Aeron Office Chair by Herman Miller 

While its iconic form has remained largely unchanged, the Aeron Chair has been remastered from the casters up to meet the needs of today’s work. With the help of original co-designer, Don Chadwick, we thoughtfully updated the chair based on the latest research around the science of sitting, and advancements in materials, manufacturing, and technology.

Since Aeron debuted in 1994, we at Herman Miller have learned a great deal more about how best to support people in the varied postures they adopt throughout the workday. With the new chair, we incorporated two decades worth of technological and ergonomic enhancements to improve the health-positive design and widen the range of cross-performance capabilities. With updates that include a more refined tilt mechanism, adjustable PostureFit SL, and 8Z Pellicle suspension, the new Aeron performs smarter than ever before—so you can too.

Now available in a new finish - Aeron Onyx

We've always known the Aeron is good for our bodies now it’s just as good for our environment too. Meet the next generation of Aeron - Onyx Ultra Matte, a dramatically dark new finish made of ocean-bound plastic all without compromising what makes it the best work chair on Earth.

For almost 30 years, Herman Miller have been perfecting the Aeron so that it’s not only good for your body, but good for our environment too. Designed for the elements. Aeron is available in a palette of four meticulously curated material expressions centered on elements pulled from the earth - Onyx is a dramatic ultra-black shade intended to modernise Aeron and is coming soon to Matisse.

Sustainable from the start. Aeron’s legacy of sustainability and innovation continues since its introduction nearly 30 years ago. It proved pioneering in both ergonomics and material innovation, without relying on the standard use of foam, fabric, or leather found in most office chairs at the time. It’s also our first product to receive the industry-leading Cradle to Cradle V3 Silver Level certification. Aeron is composed of more than 50 percent recycled material—and now, we’ve added ocean-bound plastic, diverting more than 150 metric tons of plastic from the ecosystem every year.*

Technical Information:
Through hundreds of samples, tests, and iterations, we arrived at three tightly curated, holistic material expressions. Graphite is the darkest, a modern take on the original Aeron. Carbon offers a balanced neutral that works equally well in warm and cool environments. The mineral is the lightest, ideal for today’s more open office environments. Available in 3 sizes (A, B and C) and 3 finishes: Mineral, Graphite  and Carbon
