The Herman Miller Aeron
Celebrated for decades for its innovative, human-centered design, the Herman Miller Aeron is continually recognized as one of the best ergonomic office chairs on the market. It is viewed by many as the pinnacle of ergonomic comfort, featuring a design that prioritizes health and productivity above all else.
The Aeron Chair is available in three sizes, each with various adjustability features to accommodate a wide range of body types and wellness needs. Lauded as one of the best office chairs for back pain, the Aeron Chair employs state-of-the-art adjustable PostureFit SL lumbar support to promote proper posture and mitigate back pain. The Herman Miller Aeron’s arms, height, and tilt all also adjust to your comfort preferences.
Suspended on the Aeron’s die-cast aluminum frame are a seat and backrest made of 8Z Pellicle mesh, a pioneering woven material that marries tensile strength with moisture-wicking breathability. This ergonomic office chair’s elastomeric suspension incorporates eight zones of varying tension to ensure that you feel supported in all the right areas. The material components of the Aeron are representative of Herman Miller’s enduring commitment to sustainability; not only is the majority of the classic Aeron Chair recyclable, but the Aeron’s body will soon also incorporate recycled plastic that would have otherwise ended up polluting our oceans. The Herman Miller Aeron is available in six sleek, office-appropriate colorways; the Onyx is currently the only one made with ocean-bound plastic.
Herman Miller Aeron Sizes
Available in three sizes, the Aeron’s human-centered design was made with a diverse range of body types in mind. The Aeron Chair’s sizes are, from smallest to largest, size A, size B, and size C. The Herman Miller Aeron Chair size A is 38.5” tall, 26” wide, and 16” deep, best suited to smaller bodies that are between 4’8” and 5’9” tall, weighing between 90 and 160 lbs; however, the Aeron A-size has a total weight capacity of 300 lbs. The Herman Miller Aeron size B has the most inclusive size range; at 41” tall, 27” wide, and 16.75” deep, the Aeron Chair size B can accommodate bodies that are under 5’ to nearly 7’ tall, weighing anywhere from just over 100 lbs to its maximum of 350 lbs. With a larger silhouette that is 43” tall, 28.25” wide, and 18.5” deep, the Herman Miller Aeron size C is most appropriate for taller users at the higher end of the weight range. Like the Aeron Chair size B, the Aeron Chair size C has a weight capacity of 350 lbs.

Office chair armpads to refresh the Classic Aeron are available in vinyl and leather.
