Herman Miller’s Special All-Black Aeron Chair Was Made For Gaming

Designed in 1992 by Don Chadwick and Bill Stumpf, the influence of the veritable Aeron chair knows no bounds. From locker rooms to recording studios, “America’s Best Selling Chair” can be found across all walks of life — it even occupies a place of its own in the Museum of Modern Art’s permanent collection.

Gaming happens to be one particularly popular application for the Aeron chair design. Featuring incredible adjustability and science-backed ergonomics, it offers unmatched lumbar support — the perfect screen-side companion for extensive bouts of electronic gaming. Part of what makes the Aeron unique is its Pellicle fabric, a breathable, mesh-like material made up of eight zones of varying tension and specifically optimized for the ideal sitting position. However, as we all know, function is only part of the equation — “look good, play good” is a phrase deserving of its due diligence too. Taking input from a wide variety of gamers, Herman Miller has given the people what they want: a matte finish, murdered-out version of the classic Aeron. Now your seating can look as good as your system. Priced at $1445, it’s available from Herman Miller in two sizes and two height ranges to best customize your fit.
