Designed by Bill Stumpf and Don Chadwick, 1994

When designers Bill Stumpf and Don Chadwick set out to create a chair that was health-positive, cross-performing, inclusively-sized, and environmentally sensitive, they arrived at a design unlike the world had ever seen. Aeron demonstrated a pioneering step in ergonomics and material innovation, and provided a comfortable solution without the standard use of foam, fabric, or leather. It changed people’s perception of what an office chair could be—and in doing so it soon found a place in popular culture.

Remastered by Don Chadwick, 2016

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, and today’s world of work.

The office of 1994 would be largely unrecognizable today. With all the changes that have occurred, it only made sense that Aeron should also change to better meet the needs of today’s work, workers, and workplaces.
