Award-winning industrial designers Bill Stumpf and Don Chadwick earned themselves a place in what amounts to the design hall of fame when their Aeron Chair (1994) was added to the permanent collection of MoMA. Aeron is the paradigm of ergonomic seating, conceived to conform not only to different body shapes but also to movement, with multiple adjustment points for a custom fit. The breakthrough Kinemat tilt mechanism lets it move smoothly with the user from forward tilt (when you reach for the phone) to backward recline (while you contemplate what to say). And the Pellicle weave upholstery, another innovation in concept and comfort, evenly distributes weight over the seat and back, and permits air circulation. Durable and sleek, this chair will still look like new long after you retire. Design doesn’t get more civilized. This is the authentic Aeron Chair produced by Herman Miller. Constructed of 66% recycled materials. Backed by a 12 year manufacturer's warranty. Made in U.S.A.
PostureFit® works with the body’s biomechanics to support the natural forward tilt of the pelvis, which promotes healthier posture and improved back comfort.

Chairs are for sitting on. It sounds obvious, but there are designers who seem to miss that point. Not Don Chadwick, however, who has developed some of the best chairs on the market, including the Aeron chair whose loyal users wouldn't sit in anything else. Chadwick's chair design emphasizes the body and the fact that bodies move. Read more >
Bill Stumpf USA (1936-2006)
What does jazz have to do with design? Everything, according to Bill Stumpf, who once said that he liked to collaborate with other designers the way a jazz trio improvises, playing together with no fixed destination. The approach requires complete attention, and you have to trust your instincts. Design should make room for spontaneity and discovery, said Stumpf, "blending the pleasure and pain of life into something wonderful." Read more >
