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® is recommended for users who like to sit up straight, working with the body’s biomechanics to support the natural forward tilt of the pelvis, which promotes healthier posture and improved back comfort.
  • Lumbar Support is recommended for users who like to recline or rock, adjusting to fit the natural curve of your mid and lower back, with a sliding support that can be flipped over to change seat depth.
  • Features tilt limiter with tension control, seat angle adjustment, adjustable arms, standard arm pads and carpet casters.

Chadwick calls his hands-on studio in Santa Monica an “experimental ...

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 ...
