Care and Maintenance

 

With regular care and maintenance, your Herman Miller product will provide many years of superior performance and satisfaction. To maintain quality, please follow the cleaning procedures outlined here.

The instructions for the care and maintenance of Herman Miller products are provided to you as a service. No warranty is implied since results may vary.

Divider

Frame, Base, and Standard Armpads

Normal cleaning
 

Wash surface with a soft cloth soaked in mild detergent and warm water. Rinse thoroughly and dry with a soft cloth. 

Do not use solvents or abrasive kitchen cleaners.

8Z Pellicle Suspension Material

Normal cleaning
 

Vacuum fabric as needed using an upholstery attachment. Vacuuming picks up dust and reduces the need for professional cleaning. 

Do not brush fabric or use a vacuum attachment with a rotary brush. Brushing may permanently damage the nap or change the character of the fabric.

Spot Cleaning
 

Immediately soak up the stain with a soft absorbent cloth.

Do not dry the stain completely or it may set. The longer a stain is allowed to remain on a fabric, the more difficult it is to remove.

Water-based stains such as coffee, soft drinks, fruit juices, or milk
 

Use a water-based cleaner (specifically made for cleaning fabric) or a solution of mild (alkaline) warm soapy water (not overly soapy) applied with a damp clean cloth or sponge. Work the cleaner into a lather or foam.

Never use hot water; it will set the stain. Avoid scrubbing.

Oil-based stains such as lipstick, grease, or salad dressing
 

Use a dry cleaning solution applied with a damp clean cloth or sponge. Test the cleaning solution on a small, concealed area first. If there is no spotting, ringing, or damage to the fabric or its dyes, apply the cleaning solution to the soiled area with light, quick strokes. Begin at the outside of the stain and work toward the center, being careful not to over-saturate the fabric.

K2R is also a product that can be used. See product label for complete instructions. Do not over apply water or any liquid solution to fabric. Excessive wetting of the fabric with any liquid solution may result in permanent damage to the material. Do not rub too vigorously or you may damage the nap of the fabric or break fibers. Several light applications are better than one heavy application. Soak up all remaining solution and then use another clean cloth or sponge dipped in cool water to remove any residue. Let fabric dry thoroughly and then vacuum well before using. If the stain resists cleaning, contact a professional cleaner.

Large Areas
 

If large areas are soiled, contact a professional cleaning firm.

I think I really like it!!
I decided to purchase an expensive office chair from an alternate leading brand (NOT the Aeron) about two years ago and had been using it ever since. I work from home doing graphic design and spend most of the day at my desk in front of the computer. Well... somehow I just could never feel perfectly comfortable in the other chair... it just didn't support my back in the way that I needed ...especially my lower back...and I would find myself slouching forward most of the time.... it really didn't do much to help my posture alas :(
SOOOO.... a couple of months ago I decided to start reconsidering looking at and possibly purchasing an Aeron. Of course because of the HUUUUUGE price tag I went back and forth and back and forth on this... but finally decided to go ahead and try it out. Had the 30-day return option not been available I probably wouldn't have taken the plunge...so THANK YOU, Herman Miller, for having that return option available... it is VERY HELPFUL for all of us who really would like to try it but are on the fence about it.

Aaaaaaaaaanyhoo, before I continue rambling, I finally received it (way quicker than expected actually...just a few days after placing the order!!)... and LOVED being able to just roll it out of the box, fully assembled, and sit down. Please note that I was FULLY prepared to be disappointed...so it took me a while before deciding as to whether I liked it or not. I got the "fully loaded" version, with Posturefit SL.

Truth be told, I somehow wish there could be some further adjustments possible with the Posturefit (the main reason I am knocking a star off my review)... just to give a little more support...but so far it feels pretty good.

Straight off the bat I LOVE LOVE LOVE the forward tilt option (this was like a game changer for me) and also being able to rock (have the chair move forward and back with me) as I work....another game changer. This "fluid" rocking movement of the chair is simply superb...I just love it!!!

The other small improvement I feel could be made would be with the arms... I wish they could be a little more adjustable so that they could also be moved a little more inward when/if desired ...as is possible with the other chair that I had. Pls note that I DO have the fully adjustable arms but don't feel they are AS adjustable as my other chair was.

So... bottom line is that I think I REALLY like it. I find that I am able to better concentrate on my work and completely forget about any back pain during the day (that is usually caused from my poor posture while I am working).... which means that this chair must be doing a good job!!! :)

Really is that good
The cost was a bit startling but I figured I had no choice. I've tried many chairs and nothing gets rid of the aches and pains I feel from sitting all day... that is until Aeron came along.
I took the plunge and so glad I did. This chair is everything they promised and I love it.

Overall Positive, but...
Had a classic version of the Aeron in my office years ago and contemplated purchasing one for my home office for the past few years since I work long hours at the desk. Made the leap and bought a fully adjustable model with the lumbar support. Had a good order and delivery experience. After using it for a couple of months, it is the best chair I have used in the home office, but doesn't quite live up to my memory of the classic version. A few observations:
Pros: Overall, I love the quality and the adjustment options.
Cons: First, the seat base itself has almost an inch of "play" moving up and down. I don't mean the tilt option, but it moves up and down rotating where the hip bolts join it to the frame. Find it a distraction. Second, i ordered the adjustable posture fit SL support option, but have yet to get it adjusted to where I feel it is giving great support (maybe just operator error/learning). Overall positive, but if I had to do it again I would probably opt for spending less and trying a refurbished / used chair to start with.

This is a great version of the aeron
I’ve tried the previous aeron in size a and b and my legs felt like they were getting pinched, so I decided to try the new one, and got it made just the way I wanted with adjustable height arms and tilt forward and lock and I love it! I think it’s due to the stiffer tension on parts of the seat and it just works. I highly recommend this chair, I’ll never get rid of it.

Best Chair I've Ever Had
I had a bad fall accompanied by a number of temporary aches and pains. My office chair was very uncomfortable, making aches and pains worse. The Aeron not only let me work painlessly for extended periods, I believe it helped me recover from the accident more quickly. Every adjustment contributes to comfort. I especially like the adjustable arms, lumbar support, mesh seat that allows for air circulation, and very adjustable forward and backward tilt. Saving up for another for my wife.

Great chair for tall guys
I've had this same type of chair at work and 'liked' it. Finally ordered my own for home office and love it. I got the large chair (size c) and it fits my 6'3" frame well. I was worried it would be extremely wide, but it is not. I rolls effortlessly on hard wood floors.

Arm Adjustments on the Aeron Chair

What is the difference between height adjustable arms, adjustable arms and fully adjustable arms?

My guess is the following, but I really need to know!

Height = just up and down?

Adjustable = in and out (meaning toward seat base or out further away from seat base?

Fully Adjustable = both?

Thanks,

Cynthia
A shopper on Oct 20, 2016
Best Answer: The differences between the arm options are below:

Height-Adjustable Arms adjust from a height of 6.8 inches above the seat to 10.8 inches above the seat. This gives you the ability to support your arms at a comfortable height.

Adjustable Arms adjust from a height of 6.8 inches above the seat to 10.8 inches above the seat and are able to pivot 15 degrees outward and 17.5 degrees inward.

Fully Adjustable Arms adjust from a height of 6.8 inches above the seat to 10.8 inches above the seat, slide backward and forward over a range of 2.5 inches, and pivot 15 degrees outward and 17.5 degrees inward.

On the cusp between B and C - which size?

I am just a hair shy of 6 feet, 5'11+3/4" let's say, and 175 pounds. I'm curious whether B or C is right for me; all of the Aeron chairs I've sat on in the past were C I believe, but I'm wondering if they were always actually a little large and the chair is "supposed" to feel a bit more snug. Or at my size, is C definitely the way to go?
A shopper on May 23, 2017
Best Answer: The Aeron size B chair is recommend for 5'3"-5'11" and the Aeron size C chair is recommend for 6'0" and above.

The Remastered Aeron Chair has zonal support in the back and seat which will allow for a "more snug" fit than the Classic Aeron Chair.

Based off your height, we would recommend the C size Remastered Aeron Chair.

do you have chairs that come with headrest?
A shopper on May 3, 2017
Best Answer: Any headrest versions of our chairs are not manufactured or supported by Herman Miller. The addition of an aftermarket attachment to the chair may void the warranty and potentially void the full ergonomic benefit of the chair.

Our High Performance Seating - Embody, Aeron, Mirra, and SAYL - support the spine at the sacrum (via PostureFit) and thoracic. By doing this, we stabilize the lumbar and cervical (neck). When you are sitting in the chairs correctly, your spine and neck are aligned and a headrest is not needed.

Can I specify the color of the pellicle material? A friend has "Carbon Classic Pellicle" but I do not see this option.
A shopper on Mar 8, 2017
Best Answer: No, Pellicle colors and patterns from classic Aeron Chair are not available on new Aeron.

One of the benefits of new Aeron is the simplification in specifying the Pellicle. Even though Pellicle is still a specification step, the Pellicle �color� is tied to the frame finish you choose and there is only one option presented when you arrive at the Pellicle step.�

Please contact the Herman Miller Store if you have any further questions at 888-798-0202 or hmstore@hermanmiller.com.
What material is the base made of?

I'm probably the world's clumsiest person; about the only thing I haven't broken is my work Aeron chair (old style).

I just want to confirm that the base of the new model (regardless of finish) is still metal, before I buy one for home use.
A shopper on Feb 16, 2017
Best Answer: The 5-star base shall be either die-cast aluminum, with either a polished, smooth powder-coat epoxy finish or a glass-filled nylon material (plastic). Each base has the following options:

Graphite Frame

Graphite Base Finish - Glass-filled nylon material

Polished Aluminum Base Finish - Polished die-cast aluminum

Carbon Frame

Dark Carbon Base Finish - Glass-filled nylon material

Satin Carbon Base Finish - Smooth powder-coat epoxy on die-cast aluminum

Polished Aluminum Base Finish - Polished die-cast aluminum

Continuous Usage 8 or 12hrs

Is thi chair design 24hrs 365 usage such as an operation control center?
A shopper on Dec 5, 2016
Best Answer: The Aeron Chair is rated for 24/7/365 usage and would be ideal option.

Please contact the Herman Miller Store if you have any further questions at 888-798-0202 or hmstore@hermanmiller.com.
Adding PostureFit

I know it is recommended to visit an authorized dealer but is it possible to buy the PostureFit addon subsequently and install it at home myself?
A shopper on Dec 1, 2016
Best Answer: The PostureFit SL requires a back change as there are two holes at the bottom of the back that Posturefit SL is anchored to. The Classic Aeron PostureFit cannot be added to the new Aeron Chair due to the different dimensions of the Classic vs the Remastered version.

Please contact the Herman Miller Store if you have any further questions at 888-798-0202 or hmstore@hermanmiller.com.
What is the weight limit on the new Remastered Aeron?

As per the size reference chart on the Remastered Aeron page, it seems that the upper weight limit of the Size C its 350 lbs, is this correct? This means that the new Aeron has an increased weight limit over the old one, correct?
A shopper on Oct 30, 2016
Best Answer: The Aeron chair size B and C is tested and warranted up to a maximum of 350 lbs, which is an increase of 50 lbs over the classic Aeron chair. The size A is tested and warranted up to a maximum of 300 lbs.
