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.

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.

Agree with "Great chair, horrible price"
, more than a month ago.
I got this chair to replace an old, cheap one that was falling apart. At my old office, we had the first generation of Aeron chair and I really liked them. I figured I'd spend a little more and get a lot more. I certainly got a lot more in terms of comfort and posture support, but I also paid a lot, lot more in money.

If I had to do it again, I'd probably still get this chair because it's exceptional, from comfort and support to build quality, and I'm sure it'll last a long time. However, the price would still be a kick in the face.

I work from home so I spend a lot of time in this chair, but if you aren't someone who's either going to spend a lot of time in it or someone who has a lot of cash to burn, I'd maybe continue your search for something not quite so extravagant if your heart isn't set on it. I'm sure if I had more time to look, I could've found something comparable in quality and lower in price.

Phenomenal chair - horrible price.
, more than a month ago.
I purchased this chair specifically because I have a really bad back. I'm 5'9", about 190 pounds and have 3 herniated disks in my back (1 upper, 2 lower). Im a systems engineer and can sit all day long in my chair, so when I injured my back again about 3 weeks ago, it was time to get a decent chair. I bought the redesigned chair (redesigned in 2016) with almost all options except seat tilt (Doctor says everyone should be sitting flat and not tilted). Chair is extremely comfortable, but the main thing I notice is that when I sit for a long time and getup, my back isn't stiff like it usually is. The only thing I wish is that the back support pushed into my back a bit more. The chair is a 10 and Id recommend anyone with a bad back or posture to get it. However, there is no way the chair should be $1k. I can see $300-$400 but $1k+ is robbery. Here I am with a $1k chair....
