Description

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.

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.

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

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. Frame, Base, and Standard Armpads Normal cleaning Wash surface 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. 8Z Pellicle Suspension Material Normal cleaning Vacuum fabric as needed using an upholstery attachment. 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. Spot Cleaning 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. Water-based stains such as coffee, soft drinks, fruit juices, or milk 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. Oil-based stains such as lipstick, grease, or salad dressing Use a dry cleaning solution applied with a damp clean cloth or sponge. 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. K2R is also a product that can be used. See product label for complete instructions. Do not over apply water or any liquid solution to fabric. Excessive wetting of the fabric with any liquid solution may result in permanent damage to the material. 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 solution and then use another clean cloth or sponge dipped in cool water to remove any residue. Let fabric dry thoroughly and then vacuum well before using. If the stain resists cleaning, contact a professional cleaner. Large Areas If large areas are soiled, contact a professional cleaning firm.
