Global design manufacturer Herman Miller, Inc. has unveiled a new Aeron chair that is now available in South Africa exclusively through long-term local distributor All Office. The Aeron chair first launched in 1994 and was unlike any chair the world had ever seen. Instead of a padded throne, designers Bill Stumpf and Don Chadwick did away with foam and fabric to create a true machine for sitting. Uniting human-centred design with Herman Miller’s leadership in innovative technology and materials, 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.
Herman Miller’s new Aeron retains the distinctive silhouette of the iconic chair, but every component of the design has been updated to raise the bar for performance seating. With the input of original co-designer Don Chadwick, and a dedicated team of scientists, engineers, materials specialists, and researchers who worked on the project for over two years, Herman Miller has enhanced the chair by combining the latest insights in anthropometrics and ergonomics with two decades of advancement in materials, manufacturing, and technology. The resulting chair is recognisably an Aeron, but features stronger and smarter materials, better adjustment capabilities, intuitive controls, enhanced aeration, and a health-positive, more comfortable sit.
Aeron now offers a completely new experience of sitting—with a re-engineered tilt mechanism, adjustable PostureFit SL spinal support, and groundbreaking 8Z Pellicle zoned suspension working in concert to deliver enhanced comfort. For individuals, the chair accommodates the widest possible range of activities and postures people adopt while sitting – from intense upright focus to relaxed contemplative recline. For organisations, cross-performance design makes Aeron suitable for a wide array of workplace settings. The new Aeron performs better than ever before – so that a new generation of users and organisations can too.
With the introduction of the new Aeron, Herman Miller reinforces the company’s worldwide leadership in workplace innovation and high performance seating. The new Aeron chair is available for both commercial and residential users and is available to order now from All Office. All Office has an extensive distribution network throughout South Africa and the continent.
