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 Herman Miller improve one of the most iconic and beloved chairs in the world? Co-designer Don Chadwick re-examined the design criteria that led him and Bill Stumpf to Aeron in the context of today’s work and technology. 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. With stronger, smarter materials, better adjustment capabilities, new finish options, and a healthier, more comfortable sit, Aeron has been remastered – ergonomically, functionally, anthropometrically, and environmentally—for today’s work, workers and work environments.
AERON REMASTERED: NEW FEATURES
The new 8Z Pellicle mesh allows air, body heat, and water vapour to pass through the seat and backrest to help maintain even and comfortable skin temperature. The Pellicle provides eight latitudinal zones of varying tension across the seat and back to deliver increased comfort and ergonomic support where it’s needed most.
An updated tilt mechanism delivers a smoother trajectory and optimal balance point to keep people in control of their movement throughout the entire range of recline.
With PostureFit SL, adjustable, individual pads stabilize the sacrum and support the lumbar region of the spine to mimic a healthful standing position.
Aeron’s frame angle has been thoughtfully reconsidered to better support the body in upright positions and across a wider range of postures afforded by today’s work and tools.
The remastered chair offers updated user adjustments for intuitive, fine-tuning; advancements in engineering have allowed Herman Miller to scale back the amount of turning, twisting, and time spent customising a personal fit. Now the sitter can reach a custom recline with minimal effort.
Aeron is now offered in three holistic material palettes to suit modern office environments: Mineral, Carbon, and Graphite. These palettes cover all parts of the chair’s design from the castors up.
The original Aeron set new standards for sustainability and the updated design goes further by reducing the weight of the chair and achieving a Cradle to Cradle Certified Silver, BIFMA level 3, and GREENGUARD Gold Certified status.
