Designers: Bill Stumpf and Don Chadwick
It's the most well-known ergonomic office chair ever made. With good reason. As the first office chair to replace fabric and foam with a breathable, woven suspension membrane—the innovative Pellicle seat and back—the classic Aeron Chair distributes your weight appropriately, eliminating pressure points and heat buildup. The Kinemat Tilt lets you recline fluidly, and PostureFit puts back support where you need it most while seated—at the base of your spine.
Functionality shows through in the design of the classic Aeron, creating a distinctive look that invites you to sit and experience the chair for yourself. From the transparency of the Pellicle suspension material to the chair’s curvilinear lines, Bill Stumpf and Don Chadwick designed their groundbreaking office chair around people, creating an aesthetic all their own, and starting a revolution in ergonomics.
With its aeration, inclusive sizing, support for the natural ways the human body moves when seated, and responsive design, the chair challenged practically every convention about office chairs. Every material, every mechanism advanced the art and science of seating.

The classic Aeron is available in three different sizes to fit just about anyone. Easy-to-make adjustments let you fine-tune the fit for your body.
PostureFit properly supports the base of your spine, or sacral region, to help your pelvis maintain a natural forward tilt, thus keeping your spine fully aligned.
The patented Kinematic Tilt mimics the body’s natural pivot points—the hips, knees, and ankles—so the chair works with, not against, your body, and you recline fluidly.
Much more than a mesh, the Pellicle suspension on the classic Aeron features elliptically shaped elastomeric threads woven together to create a topographically neutral surface. It conforms to each person who sits in the chair and distributes weight appropriately, eliminating pressure points and heat buildup.
The high, wide, contoured back takes the pressure off your lower spine. Armrests slope slightly down in the back for the most natural and comfortable support. The "waterfall" front edge of the seat takes the pressure off your thighs, so your blood keeps circulating and you stay alert and focused.
With an aesthetic all its own, it’s no wonder the classic Aeron was added to the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art even before the first one was sold. A selection of sophisticated materials and a choice of three Pellicle weave patterns make classic Aeron well-suited to a variety of tastes and surroundings.
