Herman Miller New Aeron Office Chair, Graphite
We like it because...
it comes in three sizes to deliver a design and fit that is inclusive rather than exclusive, providing the same great comfort to a whole range of work requirements and body types.
Marrying co-designer Don Chadwick’s vision with Herman Miller’s latest research around the science of sitting, the iconic Aeron office chair has been remastered to meet the needs of today’s work, workers, and work environments. Innovative cross-performance design means the chair fully accommodates the widest possible range of activities and postures people adopt while working – from intense forward-facing focus to relaxed contemplative recline.
When Aeron debuted in 1994, Bill Stumpf and Don Chadwick’s design was health-positive, cross-performing, inclusively sized, and environmentally sensitive. It demonstrated a pioneering step in ergonomics and material innovation, quickly gaining a place in popular culture. But a lot has changed since then, so it made sense that Aeron should change too. With stronger, smarter materials, better adjustment capabilities, new finish options, and a healthier, more comfortable sit, Herman Miller didn’t recreate or redesign the Aeron Chair – they remastered it.
New materials Aeron’s innovative 8Z Pellicle suspension material allows air, body heat and water vapour to pass through the seat and back, aiding temperature regulation. Across the seat and back, eight latitudinal zones of varying tension deliver increased comfort and ergonomic support. PostureFit SL works with the frame and the 8Z Pellicle to support the sacrum and lumbar region of the spine to keep you strong while you sit.
Updated design While Aeron’s iconic form has remained visually unchanged, the chair has been remastered from the castors up. The updated design includes a forward shift in the frame for a more natural seated posture, a streamlined tilt mechanism for smoother movement, new intuitive controls for easier adjustment, and an updated pneumatic cylinder to support the new chair.
New colours Guided by Stumpf’s notions of ‘visual comfort’ and Chadwick’s keen eye for aesthetic detail, Aeron was originally designed to harmonise with the environment in which it was placed. Recognising that most environments look and feel vastly different today, the new Aeron’s colours, materials, and finishes have been completely reconsidered to enhance modern environments. Graphite is the darkest, a modern rendition of the original Aeron. Here it is combined with a matching Graphite tone frame and base, offset by black vinyl arm pads.

About Bill Stumpf and Don Chadwick
Between Bill Stumpf’s flair for function and Don Chadwick’s eye for elegance, the two possessed all the right components to create revolutionary, identifiable performance chairs. In the 1990s, Stumpf’s deep understanding of ergonomics, Chadwick’s rich feel for aesthetics, and Herman Miller’s rigorous research and engineering power delivered the Aeron Chair – a seat that became synonymous with comfort and recognised for its dematerialised design. Using his and Stumpf’s initial criteria for the Aeron Chair, Chadwick is the sole designer to work with Herman Miller on the new version.
