Color refers to the Pellicle seat, back, and frame. Aeron has 3 tightly curated colors to choose from:

  • Graphite (dark grey, closest to black)
  • Carbon (medium grey)
  • Mineral (light grey)
Recommendation
Our most popular color is Graphite.
?

Regardless of the tilt option selected, Aeron has a knob that allows you to set the tension of leaning back in the chair.

Standard Tilt
Standard Tilt comes with a tilt tension knob that allows you to adjust the amount of effort needed to recline comfortably while feeling balanced and supported. It does not have a tilt limiter mechanism.

Tilt Limiter
Tilt Limiter lets you limit the recline range between fully upright and fully reclined. The tension control lets you adjust the amount of effort needed to recline comfortably while feeling balanced and supported. Recline range can be adjusted to one of three settings: upright, mid-, and full-recline.

Tilt Limiter & Seat Angle
Tilt Limiter lets you limit the recline range between fully upright and fully reclined. The tension control lets you adjust the amount of effort needed to recline comfortably while feeling balanced and supported. Recline range can be limited at one of three postures: upright, mid-recline, or full-recline. Seat Angle Adjustment changes the angle of the seat from horizontal to a 5-degree forward tilt for people who sit at a slightly forward angle as they work.

Recommendation:
The most common reason for return is people choosing the standard tilt instead of the tilt limiter and seat angle configuration.

?

There are 5 different options for arms on an Aeron:

No Arms
Armless supports a variety of activities that require freedom of movement.

Fixed Arms
Arms are set at the following heights:
A (Small) 7.8 inches from seat
B (Medium) 8.5 inches from seat
C (Large) 8.5 inches from seat

Height-Adjustable Arms

Fully-Adjustable Arms plus Armpad Depth
All the adjustments from the fully-adjustable arms with armpads that move forward and backward on the arms.

Recommendation
Most people choose the fully-adjustable arms because it allows you to rest your shoulders and maintain an ergonomic positure regardless of your height or desk.

?
Aeron comes standard with matching vinyl armpads. You can upgrade to leather armpads.
?

    Aeron, Remastered to Perform Today

    When Herman Miller released the Aeron chair in 1994, it quickly began to change the landscape. With a comprehensive approach to ergonomics, anthropometrics, and user functionality, it performed like no chair that had come before. In doing so, it also ended up looking like no chair that had come before. With Aeron, materials don’t simply contribute to the appearance of the chair, they are the design.

    In revisiting Aeron for today’s work and workers, every effort was made to significantly improve upon the comfort and performance of the original, while also creating a beautiful, harmonious look-and-feel through updated colors, materials, and finishes.

    Through hundreds of samples, tests, and iterations, Herman Miller 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. Mineral is the lightest, ideal for today’s more open environments.

    Created through a unique painting process, Aeron’s satin aluminum finish offers a luster redolent of high-end electronic equipment. Colors were developed to harmonize with the chair’s other components.

    Details such as these contribute to a product worthy of the Aeron name, but they are not enough. Each detail contributes to a seamless whole. To simplify the specification process, Herman Miller now offers Aeron in a range of three tightly curated, holistic material expressions: Graphite, Carbon, and Mineral.

     

    Key Features

    Even Pressure Distribution

    Pellicle , the innovative, elastomeric suspension of the original Aeron, eliminated circulation-restricting pressure points and stretched the boundaries of material design. New 8Z Pellicle™ pushes the material to a whole new zone—eight of them.

    Exceptional Breathability

    By doing away with foam and fabric, Aeron solved one of biggest prolonged sitting predicaments: the buildup of heat and humidity close to the body. Pellicle allows air, body heat, and water vapor to pass through the seat and backrest to help maintain even and comfortable skin temperatures.

    Superior Posture

    If an active body is at its strongest when standing, chest open and pelvis tilted slightly forward, it makes sense that you would be better off sitting like that too. And that’s exactly where PostureFit SL™ comes in. Adjustable, individual pads stabilize the sacrum and support the lumbar region of the spine to mimic that healthful standing position.

    Natural Movement

    Staying in one position reduces the natural pumping action of the muscles that delivers nutrients to the intervertebral disks. The Aeron chair’s tilt allows it to move with the body in such a natural way that people can shift from forward to reclining postures without even thinking about it. Today’s slimmer, updated tilt mechanism delivers an even more seamless experience of movement (and stasis) to the sitter through a smoother trajectory and optimal balance point.

    Balanced Recline

    Aeron lets you shift from forward to reclining postures without a thought. A slimmer, updated tilt mechanism delivers a seamless experience of movement and balance. Through a smoother trajectory and optimal balance point, it keeps people in contact with the seat back and in control of their movement throughout the entire range of recline.

    Customized Fit with Less Dial Turns

    The original design made it possible to adjust the amount of recline and resistance to the sitter’s liking. Depending on the sitter’s scale, this involved up to 50 turns of the tilt mechanism. Advancements in materials and engineering allowed Herman Miller to scale back the amount of turning, twisting, and time spent customizing a personal fit. Now the sitter can reach a custom recline in 13 turns or less.

    One Size Does Not Fit All

    With chairs, one size does not fit all people. Based on an end-to-the-middle design approach, Aeron comes in three sizes (A,B, and C) to provide an inclusive fit that delivers the same level of comfort to the largest range of body types of any office chair. View Sizing Chart

     

    Tilt Mechanism Options

    Standard Tilt (Standard)

    Standard Tilt comes with a tilt tension knob that allows you to adjust the amount of effort needed to recline comfortably while feeling balanced and supported. It does not have a tilt limiter mechanism.

    Tilt Limiter (Optional)

    Tilt Limiter lets you limit the recline range between fully upright and fully reclined. The tension control lets you adjust the amount of effort needed to recline comfortably while feeling balanced and supported. Recline range can be adjusted to one of three settings: upright, mid-, and full-recline.

    Tilt Limiter with Seat Angle Adjustment (Optional)

    Tilt Limiter lets you limit the recline range between fully upright and fully reclined. The tension control lets you adjust the amount of effort needed to recline comfortably while feeling balanced and supported. Recline range can be limited at one of three postures: upright, mid-recline, or full-recline.

     

    Back Support Options

    Additional back support on the Aeron Chair is optional, although, highly-recommended for those who sit for long periods of time or suffer from lower back pain.

    PostureFit SL™ (Optional)

    PostureFit SL is an optional lower lumbar back support device available on the Aeron chair. It offers the best lower back support for anyone suffering from lower back pain or discomfort. Unlike its predecessor, PostureFit SL is adjustable.

    The original PostureFit was developed to provide back support that comfortably sustains the pelvis in its natural forward tilt—the position the body holds while standing powerfully upright. It did so by adjusting to fill the void between the contours of the sacral-pelvic area and the backrest. Subsequently, PostureFit has become a critical part of every Herman Miller performance chair.

    Today, by incorporating adjustable sacral and lumbar support, PostureFit SL brings the technology to a whole new level. It supports the sacral region to nurture the natural S-shape of the spine, rotate the pelvis forward, and activate healthful posture—all while sitting upright. A secondary pad provides comfort and support to the lumbar region of the spine. Together, they help strengthen the spine to produce what Herman Miller calls “power posture.” PostureFit SL puts the sitter in complete control of his or her posture with the new Aeron Chair’s premier spinal support system.

    Please Note: PostureFit SL™ cannot be purchased separately and installed at a later date.

     

    Arm Options

    No Arms (Optional)

    Armless option supports a variety of activities that require freedom of movement.

    Stationary Arms (Optional)

      Arms are set at the following heights:
    • A (Small Chair Size): 7.8” from seat
    • B (Medium Chair Size): 8.5” from seat
    • C (Large Chair Size): 8.5” from seat

    Height-Adjustable Arms (Optional)

    Height-Adjustable Arms adjust from a height of 6.8 inches above the seat to 10.8 inches above the seat. This gives you the ability to support your arms at a comfortable height.

    Adjustable Arms (Standard)

    Adjustable Arms adjust from a height of 6.8 inches above the seat to 10.8 inches above the seat and are able to pivot 15 degrees outward and 17.5 degrees inward.

     

    Caster Options

    Standard Casters (Standard)

    Designed for standard commercial and office carpet these 2.5-inch casters are the most commonly selected caster option.

    Hardwood Casters (Optional)

    Designed for non-carpeted floors. They have a thin rubberized coating to prevent floor marring. In addition, hard-floor casters have less roll to prevent the chair from rolling across the room when you push away from your desk.

    Deep Carpet Casters (Optional)

    Designed to move easily through thicker carpet than what is found in a typical office. These 3-inch casters are slightly larger than the standard 2.5-inch casters.

     

    The Evolution of Aeron

    Designed by Bill Stumpf and Don Chadwick, 1994
    Remastered by Don Chadwick, 2016

    “How can you take something that is so well-known and rework it completely, and at the same time not lose the essence of it?” - Don Chadwick

    In the early 90s Bill Stumpf and Don Chadwick teamed up to take on a new challenge, to build a chair that could be health-positive, meet the cross-performance needs of workers everywhere, as well as be inclusively-sized for all body types and consider its environment in the process. With Aeron, they achieve this and more, an office chair the unlike any before it and the world responded by making Aeron the best-selling and most recognizable office chair of all time.

    Fast forward to the present, and the same criteria serve as the foundation for a whole new Aeron. Just as iconic films and albums are updated for new mediums, standards and audiences, Aeron has been remastered based on Herman Miller’s latest research around the science of sitting, advancements in materials, manufacturing, and technology.

    The office of 1994 would be largely unrecognizable today. With all the changes that have occurred from the internet to open offices, it only made sense that Aeron should also change to better meet the needs of people today.
