Aeron Chair


I need a new desk chair badly. And, of course, I am lusting over the Aeron Chair, designed by Don Chadwick and Bill Stumpf for Herman Miller.

Aeron-ChairStumpf and Chadwick created the ergonomic Aeron Chair in 1994. Later it became part of the design collection of New York’s MoMA. The chair is available in three sizes and conforms not only to different shapes and weights, but also to movement. It easily tilts forward and backward with every shift.

The Aeron is made from 66% recycled materials. The seat and back are made of a stretched, semi-transparent, and flexible mesh called Pellicle. It can be customized through modular extensions like lumbar support (yes, please), sacral support (dubbed “PostureFit”), fixed or adjustable armrests, and varied bases.

Depending on the chair style, Aerons start around $680 for the Aeron Basic Chair and go all the way up to $1,625 for an Aeron PostureFit Work Stool. Go to Herman Miller for purchasing information.
