Look around any office today and you’ll likely see a good deal of the chairs use mesh instead of cushions on their backs and seats. The chair responsible for this quiet revolution in office equipment is the Herman Miller Aeron, and 20 years after its first release it’s receiving an update.
The idea behind the first iteration of the Aeron produced in the early 1990s was to create something for everyone. An office chair that could fit all people and provide the right amount of suspension and responsiveness no matter your size or shape. Now, Herman Miller has taken it all a step further. One of the standout additions to the offering is the use of the new 8Z Pellicle fabric. Along both the seat and back of the chair, the material creates 8 different latitudinal zones of varying tension, making it so the sitter feels as if their body is being enveloped. In addition to the updated fabric, the chair is getting a smoother tilt mechanism, posture-fit SL spinal support with two adjustable pads, and three frame colors to choose from. All of this makes for a much more comfortable and ergonomic chair that is well worth having at your desk. Prices are set at $780. [Purchase]
