    Product Overview

    Basic Aeron Chair

    Key Features

    Even Pressure Distribution: Pellicle , the innovative, elastomeric suspension of the original Aeron, eliminated circulation-restricting pressure points and stretched the boundaries of material design. New 8Z Pellicle™ pushes the material to a whole new zone—eight of them.

    Exceptional Breathability: By doing away with foam and fabric, Aeron solved one of biggest prolonged sitting predicaments: the buildup of heat and humidity close to the body. Pellicle allows air, body heat, and water vapor to pass through the seat and backrest to help maintain even and comfortable skin temperatures.

    Superior Posture: If an active body is at its strongest when standing, chest open and pelvis tilted slightly forward, it makes sense that you would be better off sitting like that too. And that's exactly where PostuReFit SL™ comes in. Adjustable, individual pads stabilize the sacrum and support the lumbar region of the spine to mimic that healthful standing position.

    Natural Movement: Staying in one position reduces the natural pumping action of the muscles that delivers nutrients to the intervertebral disks. The Aeron chair's tilt allows it to move with the body in such a natural way that people can shift from forward to reclining postures without even thinking about it. Today's slimmer, updated tilt mechanism delivers a more seamless experience of movement (and stasis) to the sitter through a smoother trajectory and optimal balance point.

    Balanced Recline: Aeron lets you shift from forward to reclining postures without a thought. A slimmer, updated tilt mechanism delivers a seamless experience of movement and balance. Through a smoother trajectory and optimal balance point, it keeps people in contact with the seat back and in control of their movement throughout the entire range of recline.

    Customized Fit with Less Dial Turns: The original design made it possible to adjust the amount of recline and resistance to the sitter's liking. Depending on the sitter';s scale, this involved up to 50 turns of the tilt mechanism. Advancements in materials and engineering allowed Herman Miller to scale back the amount of turning, twisting, and time spent customizing a personal fit. Now the sitter can reach a custom recline in 13 turns or less.

    One Size Does Not Fit All: With chairs, one size does not fit all people. Based on an end-to-the-middle design approach, Aeron comes in three sizes (A,B, and C) to provide an inclusive fit that delivers the same level of comfort to the largest range of body types of any office chair.

    Choosing the Right Aeron for You

    You have a lot of options when it comes to how to build your chair. After selling Aeron Chairs for over 20 years we've determined the optimal configurations for every price range.

    Basic: While basic chairs are still high quality Aeron chairs, they come with minimal adjustability and fixed arms. These chairs are a lower price point and should be utilized in situations where prolonged sitting isn't required and minimal movement and flexibility in the work environment is acceptable.

These chairs are ideal for shared environments where prolonged sitting is likely and movement and flexibility will be required. You can view the adjustable models in stock here.

    Fully Adjustable: Our best-selling configuration! The fully adjustable Aeron includes all the features necessary to get the most out of your chair. With fully adjustable arms, tilt limiter with seat angle adjustments, and ergonomic back support options, your chair will always be perfectly aligned to your needs. This model is ideal for environments in which a single user will be sitting for most of the day, such as a standard private office workstation.You can view the fully adjustable models in stock here.

    Executive: If you need top of the line with all the bells and whistles, the executive Aeron model is for you. This configuration comes with the all of the available adjustability features as well as a polished aluminum base and chassis for that high-end look.

    Aeron, Remastered to Perform Today

    When Herman Miller released the Aeron chair in 1994, it quickly began to change the landscape. With a comprehensive approach to ergonomics, anthropometrics, and user functionality, it performed like no chair that had come before. In doing so, it also ended up looking like no chair that had come before. With Aeron, materials don't simply contribute to the appearance of the chair, they are the design.

    In revisiting Aeron for today's work and workers, every effort was made to significantly improve upon the comfort and performance of the original, while also creating a beautiful, harmonious look-and-feel through updated colors, materials, and finishes.

    Through hundreds of samples, tests, and iterations, Herman Miller arrived at three tightly curated, holistic material expressions. Graphite is the darkest, a modern take on the original Aeron. Carbon offers a balanced neutral that works equally well in warm and cool environments. Mineral is the lightest, ideal for today's more open environments.

    Created through a unique painting process, Aeron's satin aluminum finish offers a luster redolent of high-end electronic equipment. Colors were developed to harmonize with the chair's other components.

    Details such as these contribute to a product worthy of the Aeron name, but they are not enough. Each detail contributes to a seamless whole. To simplify the specification process, Herman Miller now offers Aeron in a range of three tightly curated, holistic material expressions: Graphite, Carbon, and Mineral.

    Design Story

      The Evolution of Aeron

      Designed by Bill Stumpf and Don Chadwick, 1994
      Remastered by Don Chadwick, 2016

      “How can you take something that is so well-known and rework it completely, and at the same time not lose the essence of it?” - Don Chadwick

      In the early 90s Bill Stumpf and Don Chadwick teamed up to take on a new challenge, to build a chair that could be health-positive, meet the cross-performance needs of workers everywhere, as well as be inclusively-sized for all body types and consider its environment in the process. With Aeron, they achieve this and more, an office chair the unlike any before it and the world responded by making Aeron the best-selling and most recognizable office chair of all time.

      Fast forward to the present, and the same criteria serve as the foundation for a whole new Aeron. Just as iconic films and albums are updated for new mediums, standards, and audiences, Aeron has been remastered based on Herman Miller's latest research around the science of sitting, advancements in materials, manufacturing, and technology.

      The office of 1994 would be largely unrecognizable today. With all the changes that have occurred from the internet to open offices, it only made sense that Aeron should also change to better meet the needs of people today.
