Our line of used Herman Miller Aeron chairs are designed to be, above all, biomorphic, or curvilinear, as a metaphor of human form in the visual as well as the tactile sense. There is not one straight line to be found on an Aeron chair.
The transparency of the chair as a visual element was in keeping with the idea of transparent architecture and technology. Transparency is a major design movement. Its purpose is to make technology less opaque, to communicate the inner workings of things, and to make objects less intrusive in the environment. Aeron is a nonintrusive chair.
Made largely of recycled materials, the Aeron chair is designed to last a long time, and parts that get the most wear are easily replaced and recycled. Just what you would expect in a well thought-out design.
Every material, every mechanism on Aeron advances the art and science of seating. As the first office chair in which fabric and foam were replaced with a breathable, woven suspension membrane—its innovative Pellicle seat and back—Aeron distributes your weight evenly, eliminating pressure points and heat buildup.
Knowing a chair should move with you as naturally and effortlessly as possible, Aeron’s patented Kinemat tilt mechanism allows you to recline fluidly, as your body pivots naturally at the hips, knees, and ankles.
A modest but fundamental addition to the original Aeron design, PostureFit properly supports the base of your spine, or sacral region, to help your pelvis maintain a natural forward tilt, preventing slouching and keeping your spine in alignment.
