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.

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

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.

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.

Good Chair but expensive and some issues

By 

from Charlotte, NC

Comments about Herman Miller Embody Chair:

Bought to replace aeron, as I had a back injury; but ended up keeping both. The embody has better back support than either of the Aeron's options and that is why I've kept it, it really hit the spot in that regard. Unfortunately, I have also get neck pain in this chair that I do not get when using the Aeron. It's a tradeoff, but I've had enough issues that I decided to keep both. Overall 3.5 out of 5.

Nitpicks: when moving the chair, the armrest settings will give way before the chair starts to roll. Also, the back setting needs to be re-adjusted every day because it naturally moves towards the minimum setting just from sitting in it. It's gradual and you won't notice until you are sore, so you have to change it before you notice it.

This is one amazing chair!

By 

from Los Angeles, CA

Comments about Herman Miller Embody Chair:

This chair is well worth the price. I sit for 10+ hours a day working in front of a computer. For years I suffered from back pain and tension in my neck and shoulders (including a pinched nerve that would make my fingers go partially numb periodically). Since I started using this chair, those symptoms have stopped altogether. And the only thing that has changed is my chair. I have now been using the Embody chair for a year and a half and decided to write this review to state that it is worth the investment. I am as happy with it now, as the day it arrived.

Service and delivery comments:

Shipping took some time due to the customization, but it was worth the wait.

Amazing office chair!

Comments about Herman Miller Embody Chair:

This chair has been a God-send. I suffered from tension in my back and shoulders (including a pinched nerve) for years from sitting all day in front of a computer while working. Ever since I purchased this chair, I have experienced no recurrence of those problems. The quality of this chair is amazing. It is expensive, but in my opinion well worth the investment.

So close to perfection, but misses the mark big way

By 

from MA

Comments about Herman Miller Embody Chair:

Initially loved the chair, though immediately could tell the armrest design is poor. The arms cannot be adjusted fore/aft and can interfere e.g. with a keyboard tray. What I really liked is how comfortably the chair reclines - just perfect support and perfectly adjustable tension. However, the spine support will poke you in the back. It was okay if I was wearing a seater, but I typically sit just in a T-shirt. After an hour or two the plastic support would get too noticeable and irritating - the chair really could use more padding. I ordered the chair with Balance fabric that is said to be more cushy, but that was not enough. HM needs to come up with v2 version of this chair: put sensible arm rests and add padding to the lower back - then the chair will be perfect. As is, very reluctantly, but it had to be returned.

Very happy with this purchase. Excellent product

Comments about Herman Miller Embody Chair:

I was originally hesitant to spend this kind of money on an office chair but I'm glad I did. It's extremely comfortable. The adjustments allow for limitless configurations. The "flexible" spine allows it to move with your back. I have nothing negative to report with this product.

Really cool chair

By 

from Massachusetts

Comments about Herman Miller Embody Chair:

Very comfortable, particularly back. Had some issues with the pressure behind knees, but adjusting the seat length seems to be helping (actually making it longer than too shorter). One thing I really dislike is the arms, badly located and hardly adjustable, I don't know what were they thinking. I want to love the chair, but the arms remain an issue.

Sitting in the Embody chair encapsulates all the traits to prevent long term issues from bad habits; it's comfortable, my body molds to this chair. I find my neck issues have disappeared, the back no longer has pains. It's like weightless sitting.
It's worth the investment and the ROI is immediate.
I have purchased 3 as gifts and 2 for my two home offices.
Friends of mine who have purchased 1 have purchased another for their wife.

Herman Miller Does It Again!

By 

from Chicago, IL

Comments about Herman Miller Embody Chair:

Purchased the Embody for my home office. I ordered the chair with pretty much all the options. With all the options, it took a few days to find just the right settings. It's a great chair - I sit in it for up 8 hours a day and it provides excellent support. The seat is a little wider than I probably need but it's still very comfortable. I love the soft roll casters!

Service and delivery comments:

Delivered fully assembled out of the box.

Well-designed, comfortable and underrated work chair

By 

from CA

Comments about Herman Miller Embody Chair:

I've gone through close to a dozen chairs in the last few years searching for "the one". The Embody Chair is pretty close to what I need on a daily basis out of an office chair, comfortable, ergonomic, well-designed and higher quality. It's not without a few cons; obviously the price might be cost-prohibitive for some. However, if you're going to sit in a chair 2,000 hours a year, it should take good care of your body. Second, the initial setup with the levers and controls was not intuitive. I had to go on YouTube to find out how to setup the chair. Once you know how, it's easy.

Service and delivery comments:

Also, do select the assembled option--it'll come in a giant box, you just have to pull it out. Bonus, use the shipping box as a play box for your cat.

Perfection

By 

from New York, NY

Comments about Herman Miller Embody Chair:

Supremely adjustability and unmatched comfort. Just adjust the chair according to the guides which can be found online, and then your own intuition of what feels correct and you should be fine. I purchased the Gesture before this chair, but I returned it due to discomfort with the stiff feeling of the chair overall and the Embody is the consummate winner between the two with its peerless flexibility and airy feeling (n.b. I purchased the chair with the balance fabric, if it makes a difference as I've heard it does).

Service and delivery comments:

Delivery was prompt (about 2 weeks or so) and the packaging was convenient. All that was needed to be done was to open the box and slide the chair out, then tear some protective plastic out and the chair was unpacked.

Upgraded from a cheap ikea chair to this because I was starting to get lower back problems. We have the Aeron chair at the office which was pretty nice but I decided to get the embody chair for home.

Amazing Chair - worth every dollar!

By 

from Novi, MI 48374

Comments about Herman Miller Embody Chair:

I've gone though many chairs over the years and they all became wobbly messes. This chair construction is amazing. Rock solid. I got the grey with the fancy wheels and it is beautiful, sleek and inviting.
It's adjustments are easy and logical. It fits like a glove and actually improves my posture. This chair makes you want to sit upright since the back has the perfect support. As I said before all the other $200 chairs I've had before never even came close to this machine. They might have lasted a year or two and the last year of their creaky existence was a gradual increase in pain. The Embody embraces your body and makes sitting a positive experience. Has to be used to be believed.

I'm getting a second Embody for my other work station because I can't sit in the "Staples Chair" for more than a few minutes.

Service and delivery comments:

It took a month for he custom chair to be built, but it was delivered as soon as promised. I assembled mine since I wanted a smaller box for ease of getting it upstairs. The instructions were detailed and good. It does take about a half hour to put it together. I had a slight problem with the very last part where the back screws onto the base, but I called Herman-Miller and they were most helpful and got me back on track. Definitely a positive phone call.

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 

from Fremont, CA

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.

I bought the chair for my home office. I recently started working from home and between work and normal computer use (gaming, browsing the internet) I spend most of my day sitting. I figured I should invest in a high quality chair since I'd get uncomfortable in my old chair halfway through the day. The Embody solved this problem.

The chair took two weeks to ship. Once it shipped it arrived in 4 days.

  • Q:

    I need to sit almost vertically with good lumbar support. Is this chair capable of supporting me in this position, or is the default upright position going to recline my back?
    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"

      A:

      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.

      A:

      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.

      A:

      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 (http://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.

    Asked on 10/6/2010 by Anonymous from SF

    1 answer

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      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.

    What's the difference between the Rhythm and Balance fabrics?
    Asked on 10/6/2010 by Gil from Chattanooga, TN

    1 answer

    • 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.
