Herman Miller Is Now Making The Iconic Aeron Chair From Ocean-Bound Plastic

Sep 1, 2021

Herman Miller revolutionized ergonomic office seating when they introduced the now-iconic Aeron Chair in 1994, and now the brand has done it again by relaunching the chair in recycled ocean-bound plastic.

While still the exact same ergonomic wonder you know and love, the legendary design from Bill Stumpf and Don Chadwick is now constructed from mismanaged plastic waste found near waterways. The first Aeron Chair to be made from ocean-bound plastic is also a new color for the line — sleek Onyx Ultra Matte — which contains up to 2.5 lbs. of this rescued material in its frame and tilt covers. The rest of the Aeron line is set to get the same plastic update soon, and the revamp is expected to save the oceans from over 150 tons of plastic annually. It’s all part of Herman Miller’s plan to increase the amount of recycled content in the material the company uses in its products by 2030. The new ocean-bound plastic Aeron in Onyx Ultra Matte is available now and starts at $1,195.

Purchase: $1,195
