Embody Chair by Herman Miller
designed by Bill Stumpf and Jeff Weber

At A Glance:
The Embody Chair is the world's first health positive chair. Sitting in this baby will actually improve the health of your back and spine, make you more comfortable, and support every part of your body. Not bad for an office chair. Designed by Bill Stumpf and Jeff Weber, this chair is the current gold standard in the ergonomic furniture world.

What's To Like:
The first thing you notice about this chair is how good it looks. It's not just great engineering and ergonomics, its great style. It has a narrowing back and up-curving "floating" armrests, all of which are beautiful, adjustable, and do your body good (in a manner of speaking). Speaking of adjustment, there is hardly an inch of this chair that can't be. This is a performance chair, and everything was designed with the individual in mind; it can be adjusted to fit you like a glove. It looks cool, if feels great, and it makes you healthier.

What's Not to Like:
We've done a lot of testing on this chair, and while every demographic loves it, it is designed for one who likes to work with a slight (or major) recline. While you can sit in an upright posture and still feel right at home, you get the most utility out of the Embody Chair when you're working in a reclined position. Just play with the Backfit Adjustment and Tilt Limiter and find the optimal setting for you.

The Bottom Line:
You can search for a more accomplished office chair, but you won't find one. And you'll probably get really bored, so don't do that. Just take our word that this is the absolute top of the line when it comes to ergonomic, high performance office chairs.

The Herman Miller Embody Chair is also known by the following manufacturer Item Numbers: CN1, CN122NNAA, CN222NNAA, CN122AWAA, CN222AWAA.

Embody Chair Dimensions

The Embody Chair is a truly revolutionary product. In nearly every category an office chair can be judged, it either matches or betters it's competition. In many of those categories, it has made contributions that have changed the face of the office furniture industry in a permanent way. The Herman Miller Embody Chair has won awards and praise from every corner of the design world, as well as from manufacturers, environmental groups, physicians, ergonomic scientists, and, of course, customers and office workers. In the end, it's the deep comfort, unwavering support and fresh, modern design that set this chair apart from it's peers. It looks great, it fits great, and it's actually good for you. The Herman Miller Embody Chair is at the forefront of an ongoing shift in the way we look at, experience, and work in office chairs. These are just some of the reasons why you should buy Embody.

With the Embody Chair your spine will always be supported in the appropriate places (including excellent lumbar region support), your legs, elbows and buttocks will never lose circulation or be in enough discomfort that you have to get up and stretch, or walk around. When you want to recline, or move in your chair to reach an awkwardly placed object, this chair moves with you, maintaining support and total ergonomic principles.

Back support is vitally important to your health, but it's often ignored by traditional office chairs, that usually give you a rigid backing (often padded) which can possibly recline. Essentially, it's a back with all the flexibility and support of a wooden board. With the Embody Chair, every area of your back is supported and moved with, as the Tri-Flex system administers comfort and support in three distinct zones. Increased back support means increased back health; which means better circulation, less discomfort and distress, higher rates of productivity and activity, and better moods and states of mind while you're working. If you have back support needs, the Embody Chair was made for you.

When you buy an Embody Chair from Smart Furniture, the chair you receive will have been fully customized by you in our Smart Designer customization tool. You choose the color, the finish, the adjustments and attachments. In the end, the chair you buy will be as unique and personal as you are.

Designer

Bill StumpfJeff Weber
Bill StumpfJeff Weber

Embody was created by Jeff Weber and the late Bill Stumpf. Stumpf began working with Herman Miller in 1970 and was instrumental in designing the Ergon, Equa, and Aeron Chairs. Arguably the most knowledgeable designer in the world in the field of ergonomic seating, Stumpf came to Herman Miller with partner Jeff Weber with the goal of creating a chair that could "Go beyond just minimizing the negative effects of sitting... that positively impacts your life so you can work and live better." Sadly, Stumpf passed away in 2006. Collaborating with over 30 professionals at Herman Miller, including physicians and PhDs in the fields of biomechanics, physical therapy, and ergonomics, Jeff Weber carried on with Stumpf's vision. His team ultimately succeeded in creating the world's first health-positive office chair.

During Embody's development, Herman Miller's engineering staff operated under three hypotheses:

  • An office chair can provide therapeutic benefits to it owner, rather than just being a heath-neutral seating device.
  • Wide variations in spinal curvature can be overcome through ergonomics to achieve natural "postural equilibrium"- the optimal upright point where the eyes are vertically aligned with the hips.
  • Comfort, liveliness, and health-positive benefits can be realized through the use of dynamic surface pressure, rather than non-dynamic surface pressure.

Using professional input on these three assumptions drove early design of the Embody Chair and resulted in the first protoptypes. In laboratory experiments involving kinematics, preferred postures, common seated tasks, and metabolics, Weber refined Embody's design and confirmed the health-positive benefits it could deliver.

Scientific Studies and Design Links


Design

More Than Just Comfort
Designed by Bill Stumpf (who pioneered the Aeron Chair) and Jeff Weber, Embody goes a step beyond being merely "health-neutral". Over time, it can actually improve the health of the person sitting in it. Scientific studies have shown that Embody users can experience better circulation, reduced resting heart rates, and less tissue damage around the sitting muscles. Embody promotes natural alignment in the spine, relieving stress across the entire back no matter how you twist and turn.

Pixelated Support
Through years of research and development, Bill Stumpf and Jeff Weber incorporated health-beneficial features such as the Pixelated Support System- a dynamic mesh of adjoining seat materials that has been proven to increase circulation and reduce strain on cell tissue.

This breakthrough chair surface, combined with new tilt technologies and unwavering back support, means the Embody Chair can provide lavish comfort for hours. And of greater importance, it lets you be better to your body every time you take a seat. Since Embody is warranted for 12 years, sitting in a chair that enhances blood circulation and distributes pressure at a granular level across your back, thighs, and sitting muscles can truly affect how your body feels from day to day.

Pixelated Support system helps increase circulation

Move Freely
Embody's Backfit adjustment and seat conform to your unique shape and distribute weight evenly. Embody's shape mimics the spine, providing subtle support along the entire back that shifts with your movements. The Backfit creates a dynamic surface that reacts to your movements every time you shift.

The narrow, frameless form along the back allows for freedom of movement along the neck and shoulders, which allows for a greater range of motion through the arms. Embody's dynamic frame can shift and twist right along with your spine, making is easy to lean back and stretch or even or turn without sitting forward.

Backfit Design of the Embody Chair

Rounded Edges
It's difficult to tell where the chair's edges are even when you sit in it, because there are no hard edges anywhere along the frame. Rigid edges running under the thighs can lead to poor circulation and the need for frequent stretching. But with the Herman Miller Embody Chair, all edges flex under the sitter's movements, ensuring an optimal distribution of weight. You don't so much sit in an Embody Chair as you do float over it.

The seat edge at the thighs is fully adjustable, allowing you to find the seat depth optimal for your proportions. Adjustable tilt limiter allows the user to lean back with experiencing unwanted lift in the thighs; instead, the legs remain roughly parallel to the floor, preventing stress on the knees, ankles, and things.

Embody features adjustable seat depth

Ventilating Surface
To promote the flow of heat away from the body that can build up under the legs and back over time, Herman Miller developed the Pixelated Support system. This 4-layer mesh is filled with negative space which permits a much greater amount of air flow than traditional fabric and frame chairs. Every square inch reacts under your movements. When you shift, you seat shifts. The extremely responsive nature of the Pixelated Support material means Embody users can sit for hours without experiencing uncomfortable heat-buildup.

Unparalleled flexibility, soft, breathable materials, ergonomics and comfort that comes with a 12 year warranty.

Ventilating Layers prevent heat buildup



Groundbreaking Ergonomics

Exquisite comfort is one of the hallmarks of the Embody Chair. Designed by Jeff Weber and Bill Stumpf for Herman Miller, the goal for this chair was always total ergonomic comfort. Stumpf was also the lead designer for the groundbreaking Aeron Chair, and he was interested in pushing ergonomic principle as far as it would go; for the Herman Miller team, that meant the design that eventually became the Embody. Everything about the chair is fashioned carefully and correctly to form a cohesive whole. The seat is not only designed to support your weight and keep you in good balance, the material itself is designed to increase air flow and keep you cool while you're working.

The edge of the seat is flexible, taking pressure off of your thighs. The backing of the chair, a real attention grabber with it's beautiful and intricate design, is able to bend and lean with you, no matter what angle you're sitting at. Most chairs either go backward or forward; the Embody Chair can go backward and forward at the same time, not to mention sideways and torqued positions. It's meant to keep your back comfy, and users who sit in the Embody Chair for long periods of time report increased mood and productivity, as well as never having to get up to stretch their legs or move around to get their circulation going. This is one reason why Embody makes a great office chair. What office wouldn't be better off getting comfort and productivity out from the chairs that fill it?

Another aspect of the Embody Chair's comfort metrics is adjustment. This chair can be adjusted in many different ways, all in an effort to fit your body and your needs perfectly. The seat can be extended, the arm rests can go up, down, sideways and in; the height of the chair and the tension in the back can all be modified to your exacting specification, making the Embody one of the more personal and adaptable chairs on the market.

If you're looking for a way to make your workday easier on your back, shoulders and legs, and if you're interested in increasing mood, health, and productivity, then the Embody Chair has all the amenities you need in a comfortable office chair. An intuitive piece of design, this is a chair that will read the lines of your body, react with appropriate flexibility and give, and make your working day better than before.

Support

The best new office chairs value support at a very high level. Ergonomic science and research, which Bill Stumpf and Jeff Weber both followed closely and contributed to, has shown the way to a new generation of furniture designers, revealing in detail the best ways to orient workers, support their backs, necks and shoulders, and increase their working efficiency and productivity. That's not to mention increasing their physical health and their mood, two things which office chairs aren't supposed to have anything to do with. But the Embody Chair is a different animal.

The Embody Chair was built to be the world's first health positive chair, the first office product that actually makes you better, rather than just makes you feel better. Because of this, Embody makes an excellent all around computer chair outside of the workplace.


Strikingly Original Design

Bill Stumpf and Jeff Weber were committed to making this chair the crowning achievement of the ergonomic furniture movement. But both men were also excellent designers of furniture, industrial and otherwise. It's the look of the Embody Chair that often sets it apart from it's peers when the average consumer is shopping.

The innovative and original back of the chair, the tapered headrest at the top; the moving, curvilinear armrests and the elegant seat all combine to form a unique and attractive whole. The vibrant colors available in the chair don't hurt it's image either, nor Smart Furniture's emphasis on customization.

First Impressions
I was really struck by the look of the Embody when I first picked it up. The backing of the chair was narrower and smaller than I'd imagined, the arms a little wider. Overall, it gave the impression of a kind of alien chair, something you might see on the deck of the Enterprise. I loved the style. The material the chair was upholstered in, Pellicle, was interesting too. It was porous, like a jersey, but also soft and really comfortable. I'd done some reading on the chair beforehand, and knew that it was supposed to help keep your back aligned and supported. Sitting in it, I could immediately feel the difference. The Embody Chair sort of cradles the body - and the effect of the engineering is that sitting up straight, usually my least favorite position, is really really comfortable in the Embody Chair. Comfortable enough that I may or may not return this chair to the store.

The X Factor
Well, the Embody Chair is just kind of undeniably cool. The futuristic silhouette, the adjustability, that soon-to-be-iconic backing? It definitely brightens your work day.

The Bottom Line
The Embody Chair is the top of the line for office chairs. For comfort, ergonomic design and performance, it cannot be beat. It's expensive, yes, but over it's guaranteed 12 year life span, the cost is probably worth it.

I expected a lot from this chair and it arrived last week. It is very well constructed, and I have played with the back adjustments and the seat depth adjustment, but can only sit on it for about a half hour at a time. The seat is very firm and uncomfortable.

Feels weird for me.

By 

from Atlanta

Comments about Herman Miller Embody Chair:

The chair is tilted forward as default and there is no way to fix it, and I really don't like it. I need to push the back instead of the chair support my back. And the armrest is not cushy at all. I don't understand why some people says it is upgrade of or superior over Aeron, because it doesn't work in same way as the Aeron does. They don't look same at all either. Anyway, if it was not tilted forward, I would like it.. However, my wife likes it because it's tilted.. So, my wife took it. For the conclusion, I guess it is not bad to be tilted, but it is just not for me.

Service and delivery comments:

It was Pilot delivery I guess. Nothing bad happened. But I don't understand why they need to make appointment to deliver it.

Worth every penny

By

Verified Buyer

Comments about Herman Miller Embody Chair:

I previously had an Aeron chair but sold it a few years back. I then replaced the chair with a knockoff that after about 2 years slowly disintegrated before my eyes. I have learned my lesson with office chairs. You get what you pay for and this was chair was certainly worth the price. Takes some time to do but once you dial it in to your liking, the chair is a pleasure every time you sit down. The overall design and color options are also a plus.

Service and delivery comments:

Delivered on time and fast. Box was in good shape. I took the option of having the chair pre-built for shipment. I did have a slight issue with one of the casters being bent but after sending an email to the smartfurniture customer service rep, they had a replacement sent out the next day. No other damage to the chair was found. I think it was just a bad caster and it was not bent during the shipping process.

The most comfortable chair I've ever sat in

By 

from Richmond, Virginia

Comments about Herman Miller Embody Chair:

I recently changed jobs and am now working full-time from home. I spend up to sixteen hours a day sitting in an office chair, between work and hobbies, and my old chair started to feel very uncomfortable halfway through the day. I realized I needed to invest in a high quality chair or suffer. The Embody was the perfect solution.

Service and delivery comments:

The chair shipped two weeks after I ordered it and was delivered four days after it shipped. I contacted customer service to check the status of the chair a week after the order was placed and received a prompt and helpful reply.

Love my Embody

By 

from San Jose, CA

Comments about Herman Miller Embody Chair:

I love my embody chair. I recently started to have lower back pain after years of working at a computer, running around airports, and trying to get in an occasional jog. I found the online reviews of this chair to be spot on. Out of the box, I wasn't sure I would keep it as it didn't seem too comfortable. But after watching a few videos and reading a few reviews from other users about how to properly adjust the chair, I was able to dial mine in and now I'm so happy that it's in my home office.

Looks better than it sits

By 

from Boca Raton, FL

Comments about Herman Miller Embody Chair:

After having sat in the Embody for almost a full month, 5-6 days a week for more than 10 hours a day, I'm just about ready to return it. This is a great looking chair and I think that plays more of a factor into its function than its actual design does. The fancy plastic Pixel back and seat look pretty cool when you see them and when you hear the reason behind the design, it sounds like a great idea! But I haven't found that having a thousand little plastic fingers more or less supportive and responsive than an advanced foam seat would be. Plus, you can't break a piece of foam but these Pixel plastic fingers can easily be broken. It's a great design idea, I don't find it to be a great implementation.

The Embody isn't made for people who prefer to sit up or lean back only slightly, it's a chair *made* for people who like to recline more often than not. Which is fine, if you like reclining but this makes a not-so-great chair for sitting up and intently working at a desk -- there's no seat tilt . I believe the spring tension needed to actually recline to be made for larger people since it requires quite a bit of force (or weight) to actively recline. I'm ~190lbs and find that when I try to recline, the Embody wants to push me into a more upright position, even though I'm purposefully trying to lean back.

Even though the Embody is purpose-built for sitting in for 8+ hours a day, I find it very difficult to sit in it for more than an hour or two at a time. It's a great looking chair and has some very interesting design and functionality ideas going on, I just don't think they all work together particularly well.

The reclining programmer's chair

By 

from Lehi, UT

Verified Buyer

Comments about Herman Miller Embody Chair:

I'm a software developer, and I'll find my self often spending 10+ hours a day just sitting. I have a standing desk, but I can't stand for more than a few hours a day before I get tired.

This chair does not feel extremely comfortable the first time you sit in it. In fact, it's notable harder than the cushy office chairs you might be used to. But after a 12 hour coding spree, I got up and noticed my back didn't hurt at all! Not a single bit of ache! Magic!

If you like to recline while you work, if you work for many hours straight, and if you notice your back in pain at all after a long, long day at work, this chair is for you!

I loved this chair so much I bought two: one for at home, and one for the office! I purchased black on black, rhythm fabric, and hard wood casters.

Comments about Herman Miller Embody Chair:

Upon first sitting in The chair I didn't like it. The back was all wrong. But after fidiling with all the settings for a couple of days I found it to be the most comfortable chair I had ever owned.

Service and delivery comments:

Smart furniture was prompt and pleasent I will order most of my furniture from them in the future. However I think they may reconsider using FedEx as the driver left it in the snow at the bottom of my lengthy drive way. I think I may have hurt my back carrying the chair all the way up the driveway as the box is quite awkward and the chair quite heavy. Regardless it has since healed, which I'm sure is in no small part because of the chair in question.

Maybe I haven't perfected the ideal adjustments yet. I did notice on the first day lint from a blanket is left behind on the chair. See the picture. No other noticeable issues. I haven't found the chair to be spectacular. It seems to be ordinary. Quality of the chair is great and warranty is nice.

Excellent Quality Chair

By 

from Monroe, NJ

Comments about Herman Miller Embody Chair:

I wanted a new chair for my home office and I wanted the best. I did a lot of research and finally settled at the Embody as it provides excellent comfort, customization and quality. I choose my own color and other options and the chair was delivered to me in perfect condition. The delivery people unboxed it and took it to my loft on the second floor. I have been using it for more than week now and I am completely satisfied. I registered my chair on Herman Millers site. Service from SmartFurniture was EXCELLENT. Also got a great discount as I ordered it a little before Thanksgiving. Brooke from Sales was very helpful.

Service and delivery comments:

Chair came in perfect condition, couldn't have asked for more.

Comments about Herman Miller Embody Chair:

I bought this for use in my home office. I sit on it for several hours a day after work (where I currently sit on a Herman Miller Aeron). I've also had the opportunity to try out the Steelcase Gesture before deciding on the Embody, so I have experience with several comparable chairs. I've been using the Embody for about 3 weeks now.

I got mine in the Rhythm Mulberry fabric. I had considered switching to the Balance fabric, but heard reports of lower durability due to the "foamy" nature of that fabric.

Things I love about the Embody:
- The back is super-comfortable and forms to your spine
- The seat-pan is huge
- The seat is slightly squishy, and very easy to get comfortable in
- Can be adjusted to higher tensions to keep you upright, or lower tensions to get you into a "hammock" kinda feeling position
- The "skeleton" back actually looks super-futuristic and nice. The pictures don't do it justice, in my opinion.

Things that are meh:
- (Lack of) color options on Balance fabric. Where's the red!? :(
- The arms. They're your standard fare arms, like on the Aeron, but after using the awesome arms on the Gesture, their flaws are just so apparent.

Things I don't like:
- The adjustment features all feel kind of cheap. Especially compared to the Steelcase Gesture, which had knobs along the right side for everything, with smooth action. On the Embody, you have to pull upwards on the seat-bottom and yank it forward to extend it. Same with the arms, you have to pull them upwards to adjust their angle. When you adjust, you can feel plastic grinding against plastic. Kinda cheap feeling compared to the well-engineered knobs on the Gesture.
- The "resting angle" of the back is entirely dependent on the tightness/tension of the back; as you adjust it to be more tight/tense, it leans in forward towards you. I'd like to have the back very upright, but also loose and easy to push back on. This combination is not possible.
- Feels less durable than the Gesture; though you do get a 12-year warranty with both of these chairs, so you can rest easy knowing you'll get at least that much out of it.

tl;dr: I want the build quality and adjustment features of the Gesture. The Gesture feels like a better put-together chair. That said, I use this in my home. I don't think I'm going to be breaking either one, so I stuck with the Embody, because once both chairs are adjusted properly, the Embody is just a lot more comfortable. If I were buying for a workplace or something, I'd probably go with the Gesture, as I know my workers would never be able to break those. The Embody just feels a little less sturdy.

Comments about Herman Miller Embody Chair:

Sitting in the Herman Miller embody is an interesting experience. Its a little hard to describe but I will do my best upon first seeing the chair in person. I was surprised by how small it looked in comparison to the steelcase leap it was replacing. I grabbed the info manual hanging from the back fiddled with the adjustments some then sat down my initial thought was that it felt a lot different then the leap but not necessarily better. I noticed that the chair moved forward and backwords a little even when locked strate up. I thought wow its wobbely that's no good. after sitting in the chair for 2 hours I relised the wobble was for leaning forwad or sitting regular I cam to like the motion and would even rock back and forth from time to time.i made more adjustment to the chair its even more comfortable now. I was a little surprised that unlike the leap or any other chair I have had for that matter the longer I was sitting in the embody the more I liked it and my back was felling strang in a great way it was also poping a lot upon getting up.with any other chair the initial sitdown is the best and then its downhill form there with the embody the intial sitdown is good but it just gets better from there. I now belive that this chair is the best cair in the world. however I will say this the armrests while not bad are defintily the worst part of the chair, I say this only because the rest of the chair is nearly perfect though.

Comments about Herman Miller Embody Chair:

I had this chair at a previous job for over year and decided to buy one for my home office. It is so much more comfortable than a Herman Miller Aeron and (in my opinion) one of the most interesting looking office chairs from an industrial design standpoint. My Embody from a previous job had the thinner fabric (rhythm) but I think the Balance fabric is totally worth the extra $200 both from comfort and aesthetics.

The chair is expensive but worth it!

Very Comfortable

By

Verified Reviewer

Comments about Herman Miller Embody Chair:

I love this chair! It is very comfortable and even more stylish in person. There wasn't any place for my to try this before it arrived so I took a chance. It is a little smaller in person than it appeared to me in the pictures. Its VERY solid and pretty heavy. I have the aluminum base. It would be five stars but the arms are a little "jiggly" when you grab them with your hand. Now this is something that every adjustable arm office chair I have ever seen does but it would be nice if they would invent a way that they didn't move once you had them adjusted.

Be good to your back

By

Comments about Herman Miller Embody Chair:

Working at a startup, I sit in front of my computer for 10+ hours day and also have the battle scars to prove it in the form of back pains. My $100 chair that I've been using for the past 10 years is disintegrating in front of my eyes, so I've been looking for a chair. As I've inched closer to 40, I'm starting to feel all the abuse I've put my body through when I was younger. So for my 38th birthday, I've decided to splurge and treat myself to a top of the line ergonomic chair.

I've done extensive research before purchasing this chair. Not because of the price, but because I absolutely hate the hassle of returning items. So I wanted to be sure that I get it right the first time. One thing that I must stress (and if you're been researching premium chairs I'm sure you've head this before) is the importance of actually sitting in one if you want to minimize your chance of a buyer's remorse. I had 4 chairs in my mind when I went to a local brick and mortar store to test out these chairs.

The 4 chairs I was considering were: Herman Miller Aeron, Herman Miller Mirra, Herman Miller Embody and the Steelcase Leap. Before going into the store, the chair I had my eyes set on was the Herman Miller Aeron. After actually sitting in an Aeron, it was immediately clear that it would not work for me. I was surprised to find that I really liked the Mirra (the original - it actually felt sturdier and more comfortable than the new Mirra 2), especially the tilt-forward feature which the Embody lacks. However, the Embody was the more comfortable chair. The price wasn't a concern for me, but if you are, I feel that Embody definitely isn't $400-$500 more comfortable than the Mirra -- but at this upper price range, you're really dealing with diminishing returns. I was willing to spend $400-$500 extra to get that extra 5-10% comfort.

I read this somewhere, "Don't ruin your health in order to earn money. You will end up spending your money to recover your health and that is not reciprocal." Good advice, but if you must ruin your health in order to earn money, then do it in a comfortable chair!

Comments about Herman Miller Embody Chair:

After countless hours researching desk chairs, I finally settled on the Embody chair by Herman Miller. It has met and even exceeded my expectations in terms of comfort, aesthetics, and ease of use. Every time I sit in it I have that aaah! moment. It embraces your back, conforms to your movements, and fits your body like a finely tailored custom made suit. It is worth every penny paid for it.

Comments about Herman Miller Embody Chair:

Purchased the Embody chair after much research and once I received it, it did not disappoint. The level of detail around all the adjustments was well designed. It even comes with an adjustment to account for the distance between the back of your knees and the back rest. The lumbar and back support is phenomenal as it shapes to your back. The only issues, and it may be mine only, the adjustment knobs at the bottom are not real intuitive.

Comments about Herman Miller Embody Chair:

This is my office chair and it seems to fit like a glove. At fist it seems hard, but quickly I found this to be just what I need. It has the correct amount of adjustments and the operation of the chair is not overly complex. Clearly, a great deal of thought was put into this design.

Service and delivery comments:

The delivery service was great - the only hitch was that the delivery company claimed to have difficulty in reaching our office (yet we did not recive a call). A short call fixed that - the shipping company is very reponsive.

    Asked on 7/18/2012 by bebop from san francisco

    1 answer

    • Smart Furniture Staff Reviewer

      A:

      The Embody Chair was designed to best work with a reclined posture. You can lock the back upright to prevent it from reclining as well as adjust the curvature of the spine to match your back. It could work well for you but please note: the seat on the Embody is not the most cushy, sitting upright 100% of the time you may be more comfortable in a foam, mesh or gel seat.

    I received my Embody chair today, but seat of the chair wouldn't lift. How can I fix it?
    Asked on 12/20/2010 by I love my Embody Chair

    4 answers

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      Embody Chairs are shipped in the lowest position and can experience the following:

      Vibration in transit can cause the cylinder to "settle" into the base deeper than intended. The chair will appear to be "stuck" in the lowest position. This can be corrected by (1) standing over the chair, (2) firmly pulling up on the "joy stick" until it almost touches the rubber tension knob, (3) grabing the opposite side of the seat with your free hand, and (4) pulling up on the chair while swiveling the chair back and forth.

      AND/OR

      The activation end of the cable may have come loose from the top end of the pneumatic cylinder. This can be corrected by (1) from the left side of the chair, as seated, locate the activation cable. this can be found between the under side of the seat and the top of the tilt. (2) Grasp the cable and attempt to pull it toward you. (3) If the cable comes out you will can re-attach it by slipping the ball end into the fork on the top of the cylinder. You may need a flashlight to see the mechanism. (4) Snap the cable collar into the holder on the top of the cylinder. (5) Activate the "joy stick"

      You flick the clear plastic "switch" on the right side of the chair, and don't put pressure on it. It is basically the same as every other desk chair. They show it in the review video. If that doesn't work I am assuming it is broken. Now looking at the date I am assuming you have solved this problem.

      If pushing the little joystick in the middle of the adjustment knob just below and to the right of the seat doesn't do it (you might need to lift your wight off of it), then it might be broken.

      Even with the extended height cylinder on an Embody the maximum seat height is 22". You will need a work stool like the Aeron Stool (https://www.smartfurniture.com/products/Aeron-Stool.html) that has a higher seat height. Embody does not have a stool version.

  • Q:

    How do I clean my Embody Chair?
    Asked on 10/6/2010 by Anonymous from SF

    1 answer

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      BASE, FRAME & ARMPAD MAINTENANCE: For normal cleaning, wash surface with a soft cloth soaked in mild detergent and warm water. Rinse thoroughly and dry with a soft cloth. Do not use solvents or abrasive kitchen cleaners.

      BALANCE FABRIC MAINTENANCE: For normal cleaning, vacuum fabric as needed. Vacuuming picks up dust and reduces the need for professional cleaning. Do not brush fabric or use a vacuum attachment with a rotary brush.

      To spot-clean fabric, immediately soak up the stain with a soft absorbent cloth. Do not dry the stain completely or it may set. The longer a stain is allowed to remain on a fabric, the more difficult it is to remove.

      For water-based stains such as coffee, soft drinks, fruit juices, or milk use a water-based cleaner (specifically made for cleaning fabric) or a solution of mild (alkaline) warm soapy water (not overly soapy) applied with a damp clean cloth or sponge. Work the cleaner into a lather or foam. Never use hot water, it will set the stain. Avoid scrubbing.

      OTHER CARE & MAINTENANCE CONSIDERATIONS: Do not over apply water or any liquid solution to fabric. Excessive wetting of the fabric with any liquid solution may result in permanent damage to the material. Do not rub too vigorously or you may damage the nap of the fabric or break fibers. Soak up all remaining solution and then use another clean cloth or sponge dipped in cool water to remove any residue. Let fabric dry thoroughly and then vacuum well before using.

      If large areas are soiled or stains resists cleaning, contact a professional cleaning firm.

      All five casters have brakes, BUT not locks. With weight in the chair the casters roll freely, but with weight removed an internal brake causes friction on the wheels which does allow the chair to roll with some additional effort.

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      Rhythm is 100% polyester with no upcharge for application on the Embody chair as the fabric is an existing one for Herman Miller being used on other seating. Balance is 100% polyester knit, created specially for the Embody Chair. Loft, or thickness, gives it a cushy feel. Air and light pass through it more easily, providing maximum cushion and breathability.
