At Herman Miller, they have learned a great deal about how best to support people in the varied postures they adopt throughout the workday. With the new Aeron Chair, Herman Miller incorporated two decades’ worth of technological and ergonomic enhancements to improve the health-positive design, and widen the range of cross-performance capabilities. With updates that include a more refined tilt mechanism, adjustable PostureFit SL™ , and 8Z Pellicle® suspension, the new Aeron performs better than ever before— so you can too. Stools take the remastered Aeron chair to new heights, pairing well with higher work surfaces, tables, and countertops.


  • Zonal Support

New 8Z Pellicle offers unprecedented comfort through eight varied zones of tension in the seat and back. To better envelope the sitter, the tightest zones keep the body off the frame and in the chair, while more compliant zones conform to the sitting bones and distribute weight evenly.

  • PostureFit SL

Adjustable, individual pads support the sacrum and lumbar region of the spine to mimic a healthful standing position and prompt the posture that keeps you strong while you sit.

  • Aeration

The 8Z Pellicle suspension material allows air, body heat, and water vapor to pass through the seat and back to help maintain even and comfortable skin temperature.

  • Natural Movement

An updated tilt mechanism delivers a smoother trajectory and optimal balance point to keep people in control of their movement throughout the entire range of recline.



Just as iconic films and albums are updated for new mediums, standards, and audiences, Aeron has been remastered to meet the needs of today’s work, workers, and work environments. By coupling co-designer Don Chadwick’s vision with Herman Miller’s latest research around the science of sitting, the new Aeron works smarter than ever before.
