Ok, were talking about a chair this time around. So what’s so special about Herman Miller’s Aeron line? Well, think of it as the business executive’s ultimate working chair. Consider this: Even Obama uses one, 33 of the top fortune 100 companies swear by the Aeron, and Herman Miller has sold more than 7 million Aeron chairs so far.

Herman Miller launched the first Aeron in 1994, and in many ways, it changed the concept of seating, being the first office chair ever without cushioning and fabrics. And now the iconic Aeron is being reinvented.

jcrop-previewHerman 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 recognizably an Aeron, but features stronger and smarter materials, better adjustment capabilities, intuitive controls, enhanced aeration, and a health-positive, more comfortable sit.

jcrop-previewAeron now offers a completely new experience of sitting—with a reengineered 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 organizations can too.

And for all those armchair eco warriors out there, each Aeron chair includes 39 percent recycled content and is up to 91 percent recyclable.

The new chair will be available in UAE and the Middle East starting from November 15th, 2016
