Herman Miller has partnered with Ergonomic Office to bring the new Aeron chair to Stockholm Furniture Fair 2017, which will be the first showing of the new chair in Sweden.
When Bill Stumpf and Don Chadwick designed the Aeron in 1994, they combined a deep knowledge of human-centred design with innovative, never-before-seen technology to deliver a chair unlike any other. Aeron quickly became the best-selling and most recognisable performance chair of all time - with over 7 million sold in 134 countries, the chair is a vital tool for users around the globe and holds a rightful place in popular culture.
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 - so you can too.
Designer Don Chadwick says: “It’s still an Aeron, but it’s a whole new chair. It has retained the distinctive shape of the original chair that made it an icon, but at the same time, it has been completely redesigned from the castors up. All the changes in materials, manufacturing, and ergonomics over the last twenty years have been incorporated to create a chair that performs and functions at a much higher standard.”
