aeron® chair

Remastered by Don Chadwick, 2016. Designed by Bill Stumpf and Don Chadwick, 1994
Die-cast aluminum, 8Z Pellicle™ fabric, plastic
Made by Herman Miller

"It’s going to be a whole new experience, and yet the chair is still going to be an Aeron chair." -Don Chadwick

When Bill Stumpf and Don Chadwick designed the Aeron Chair, they combined a deep knowledge of human-centered design with never-before-seen technology to create a chair unlike any other. Now Aeron has been remastered in practically every way to create an office chair that better supports people and the types of work we do today.

Herman Miller recruited co-designer Don Chadwick to reexamine the design criteria in the context of today’s work and technology. With stronger, smarter materials, better adjustment capabilities, new finish options, and a healthier, more comfortable sit, they didn't recreate or redesign the Aeron Chair - they remastered it. The new Aeron works smarter than ever before - so you can too.

The Aeron chair features pressure distribution, aeration and natural movement. Across the seat & back, eight latitudinal zones of varying tension deliver increased comfort & support. The 8Z Pellicle fabric allows air, body heat and water vapor to pass through to help maintain even & comfortable skin temperature. An updated tilt mechanism delivers a smoother trajectory and optimal balance point to keep you in control of your movement.

Tilt - standard tilt adjusts tilt tension only. Tilt limiter and seat angle option adjust tilt tension, tilt range (4 settings), and seat angle (horizontal or 5 degrees forward).

Arms - adjustable arms move 4" vertically and from 15 degrees outward to 17 1⁄2 degrees inward. Fully adjustable, four dimensional arm option is now available.

Armpads - available with non-upholstered Vinyl or upholstered in Category 9 leather.

Back Support - three back support options to choose from. PostureFit SL ™ support provides a custom fit in the sacral & lumbar regions of the spine, helping to achieve healthier posture and improved lower back comfort.

Weight Limits - Aeron in size A is tested and warranted for use by persons 300 pounds and under. Aeron in size B and C are tested and warranted for use by persons 350 pounds and under.

Please note: if arm option is selected, the graphite frame chairs can be specified with either graphite vinyl or graphite leather arm pads, mineral frame chairs can be specified with either dark mineral vinyl or dark mineral leather arm pads and the carbon frame chairs can be specified with either dark carbon vinyl or dark carbon leather arm pads. Black leather is also available, please call to specify.

All our Aeron chairs can be customized for optimal comfort. Options include a choice of Zonal basic back support, adjustable lumbar support or adjustable PostureFit SL back support. The chairs are available in your choice of frame & base colors, with arm & caster options as well as 8Z Pellicle fabric colors to match frame finish.

Herman Miller was a West Michigan businessman who helped his son-in-law, D.J. De Pree, buy the Michigan Star Furniture Company in 1923. De Pree had been working at the company, which opened in 1905, since he was hired in 1909 as a clerk. De Pree knew his father-in-law was a man of integrity, so he decided to rename the company after him. By the middle of the 20th century, the name Herman Miller had become synonymous with modern furniture. Working with legendary designers George Nelson and Charles and Ray Eames, the company produced pieces that would become classics of industrial design.

Favorite Office Chair now at Home
, less than a month ago.
When COVID hit and work-from-home became the norm, I already missed some things about the office. But it wasn't until about 60 days in that my lower back started aching. I quickly realized that the $200 chair I had in my home office just wouldn't cut it anymore. I mentioned it to my team, and someone sent me the great deal on Herman Miller Aeron chairs on Hive Modern. I'm thrilled I was able to purchase the exact chair we have in our corporate offices for a much lower price. I could tell the difference immediately, and my lower back is on the mend. Spend the money - it's an investment in your health if you have a desk job.

Overall a Good Chair
, less than a month ago.
The chair provides a healthy sitting position. But for me it not quite comfortable. I am about 5'6'' and 130 pounds. I chose the size B. But even the lowest height is a little high for me. Also be careful with the armrests. Although I chose the fully adjustable arms, only the front end of the armrest is adjustable in width. It's too wide for me even if I've made them to be narrowest. Maybe a size A is more suitable for me. Please do try it on before purchasing.

Worth every cent!
, less than a month ago.
Amazing chair!!! I am not accustomed to sitting at the computer all day. So the switch to working virtually was a big shift for me. The Aeron chair has made it possible to sit in front of the computer for longer stretches of time without discomfort. A super well designed chair!

Super Office Chair
, less than a month ago.
Having spent many years sitting on low quality office chairs, this chair is such an improvement on past experience. I cannot compare this Aeron chair with any other high end chairs in the category. But I have no reason to try any others. This one is so comfortable, it would be difficult to improve on it, from my standpoint.

I am 5' 4" and most office chair seats are too deep for my legs. This one allows me to sit fully back in the seat and still have room behind my knees, the lower back support adjusted right where it is needed. My feet are flat on the floor, and my arm rests are fully adjustable to my arms resting at just the right height for typing.

With my low weight the Aeron allows me to set the spring on the tilt-back so that I can effortlessly tilt back when I want to, unlike lower quality chairs who's tension adjustment range is too shallow.

The mesh seat and back rest allows my body to breathe and not get clammy during stressful calls.

I can't find any faults with the Aeron chair, and highly recommend it. It's not cheap but feel it's money well spent.

Great chair and Great service!
, less than a month ago.
ordered the Aeron chair for home office use during the lock down. There was an understandable wait due to Herman Miller lead time.

Initial shipping was through Fedex and the product was slight damaged from shipping. Hive Modern quickly issued an exchange replacement with Herman Miller using a different shipping company. The second chair arrived in perfect condition. Awesome customer support from Hive Modern!

Chair itself is comfortable and easy to rock back and forth.
