story


In 2000, Herman Miller established a relationship with Dr. Brock Walker, a former chiropractor and owner of a renowned back pain clinic, and who was now a consultant for various ergonomic industries, including the military, racing and aerospace corporations.

Dr. Walker: "I recognized a genuine passion and enthusiasm on Herman Miller's part in exploring emerging seating technologies for its customer base." So he paired with designers Bill Stumpf and Don Chadwick to work on the Aeron chair, with the goal of making Aeron the most comfortable and supportive chair on the market. To accomplish this, they came up with PostureFit.
Aeron Chair Tilt Limiter
Convenient tilt controls
Bill Dowell, head of Project Research at Herman Miller, on why PostureFit became so important to the design of the Aeron chair: "Our research shows that workers tend sit in a forward-leaning position, that is, slouch, during much of their day. This contributes to fatigue, backaches, headaches, and sometimes more serious health problems on the job."

"Until we met Brock, I hadn't seen a solution that promotes a healthy posture and addresses what we call the 'void,' that area behind the beltline between the person and the chair back. Brock's automotive and aerospace work in seating confirmed how critical it is to support this area."
Aeron Chair Lumbar Support
Superior lumbar back support
Unlike many office chairs that are designed to correct posture and straighten the spine, the Aeron chair with PostureFit was made to support normative sitting. So instead of forcing the back into an uncomfortable line, it supports it in the most comfortable position for as long as needed. Aeron had taken a huge step forward, according to designer Bill Stumpf: "Like Aeron, PostureFit's design reflects what we are learning about the human torso. In and of itself, I think PostureFit represents a positive, evolutionary, and exciting step forward. It's leading the next wave of ergonomics." Aeron Chair Adjustable Arms
Pivoting, adjustable arms



Design


Distinctive, Pioneering, Iconic. The Aeron Chair by Herman Miller is the office chair that defines all three. Created at Herman Miller by legendary designers Don Chadwick and Bill Stumpf, the Aeron Chair broke the mold, as well as all the rules. A commercial and artistic triumph, the Aeron Chair managed the unthinkable feat of being the best selling office chair of all time, as well as a featured piece in the Museum of Modern Art. It's also environmentally sustainable and constructed and planned to be the greenest most responsible chair ever. Buy the Aeron Chair today.

At the time of it's release, the Aeron chair was funny looking. It was sleek, devoid of foam or stuffing, and featured several design elements radically different from the average office chair. The Aeron chair's seat curved upwards at the edges, cradling the hips and creating a comfort pocket for the user. The lip of the seat curved downward, saving thighs from the wear and tear of eight-hour days at the desk, and increasing user circulation. The back of the chair didn't subscribe to straight lines either; it had been designed for support, curving inward to the small of the back then fanning out to the shoulders, keeping posture erect and comfort intact.

Aeron wasn't only newfangled; it was a handsome office chair with a groundbreaking design and a mathicng performance that's won it numerous design awards. Elegant steel structure supporting molded plastic, with leather accents on the arms. Aeron swiveled, bent, adjusted, and generally molded itself to the worker, the office, the busy day. The Aeron chair pulled off the feat of being unmistakably unique and endlessly adaptive, and over time it has become a pop culture icon. Get distinctive. Design and buy an Aeron today.

Shaped like a butterfly, PostureFit integrates seamlessly into the Aeron design, improving rather than marring it's artistic integrity.

PostureFit isn't the only design element pushing the Aeron chair to the cutting edge of ergonomic research; the first chair to get rid of the foam and padding was designed at every inch to be the most comfortable, intuitive, adaptable chair possible. The Aeron has a wide back contoured to take pressure off the spine, armrests angled for maximum comfort and natural positioning, and the Kinemat tilt system, which allows all of your joints to pivot, recline and lean naturally and easily. The Aeron chair isn't just a place to sit; it's a dialogue between your body and design that results in a kind of partner at work.

The pioneering spirit exhibited by Chadwick & Bill Stumpf isn't just about Aeron's ergonomics. Displayed in the Museum of Modern Art, the Aeron chair by Herman Miller broke all the rules of design and still managed to be beautiful, comfortable, and functional. Aeron is one of the world's only recognizable office chairs, representing taste, quality, beauty, excellence. The sloping arm rests, the curved and contoured backing, the flexing seat with a waterfall front, the material: the Aeron chair was a revolution. Be pioneering. Buy an Aeron today.

Aeron Chair Employee ReviewSmart Furniture Employee Review
Working at Smart Furniture is kind of like playing musical chairs. You can't ever assume that what you're sitting in today will be what you're sitting in tomorrow. We shuffle chairs around to learn about them; it creates a nice communal feel around the office and gives us an excuse to steal each other's chairs pretty much whenever we please.

And so today, I find myself sitting in the Aeron Chair. Seeing as how this is pretty much the most famous office chair ever created, I'm surprised that it's taken this long for me to land one. This particular version I'm sitting in is a size B, which seems to fit me just fine as I'm 5'11 and skinny; it has leather armpads (nice), and the PostureFit Lumbar Support option. Read more...

First Impressions
I was pretty excited the day I trekked over to Smart Furniture to pick up the Aeron Chair for review. For months I'd been sitting in a chair with rigid arms and backing and a metal bar across the front of the seat -- needless to say, I was looking forward to a change. When Christie wheeled the Aeron Chair out to my car, I knew I was in for one. Thick, wide armrests. A lip that fell off at the edge of the chair, and a weird looking material, almost sheer, that made up the seat and back of the chair, and looked like it would provide some give and take. The chair was a little smaller than I'd imagined, and at the same time more substantial. I'd expected thin materials and an extremely light chair, but Aeron had heft. I lifted it into my trunk, already looking forward to shoving my old chair down the stairs.

The X Factor
The Aeron Chair is porous, allowing air to pass through the back and seat. That means no heat build up, which can cause sweating and discomfort. Again, major improvement over my old chair.

Durability
Having only used the chair for about a week, it's hard to know how durable it is. But with a 12 year warranty from Herman Miller and all that excellent craftsmanship behind the design, you can be confident it'll take what you dish out.

The Bottom Line
The Aeron is a modern classic for a reason. It's comfortable, it's cool looking, and it's designed very very well. The slight drawbacks and flaws that exist are more than compensated for by all the great things the chair has to offer. For those on a budget, the Aeron Chair is still a great value compared to the new generation of similar-priced chairs riding the Aeron's coattails.

I first ordered a diffrient world chair (both to save some $$ and to be environmentally responsible) - and I love it up to about the 8 hour point - then it would start to get annoying. I am comfortable in this chair for marathon periods. I highly recommend it.

I use the various hight and tilt adjustments when I am working on design, drawing, animation, and video projects.

                I bought an Aeron armless mainly because I planned on playing guitar in the chair. It's extremely comfortable but not perfect for guitar playing because of the sides that stick out. If you don't plan on guitar playing I wouldn't recommend armless.

                  This is my second Aeron chair. First was for home a few years ago. Now for the office. Same color/option combination: Aeron Chair, Ready to Assemble, Std. Height, Tilt Limiter & Seat Angle, Adj Lumbar, Fully Adj Arms, Black Leather Armpads, Size C, Polished Aluminum Base, Graphite Frame, Hard Floor & Carpet Caster, Pellicle Tuxedo Grey Black Fabric.

                  Only difference vs home chair is my leather armrests which I much say are fantastic and I wish I had them for my home chair now. Oh well.

                  The chair does creak a bit after some use. Annoying but not enough for me to try to fix it.

                  Smartfurniture is a great place to order Herman Miller products. I will keep in mind for other brands as well.

                  Comments about Herman Miller Aeron Chair:

                  I have tried all of the top of the line chairs (herman miller's, steelcase's, etc) and the Aeron is the only one that feels ultra comfortable for me.

                  The item last 2 stars because I am having the SAME problem as another reviewer here (By John from Durham NC). Armrests are both squeaking. Emailed Smartfurniture and they took care of it almost immediately, shipping a replacement-- all prepaid. Unfortunately, after 2 weeks, the replacement is having the SAME problem -- squeaky armrests. I emailed Smartfurniture.com again, but I am at a loss. Their service has been exemplary, but I do not like having both arms squeak on such an expensive item :(

                    I really like the chair so far, and my back pain from a previous chair has gone. I also like that I can choose armless chair because I don't really need arms.

                          Stays comfortable on long days in the seat. Excellent chair. Performs as advertised. Pay attention to sizing and adjustment instructions. Recommend fully-assembled delivery option. Only reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 is price. Expensive.

                                        The Aeron is the perfect desk chair. With my previous chairs, I would set at the computer for several hours and get up with a very sore back. This chair has saved my back. The chair is well constructed and stylish. I selected the chair based on many positive comments. The only problem that I've had with the chair is the adjustable lumbar support. It does help my back, but I don't think the support which slides along the back of the chair was well engineered. It works, but it could have been better designed. This shouldn't stop anyone from buying this wonderful chair.

                                        Service and delivery comments:

                                        The delivery was very prompt, and the chair arrived in great condition. I did make a change in my original order because the original color I ordered had to be backordered. The customer service team changed my order promptly; they were great. The chair was very easy to put together; it took about 10 minutes with the included tool.

                                            I ran across this chair when on the Microsoft Campus in Redmond WA. Liked it so much that I bought one for myself. Have not been disappointed, very comfortable, back never get tired, do not get sweaty and stick to chair in the summer. So I bought a second one for the receptionist. Just a great chair.

                                                      I was excited to get this chair because I have a mesh chair from a local office store that I like. I needed a chair that was more adjustable because I want to use it for extended periods of cross stitching as well as office work. I ordered the C chair because the chart said that is what I need. I found the chair pretty uncomfortable. I have had it for 2 days and tried it out. I am now sitting on my much cheaper chair from office store because my back muscles and hips hurt (from the chair) and the Aeron chair made my rear and legs numb. I am not someone who typically has problems with pain, but I do right now!

                                                      I will say though that it does have great adjustments for doing cross stitch with a floor stand. I wish it would have worked out. For anyone looking at the chair for this purpose, it is worth a try since so many other people love it!

It's a really good chair, but the B-medium is a bit on the small side. For my home office I got the C-large size and I love it. I'm 6'1" 195 lbs, and I would recommend getting the large size to anyone that is near or borderline to the C-large size on the sizing chart.

                                                                  Like a lot of people who purchase the Herman Miller Aeron, I spend my day in front of my computer and on the phone. After having a flare up of sciatic pain I decided I needed to get a better chair for my home office. All my research led to the Aeron as the best choice and I am glad I followed through and purchased it.

                                                                  Dealing with Smart Furniture was exceptionally easy and pleasant and Caroline helped me select the proper size and options for my needs. I chose a partially assembled chair since that was available for immediate shipping in my preferred configuration. Assembly was simple... just four screws and the required tool was even included. Smart Furniture also has a library of videos to illustrate the process.

                                                                  Once I had the chair assembled and adjusted I sat down and noticed that the feel of the chair was different than the padded chair I used previously. It took a few days to get used to the different feel of the Aeron chair. What took no time to get used to was getting up from the chair pain free. The Aeron is designed to support you without creating any pressure points that can lead to pain after sitting for an extended period. The design and thought that went into this product becomes evident when you use it and if you have to sit for hours on end it makes life so much more comfortable. My only regret is not purchasing an Aeron chair sooner.

                                                                  I am very happy with my purchase and can recommend the Aeron chair without reservation.

                                                                  Service and delivery comments:

It would depend on the Aeron seat height required for your height and posture. It would be best to call in to our sales office and we can better diagnose options. We can be reached at 888.467.6278.

Of course, the Aeron could last longer than 12 years. But we definitely don't recommend including it in your office chair races....it would only embarrass the other chairs.

The distance between the seat of the chair and the armrest when the armrest is in its lowest position is 5" and when the armrest is fully extended to its highest position is 9".

Adjustable arms also allow people with different statures to choose the arm height and angle that best accommodates their body size and work style. The adjustable arms also enable you to choose the best arm height for your desk or keyboard tray for proper keyboarding support.

If you must have the Aeron, a size B would work. The size B would not be as supportive on the thighs if sitting in the chair all day.

If you get the B you will find the seat not quite deep enough to support your thighs and the back a little short. If you get the C the deeper seat may hit your wife in the back of the calves with the hard seat front edge. I would say if your wife's legs are long (meaning for her height her legs are long as opposed to a long torso) go with a C. Make sure to get fully adjustable arms so she can pull the arms (which are spaced father apart on a C) closer to her body for a more comfortable sitting experience.

I have the B... will probably end up with the C... she has the C will probably end up with the B. We have no complaints, but the B is a little snug for me... so I'd recommend the C for you both as my wife doesn't have any complaints with the C at all.

If you lean back a lot I would go with the size C as you will use that taller back to support you when reclining. If you typically work sitting straight up I would go with a size B. Reason being, the front edge of the seat has a hard waterfall profile, and sitting straight up typically your legs are tucked under the seat and the back of your calves will get tired of be snuggled up against the (deeper size C) hard edge.

With your height and weight a size A is perfect for you, it will have the shortest seat height and smallest stature of all the chairs we offer. You will want to order the chair with a "tilt limiter and seat angle" as this will allow you to sit on the edge of your seat and still be supported by the back of the chair. The PostureFit lumbar support will also be helpful should you opt for the add on lumbar feature. A covered base is not an option for Aeron though, maybe you can keep a blanket or throw at your desk. For additional suggestions please email sales@smartfurniture.com and we will do our best to match you up with your perfect chair.

Would it be possible to get it without the caster base but rather an adapter plate that would fit my Chevy Impala? I love my car but the seats are killing me. This style of ergonomic seat would solve many back problems for those of us that commute 1-3 hours per day. The seat belts are attached to the B pillar and the floor so your chair wouldn't need to bear the load of the restraints.

Your best bet were you to take on this project would be to purchase an Aeron Side Chair (which unfortunately we don't sell) as it has a sled base. Assuming you are handy, you can alter that sled base to the right height for use in your Imapala.
