Classic Aeron chair

 Bill Stumpf
It's the most well-known ergonomic office chair ever made. With good reason. As the first to replace fabric and foam with a breathable, woven suspension membrane—its innovative Pellicle seat and back—Aeron distributes your weight evenly, eliminating pressure points and heat buildup. The Kinemat tilt lets you recline fluidly, and PostureFit puts support where you need it most while seated—at the base of your spine.

    Aeron Chair

    The revolution in ergonomics that’s become
    a design icon

    Aeron’s functionality shows through, creating a distinctive look that invites you to sit and experience the chair for yourself. From the transparency of the Pellicle suspension material to the chair’s curvilinear lines, Bill Stumpf and Don Chadwick designed Aeron around people, creating an aesthetic all their own, and starting a revolution in ergonomics.

    With its aeration, inclusive sizing, support for the natural ways the human body moves when seated, and environmentally sensitive design, Aeron challenged practically every convention about office chairs. Every material, every mechanism on Aeron advances the art and science of seating.

    • Aeron Chair in Three Sizes

      Three Sizes, Easy Adjustments

      The Aeron Chair is available in three different sizes to fit just about anyone. Easy-to-make adjustments let you fine-tune the fit for your body.

      Superior Support for Your Body

      PostureFit properly supports the base of your spine, or sacral region, to help your pelvis maintain a natural forward tilt, thus keeping your spine fully aligned.

    • Office Chair Graphic

      Moves with You, Naturally

      Aeron’s patented Kinematic tilt mimics the body’s natural pivot points—the hips, knees, and ankles—so the chair works with, not against, your body, and you recline fluidly.

    • Aeron Chair Pellicle Fabric

      Conforms to Your Shape

      Much more than a mesh, Aeron’s Pellicle suspension features elliptically shaped elastomeric threads woven together to create a topographically neutral surface. It conforms to each person who sits in the chair, and distributes weight evenly, eliminating pressure points and heat buildup.

    • Aeron Chair

      Contoured for Your Comfort

      The high, wide, contoured back takes the pressure off your lower spine. Armrests slope slightly down in the back for the most natural and comfortable support. The "waterfall" front edge of the seat takes the pressure off your thighs, so your blood keeps circulating and you stay alert and focused.

      Distinctive, Sophisticated Look

      Aeron has an aesthetic all its own. It’s no wonder the chair was added to the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art even before the first one was sold. A selection of sophisticated materials and a choice of three Pellicle weave patterns make the chair well-suited to a variety of tastes and surroundings.

    Revolutionizing the
    office chair.

    "We wanted a totally new kind of chair."

    Think About How We Sit

    Designer Bill Stumpf once admitted, "I design for myself. I can't tell when you sit in a chair whether your butt feels good, but I know when mine does." The Aeron chair, he said, was designed around the idea of "I want to sit on this really bad."

    It took seven years to develop Aeron, and that development started in an unlikely way. Stumpf and his design partner, Don Chadwick, were involved in a Herman Miller research project that was investigating what older people needed in terms of long-term sitting. They discovered that one of the big problems was the heat that builds up between you and your chair when you sit in it for four hours. Three years later, when Stumpf and Chadwick were beginning to think about a new work chair design, that discovery came into play.

    Function Is Form

    The unique form of the Aeron chair expresses its purpose and shows off the composition of its parts and the way they connect. The transparent and reflective nature of its surfaces gives it an airy quality. It becomes a part of the person who uses it and the environment that surrounds it. And it's kind to the overall environment too. Made largely of recycled materials, the Aeron chair is designed to last a long time and to be almost entirely recyclable at the end of its useful life.

    They threw out all preconceived notions of what a work chair should look like.

    Early Model of Aeron Chair

    Starting With a Clean Slate

    "We wanted a totally new kind of chair," Stumpf and Chadwick said. So they decided to throw out all preconceived notions of what an ergonomic work chair should look like, how it should work, what it should be. They started with a clean slate, and what they came up with revolutionized the whole idea of an office chair.

    There was no upholstery or padding. The Pellicle suspension that replaced the cushions let air circulate, so bodies that sat in the chair for hours on end didn't overheat. There were no straight lines on the chair, because the human form has no straight lines. The curvilinear shape Stumpf and Chadwick developed distributed weight in a natural way that relieved pressure points and kept blood circulating. There weren't big, comfy models for the top brass and stripped-down models for the lowliest clerks. It was a democratic chair that was transparent and nonintrusive in the environment, yet had a look so distinctive that New York's Museum of Modern Art snatched one up for its permanent collection.

    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.


    Base, Frame, and Non-Leather Arm Pads

    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.

    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 wipe 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.

    Leather Arm Pads

    Normal cleaning

    Vacuum or dust frequently with a clean, dry cloth. If leather is soiled, it can be wiped with a soft, damp cloth and a lather of any mild soap and a minimum amount of lukewarm water. Wipe clean with a damp cloth and dry with a clean, soft cloth.

    Do not spot clean leather; clean the entire surface.

    Spots and spills

    Wipe excess liquid immediately with a clean cloth or sponge; let the leather air dry.

    If further cleaning is necessary, sponge the entire surface of the chair arm with clean, lukewarm water. Let the leather air dry; never use a hair dryer or other heat source to dry leather.

    Stubborn spots and stains

    Apply a mild, nonabrasive soap solution with a clean, wet sponge. Rinse well and let air dry.

    Butter, oil, or grease

    Wipe the leather with a clean, dry cloth and let the remainder of the oil dissipate into the leather.

    Do not apply water or try to wash a grease spot. Do not use saddle soap, cleaning solvents, oils, furniture polishes, varnishes, abrasive cleaners, detergents, or ammonia on leather; they will ruin the finish, causing it to become and cracked. If the stain remains, contact a professional cleaner.

    Large Areas

    If large areas are soiled, contact a professional cleaning firm.
