Herman Miller Aeron Office Chair

Product information

Occupying a place in the Museum of Modern Art's permanent collection, the Aeron is a chair that offers ergonomic comfort while adding a contemporary aesthetic into your home office environment.

Thanks to unique design features, this chair adapts naturally to your body type. PostureFit supports the way your pelvis tilts forward naturally, ensuring that your spine stays aligned to avoid back pain and allow you to sit for hours in complete comfort. Along with PostureFit, Aeron's other ergonomic design features include a high, wide, contoured back that takes the pressure off your lower spine, and slightly sloping armrests to provide natural and comfortable support.

The dipped front edge of the seat takes the pressure off your thighs to promote good blood circulation and healthy posture, and thanks to the patented Kinemat tilt mechanism your neck, shoulders, hips, knees and ankles can pivot naturally. All of these design nuances enable the Aeron chair to move effortlessly with your body, allowing you to focus on the task in hand.

Rather than foam cushioning, Aeron is made using Pellicle, a unique suspension material. Pellicle conforms to your body and cradles it to keep pressure even, while cooling you at the same time to avoid the heat build-ups that cause aches and pains.

This chair is also an environmentally friendly option: almost two-thirds of each chair is made of recycled materials, and it is 94% recyclable.

Aeron comes in 3 sizes:
Size A is best suited to people of up to 5'2 in height.
Size B is best suited to people between 5'2 and 6'0 in height.
Size C is best suited to those over 6 feet tall.

Q & As

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 27 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Expected better quality at this price Chair arrived with a few snags; I cut myself on a sharp metal splinter on left hand seat screw and found some annoying moulding tags on the front underside of each armrest - removed with a sharp craft blade. The open weave mesh seat material is certainly very comfortable but dust from clothing tends to go right through and build up on the back and underside framework . Finally, the backrest adjuster fitted to my chair differed from the one shown in the instruction booklet. Surely an updated booklet would have been more helpful and should have been supplied. 27 April 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Beware if you are over 60. I though this chair was going to be perfect having admired it several times in the store and sat in it for 10 minutes while the salesman praised its comfort and build qualities. However, after sitting in it for more than an hour at home, I became very uncomfortable and had to use my older chair. The material is not as accommodating or forgiving as foam so beware, It may give you pins and needles after a time. My guess is this chair is more suited to people under 60, I am 67. I am pleased to say that Customer Support were very understanding and gave a full refund. 24 March 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Not cheap but likely to last for a long time I have had another office chair for a few years but it was never comfortable and ultimately a bad buy. Although this option is not cheap the good build quality and long warranty means that you are likely to own it for several years. If you sit at a computer working for any period, more than just casual use, this is a great chair. You need to sit back on the seat with the support adjusted correctly. I find the forward tilt useful. If you have lower back problems then it is definitely worth trying. I would recommend sitting on one in store to see if you like it. It's an iconic chair which is still popular after over 20 years since it was designed. 20 February 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Seating Perfection Expensive, but if you spend all day glued to the office chair, this is the one to have. My cats sit on it all day when I am not around, so it must be comfortable. 02 February 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very comfy office chair This was bought as a replacement for my old office chair that I had for over 15 years. Replaced as leather wearing in places. Look long and hard at replacement chairs and this was suggested by a friend who had heard about their comfort and reliability. I was a bit reluctant to spend this amount of money but took the plunge after reading all the reviews and have been very pleased with it. It took a bit of getting used to and adjusted as my old chair was high backed and din't have so many options to fit but now find it is much comfier than my old one. Well worth the money! 10 November 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Expensive but worth it This is a proper office chair - essential if you are sitting for extended periods. Although at the higher end of the cost range - it is a comfortable chair with a long guarantee. 27 October 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Size 'C' for me! I already knew this chair was a great product so I went ahead and ordered the Aeron Size 'B.' I now have the very slightly bigger Size 'C' thanks to (John Lewis Customer Service) my advise would be if you think the Size 'B' is for you, sit in a 'C' size first, it just gives you that little extra wriggle room. Am I pleased with this Herman Miller Aeron Chair? Absolutely, I am very, very pleased with it and look forward to many years ahead in this very same chair. 27 August 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Aeron review excellent chair, love the many ways to customize it. I think it's worth stretching the budget if you really need a great chair for extended periods of sitting with highly customizable ergonomics. I can't give it all stars because it's just too expensive..that said, I'd buy it again. But ouch... 04 August 2015
