Additional Information


Design story.

When Bill Stumpf and Don Chadwick designed the Herman Miller Aeron Chair (1994), they combined a deep knowledge of human-centered design with never-before-seen technology to create a task chair unlike any other. In 2016, Don Chadwick evolved his chair to incorporate 20 years’ research in the science of sitting, as well as advancements in materials. “We really started from the ground up,” he says. “The result better supports the type of work we do today.” The changes include a new suspension system, better spine support, re-engineered tilt and more. It’s more lively, more responsive and more sensitive to body size. In other words, it’s everything the world loves about Aeron, plus more. This is the authentic Aeron Chair produced by Herman Miller. Made in U.S.A.

Features and benefits.

Adjustable PostureFit SL Support: SL refers to the sacral/lumbar region, which is the base of the spine up to the midback. This backrest supports the spine while maintaining the natural forward tilt of the pelvis, with two pads that flex independently to support your lumbar and stabilize the base of the spine for a more powerful seated posture. Breathable 8Z Pellicle Suspension Seat and Back: eight latitudinal zones of varying tension provide comfortable support while permitting air circulation to keep you cool. Seat Tilt Mechanism: Whether leaning forward or reclining back, Aeron supports you through the entire range of motion, keeping your movements smooth and balanced.

Find your size.

Aeron is available in three sizes so you can find a perfect fit. Size Small is recommended for height 4'10"–5'9", weight 90–150 lbs. Size Medium for height 5'2"–6'6", weight 130–325 lbs. Size Large for height: 5'3"–6'6", weight 180–350 lbs.

  • The perfect balance of ergonomics and comfort.
  • You’ll sit naturally while also being supported.
  • Breathable fabric keeps you cool and comfortable.
  • Adjustable tilt and seat angle, plus superior back support.
  • Fully adjustable arms (height, depth and angle).
  • Constructed of 53% recycled materials.
  • 12-year warranty.

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 ...

Comfortable Chair. Delivered ready to sit. Great experience.

Excellent chair
I was hesitant to spend $1k+ on a desk chair, but I work from home and spend hundreds of hours a month at my desk. Compared to the crap chair I had before, this is another world.

I can feel the strain that's been taken off my back with the posturefit feature. The 5 degree forward tilt is the greatest feature I never knew I needed until I had it.

Chair for My Boss
I ordered the chair for my boss, our company President, who came to me one day and stated he needed a new chair. I told him he needed an Aeron Chair, so he trusted me in ordering one for him. He loves it, and actually said "it's perfect".

office chair
Purchased for my home office. Had one at work and it is the only chair I have found that I can spend 8 hours per day sitting in comfortably.

Wow, best chair I’ve ever owned.
The chair is wonderful. Should have purchased much sooner. It’s the first chair that truly fits me. Unfortunately, this has ruined my work office chair for me and not sure my company will give me an upgrade.

Good enough
I use this chair in my clinic office. sitting for only 2 hours at a time at most usually 30-45 minutes at a time. I like the locking features that keep it from reclining too far when I just need to check an email or something real quick. the chair is easy to clean (this is important in a health clinic.) the adjustable armrest are great for stowing it under desk. that's all the good things I can say. considering my home chair was only $600, not as adjustable however, I have been able to sit in it for over 24 while playing in a charity stream, this I know I would never be able to do in the Aeron I can't stand sitting in it for more than 3 hours. no head support makes it difficult to relax in the Aeron. would I pay over $1,300 for this chair? no also considering that the wheels deteriorated and marked my floors. I would expect better quality and longer life. a great concept of a chair that falls just a bit short of high end perfection. still much that can be improved on.

Worth every penny!!!
While it appears that it costs a lot of money which it does but then "You get what you pay for"!!!

Not too happy with this purchase
The color of arm-pads is not matching with the color of the chair frame. Never had this problem before. The customer service didn't help either. I wanted to return the chair, the customer service person said HM would send me a return label, but have not received it yet even after more a week long waiting.
