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. In 2007, the Aeron Work Stool was added to the collection to provide an ergonomic solution for architects and designers who sit at drafting tables and tall desks. The Work Stool conforms not only to different body types but also to movement and the gravity of the sitter whose feet aren’t planted on the floor. A waterfall edge, where the back of the knee meets the edge of the seat, reduces pressure under the thigh so circulation isn’t restricted, and the height-adjustable Fine Tune™ foot ring ensures comfort during extended sitting. The breakthrough Kinemat tilt mechanism lets it move smoothly with the user from forward tilt to backward recline. 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 Stool will still look like new long after you retire. This is the authentic Aeron Work Stool produced by Herman Miller. Constructed of 66% recycled materials. 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.
PostureFit is recommended for users who like to sit up straight.

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 >
