Herman Miller’s Aeron Chair is now more sustainable than ever!
The renowned Aeron Chair by Herman Miller has been modified to be more sustainable by incorporating ocean-bound plastic into the body—all without sacrificing what makes it the best work chair on the planet.
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 modernise 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 colour palette.
Aeron lineup includes four colours inspired by the elements, three sizes, and two stool heights—something for nearly everyone.
