Iconic office chair Aeron was designed in 1994 by Don Chadwick and Bill Stumpf for Herman Miller. They combined a deep knowledge of ergonomic design with innovative technology. Armchair was different from everything that was sold before. Designers did not just change the seat itself, but what they thought a chair could be.
But today’s work and workers have changed a lot. The Aeron chair has been recently renovated – ergonomically, functionally, anthropometric, environmentally – in accordance with the needs of today’s workers.
New design by Don Chadwick, in collaboration with Herman Miller, now is using a stronger, smarter materials, better adjustment capabilities, new finish options, and a healthier, more comfortable sit. They didn’t recreate the Aeron Chair — they remastered it.
For those interested – a short video about the history of the chair and its renewal.
