Additional Information


When Bill Stumpf and Don Chadwick designed the Herman Miller Aeron Chair (1994/2016), they combined a deep knowledge of human-centered design with never-before-seen technology to create a task chair unlike any other. Now Aeron has been remastered in practically every way, resulting in an office chair that better supports people and the work we do today. With the help of Don Chadwick, Herman Miller updated Aeron to incorporate 20 years of research in the science of sitting, as well as advancements in materials. The Aeron Work Stool is perfect for architects and designers who sit at drafting tables and tall desks. It‘s fitted with an 8Z Pellicle elastomeric suspension seat that offers eight latitudinal zones of varying tension and permits free air circulation, a tilt mechanism that moves smoothly from forward tilt to backward recline and a height-adjustable footrest for comfortable extended sitting. Aeron supports you through your entire range of motion, keeping your movements smooth and balanced. This is the authentic Aeron Work Stool by Herman Miller. Constructed of 53% recycled materials, Aeron is 89% recyclable. Backed by a 12-year manufacturer’s warranty. Made in U.S.A.

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 with Bill Stumpf – by emphasizing the body and the fact that bodies move.

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 ...

Care and Assembly

View Instructions
Care & Maintenance With regular care and maintenance, your Herman Miller product will provide many years of superior performance and satisfaction. To maintain quality, please follow the cleaning procedures outlined here. The instructions for the care and maintenance of Herman Miller Products are provided to you as a service. No warranty is implied since results may vary. Polished Aluminum For normal cleaning, apply a pre-softened paste wax to polished aluminum components following the manufacturer's instructions. In humid atmospheres near salt water, apply the wax once a month. In other areas, apply wax every three months to maintain the appearance of the aluminum. Plastic For normal cleaning, wash plastic surfaces with a soft cloth soaked in mild detergent and warm water. Rinse thoroughly and dry with a soft cloth. Do not use solvents or abrasive kitchen cleaners. Pellicle For normal cleaning, vacuum fabric as needed. Vacuuming picks up dust and reduces the need for professional cleaning. Do not brush fabric or use a vacuum attachment with a rotary brush. Brushing may permanently damage the nap or change the character of the fabric. There are two types of stains: water-based and oil-based. Water-based stains are non-greasy soil or stain such as coffee, soft drinks, fruit juices, or milk. Oil-based stains are oil-borne soil or stains such as lipstick, grease, or salad dressing. For water-based stains, use a water-based cleaner (specifically made for cleaning fabric) or a solution of mild (alkaline) warm soapy water (not overly soapy) applied with a damp clean cloth or sponge. Work the cleaner into a lather or foam. Never use hot water, it will set the stain. Avoid scrubbing. For oil-based stains, use a dry cleaning solution applied with a damp clean cloth or sponge. To spot-clean fabric, immediately soak up the stain with a soft absorbent cloth. Do not dry the stain completely or it may set. The longer a stain is allowed to remain on a fabric, the more difficult it is to remove. Test the cleaning solution on a small, concealed area first. If there is no spotting, ringing, or damage to the fabric or its dyes, apply the cleaning solution to the soiled area with light, quick strokes. Begin at the outside of the stain and work toward the center, being careful not to over-saturate the fabric. Do not rub too vigorously or you may damage the nap of the fabric or break fibers. Several light applications are better than one heavy application. Soak up all remaining cleaning solution and then use another clean cloth or sponge to remove any residue. (For water-based stains, use a clean cloth or sponge dipped in cool water.) Let fabric dry thoroughly and then vacuum well before using. If the stain resists cleaning, call a professional cleaner. If large areas are soiled, have a professional cleaning firm clean the fabric with a dry compound upholstery shampoo.

Excellent stool
It is a very comfortable stool. The back support is very good and the adjustments (height, back, tilt, etc) are very easy to make. Very happy with the ordering and the delivery process.

Comfortable Stool for a few minutes or hours
This stool is at my work surface in my barn and is used intermittently throughout the day. I can say it is always pure relaxation when I set down for a few minutes. The chair is easy to adjust and comfortable in every position. A great long term investment!

Perfect for my drafting table
The stool meets all my expectations for quality, sturdiness, adjustability, and comfort, and it is a perfect height for use with my drafting table. Although the cardboard box was coming apart upon delivery, the stool was undamaged.

If I could wish for anything more, it would be A) a foot ring outer diameter equal to the outer diameter of the 5 chair legs and B) a stool height range that goes short enough to slightly overlap the upper end of the height range for the normal desk chair.

Fabulous Stool
I finally have an Aeron Stool to match my Aeron Desk Chair in my home office and I love it - same quality, comfort and overall awesome design.

Now if I could just get one for my desk at work!

Should Have Been Using this Stool Sooner
We all know that Aeron chairs are great. But I am 6'8" and the stool is a much better fit. I have it set with two different work surfaces. Works great and my back feels so much better. I did have a problem with a damaged delivery and Herman Miller was great and sent replacement parts and ordered me a new replacement stool to swap out.

Super comfortable
I love the Aeron chairs! We already had the Aeron desk chair and now we also have the stool. It's very comfortable for long-term sitting in front of a computer. I feel like it also helps my posture as I sit up more straight now.

Outstanding chair
Outstanding chair; matched with a standing desk to more easily split work hours between standing and sitting.

How do the Lumbar and Posturefit settings differ on the Aeron work stool? How would you determine which is the better fit?
Jeff S on Nov 29, 2019

The two models of the Aeron Work Stool provide different levels of support based on the users preference, the Lumbar support adjusts through a five-inch range to give support to the curve of your midback or lumbar region. While the Posturefit provides custom, adjustable support at the base of the spine, or sacral region, giving your pelvis a forward tilt to prevent slouching.
