Herman Miller Aeron Office Chair, Size B, Graphite

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 19 reviewers.
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 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent product and service Product is excellent, and delivery service from John Lewis was equally excellent. Would recommend. 24 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wondering whether to buy? Anyone reading these reviews is probably asking themselves one question - is it worth spending nearly a thousand pounds on an office chair? When it arrived there was some doubt. It didn't immediately seem that special, apart from the rather striking appearance. But now after a while using it every day the value of this chair is apparent - you hardly notice you're sitting in it. There is nothing about the posture and functionality that distracts from working or whatever is the actviity at hand. For anyone regularly working or sitting at a desk this is certainly a worthwhile purchase. Long after the price is forgotten the benefits will be appreciated. 07 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Chair Bought this chair for my wife to help with her back problem. She thinks its great and should have had it a long time ago. Took a bit of persuading to spend this sort of money but well worth it. 04 October 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Just one thing missing im 6-2 and 100 kg and had my chair for the last 12 years & use it 12- 14 hours a day. the only thing missing is the no headrest otherwise i might have slept in it as well 28 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by The Rolls Royce of office chairs Simply the most comfortable office chair that I have ever used in 25 years of office working. I bought this for my home office, as I'd had a second-hand one in a job a few years ago. The price tag is hugely off-putting, but when one considers that the vast majority of the chair parts are under warranty for 5 years, and some up to 12 years, then it's something that should last for ages and I think that I can 'just about' justify the cost. After all, I spend most of my working life sitting, and having the best tool for any job is key to success. The chair is supremely comfortable. Netting rather than cushions gives a nicely tensioned seat and back that won't end up squashed after a couple of years of exposure to my lardy rear end, and the extremely wide array of positional settings mean that I am always positioned however I want, whether typing, using the mouse for prolonged periods, or even leaning back with my feet up to listen in to a presentation or partake in a conference call. There is separate lumbar support, and the seat is shaped to take any weight off the backs of the thighs. I couldn't be happier with the Aeron, and would highly recommend it. Though I'm not telling too many people how much I paid for an office chair :-) 13 May 2014
