When Aeron debuted in 1994 it was a chair unlike any the world had ever seen. It didn’t just change how people sat, but what they thought a chair could be. But a lot has changed since then, so it made sense that Aeron should change too.
So how did we improve one of the most iconic and beloved chairs in the world? We recruited co-designer Don Chadwick to reexamine the design criteria that led him and Bill Stumpf to the original in the context of today’s work and technology. With stronger, smarter materials, better adjustment capabilities, new finish options, and a healthier, more comfortable sit, we didn’t recreate or redesign the Aeron Chair—we remastered it.
Just as iconic films and albums are updated for new audiences, Aeron has been remastered to meet the needs of today’s work, workers, and work environments. By coupling co-designer Don Chadwick’s vision with Herman Miller’s latest research around the science of sitting, the new Aeron works smarter than ever before—so you can too.
Aeron’s innovative 8Z Pellicle suspension material allows air, body heat and water vapour to pass through the seat and back, aiding temperature regulation. Across the seat and back, eight latitudinal zones of varying tension deliver increased comfort and ergonomic support. PostureFit SL works with the frame and the 8Z Pellicle to support the sacrum and lumbar region of the spine to keep you strong while you sit.
While Aeron’s iconic form has remained visually unchanged, the chair has been remastered from the castors up. The updated design includes a forward shift in the frame for a more natural seated posture, a streamlined tilt mechanism for smoother movement, new intuitive controls for easier adjustment, and an updated pneumatic cylinder to support the new chair.
Guided by Stumpf’s notions of ‘visual comfort’ and Chadwick’s keen eye for aesthetic detail, Aeron was originally designed to harmonise with the environment in which it was placed. Recognising that most environments look and feel vastly different today, the new Aeron’s colours, materials, and finishes have been completely reconsidered to enhance modern environments. Graphite is the darkest, a modern rendition of the original Aeron. Here it is combined with a matching Graphite tone frame and base, offset by black vinyl arm pads.
