The Herman Miller Aeron Chair is constructed in a way that's both environmentally friendly and intended to provide years of satisfying operation. 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). Because the patented mesh fabric returns easily to its original shape when the chair is empty, the fabric is especially durable and maintains its appearance even after years of regular use. 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.

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.

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.
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.
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.
