Well known for its outstanding ergonomics and distinctive design, the Aeron® chair adapts naturally to provide a comfortable work chair all day long. Designed by Bill Stumpf & Don Chadwick in 1994, the Aeron Classic Chair is produced by Herman Miller and continues to be the most widely recognized office chair design.
The Aeron chair is specifically designed to reduce pressure and conform to the body to create maximum comfort. The tall contoured back relieves pressure on the lower spine. Wide sloped and soft armrests, along with a waterfall edge seat, helps to further reduce uncomfortable pressure and increase circulation. The unique Pellicle® suspension system is strong, form-fitting and breathable, preventing the body from overheating. Standard features included on all Aeron Chairs are a height adjustment lever and a tension knob. The tension knob allows you to control how easily the chair moves into a reclined position.
The Aeron Classic Chair will be discontinued by the manufacturer on March 23, 2018.
Build Your Aeron Chair
One of the most unique aspects of the Aeron Chair is that it is available in three sizes. This allows you to choose the size that provides the best support and comfort for you. The size difference affects the width and depth of the seat as well as the width and height of the back. Finding the right fit is very important. A reference chart is provided under Images to help you determine which size (A, B or C) might be the best fit for you. We also highly recommend visiting our store to sit in all three sizes before making a decision.
Choose an option that is as simple or as adjustable as you would like. The standard tilt allows you to recline in your chair. The standard tilt does not offer any controls for the tilt function. The tilt limiter is a lever that allows you to set the angle where your chair will stop reclining. This means you can also prevent your chair from reclining when the tilt limiter is set in the most upright position. The seat angle adjustment allows you to move the seat of the chair into a forward tilting position. This slight forward angle can be beneficial for those who like to sit upright or lean forward while working.
Fixed arms are stationary. Height adjustable arms move up and down by releasing the lever at the back of the arm, sliding the arm into your desired position and using the lever to lock the arm into position. Fully adjustable arms pivot from side to side while also having the height adjustment feature.
The revolutionary PostureFit® “supports the way your pelvis tilts naturally forward, so that your spine stays aligned and you avoid back pain”. The level of pressure provided by PostureFit is adjusted easily with the turn of a knob. Adjustable Lumbar offers an alternative back support option. It is height adjustable and provides two levels of pressure. Simply flip the pad to the thinner or thicker side to find the most comfortable support.
Several fabric options are available so you can design your Aeron Chair to fit your personal preferences and interior. All Pellicle options will provide the same exceptional support and performance.
Carpet castors are made of hard black plastic and are ideal for thin carpeted surfaces. Hard floor or carpet castors are made from a black rubberized material that glides more smoothly and quietly on hard surfaces. 3″ hard floor or carpet castors are also rubberized and are offered for those who need to be able to roll over carpet that is slightly thicker.
