Making the best, better for Earth

Exact same chair, just a little more sustainable.


We updated the Aeron Chair, adding ocean-bound plastic to the body—all without compromising what makes it the best work chair on Earth.

Aeron has always been sustainable, designed with less material for more performance. And now it's made with ocean-bound plastic. See how we added this plastic waste.

A pioneering design moves forward

Ergonomic to the core, Aeron was designed for a wide range of body types, thanks to the extensive research from designers Bill Stumpf and Don Chadwick nearly 30 years ago. Its launch was pioneering in the office furniture industry—and it still is, thanks to updated research and material innovation, including the addition of ocean-bound plastic to the body of the chair. We've always known Aeron is good for our bodies—now it’s just as good for our environment too.

Where comfort meets support

The Aeron Stool takes our benchmark for ergonomic seating to new heights, pairing with higher work surfaces, tables, and countertops. Since its launch, Herman Miller has learned a lot about how to best support people—and their postures—during the workday. Aeron offers smarter weight distribution through 8Z Pellicle, an adjustable PostureFit SL for total spinal support, and balanced recline and natural movement thanks to Harmonic 2 Tilt.

Sustainable from the start

Aeron’s legacy of sustainability and innovation continues since its introduction nearly 30 years ago. It proved pioneering in both ergonomics and material innovation, without relying on the standard use of foam, fabric, or leather found in most office chairs at the time. Aeron is composed of more than 50 percent recycled material—and now, we’ve added ocean-bound plastic, diverting more than 150 metric tons of plastic from the ecosystem every year.*

Designed for the elements

Aeron is available in a palette of four meticulously curated material expressions centered on elements pulled from the earth. Onyx is a dramatic ultra-black shade intended to modernize Aeron. Graphite is a distinctive dark gray, with a classic textured finish. Carbon offers a balanced neutral that works equally well in warm and cool environments. Mineral is the lightest, ideal for open floorplans. Each component of the chair was thoughtfully designed, creating a fundamentally harmonious color palette.

Greater heights

The Aeron Stool offers user benefits not typically found in performance work stools: The footrest platform is three times wider than the typical footring and was designed to provide a large, comfortable area to support your feet. This reduces the pressure and resulting discomfort that’s usually created with a smaller footring. When you adjust the seat height, the footrest moves with the seat, so you don’t have to worry about having to readjust the footrest height as well. Treads along the footrest also ensure that getting in and out of the stool feels comfortable and easy.
