Design Story
In 1994, Herman Miller turned to renowned designers Don Chadwick and Bill Stumpf with the challenge to create a totally new kind of office chair. Chadwick's and Stumpf's previous collaboration had produced the groundbreaking Equa chair, so the two designers began this development process with a clean slate, with no assumptions about function, form or material, but with some strong convictions about what a chair ought to do for a person.
Ergonomically, it ought to do more than just sit there. It should actively intercede for the health of the person who sits in it longer than she should.

Functionally, it ought to move and adjust as simply and naturally as possible. It should support a person in any position he cares to assume, at any task his office job serves up.

Anthropometrically, it ought to be more inclusive than its predecessors. It should do more than accommodate small or large people; it should really fit them.

Environmentally, it ought to be benign. It should be sparing of natural resources, durable and repairable, designed for disassembly and recycling; made largely of recycled materials, the Aeron chair is designed to last a long time, with parts that get the most wear easily replaced and recycled. It's just what you would expect in a well thought-out design.

The design that fulfilled these criteria met all expectations and shattered some of them. It wasn't upholstered. It wasn't padded. It was dimensioned in three models that looked exactly alike and that had nothing to do with their users' job titles. It didn't look like any other office chair. And its revolutionary concept incorporated more patentable ideas than any previous Herman Miller research program.

"It was a matter of deliberate design to create a 'new signature shape'," says designer Bill Stumpf. "Competitive ergonomic chairs became look-alikes. Differentiation was a huge part of the Aeron design strategy, and it remains one of, if not the most, critical aspects of Aeron's success."

With its highly adjustable features, its breathable and supportive Pellicle fabric suspension technology, and its unique back support options, the Aeron accommodates the sitter like no other office chair on the market.

The Aeron Chair remains today one of the most famous designs in the industry. Recognized for its sleek look and innovative modern design, the Aeron has become part of the permanent collection at the Museum of Modern Art.

Home Office Chair

 from Dallas, TX– Verified Buyer

I purchased this chair for a client's home office that was off the family room and visible. As a lawyer, he sits in a chair all day only to come home to a few more hours at his desk. He is really enjoying this chair- very comfortable even after sitting in a different chair for most of the day.

The most comfortable chair!!!

 from Miami, FL– Verified Buyer

I have bought three of these chairs. I love that you don't get hot because of the mesh and that it is super supportive on your back, leg and knees. Can be easily adjusted and well worth the price for comfort. Also look beautiful in the office.

Perfect gift for your guy!

 from Bainbridge Island, WA– Verified Buyer

It was the perfect Christmas gift for my now-retired husband. It provides great back support (without all of the bells and whistles of the more expensive model) and encourages good posture even at the computer. He loves it! Better yet, even a mechanically-challenged person like me can assemble it.

Saving my back

 from INDIANAPOLIS, IN– Verified Buyer

For years I purchased rolling office chairs hoping to feel good after sitting in front of a desk all day. Finally I decided to get an Aeron Chair. In fact it is so comfortable, I bought two. My sister on trying the chair in my home bought three for her and her husband. Extremely happy with this purchase.

Very good chair

 from Russian Federation– Verified Buyer

This chair was too expensive in my city, so I had to order it directly from USA. AllModern's managers were very pleasant while answering all my questions about choosing the correct configuration, making an order and shipping. I have read a lot about HM's products on retail sites and forums, and I think my choice is right. The chair is really comfortable.

Thanks to AllModern!
