If you’ve ever done any research on ergonomic office chairs, the chances are, the company Herman Miller has popped up. And what is the most famous chair in the Herman Miller family? The Aeron Chair.
The Aeron chair has created a new standard by which to judge prestige office chair design and comfort.
There are so many reasons why this particular chair is so damn good. As an owner of an Aeron Chair, here are my top 5 reasons why you might just want to consider the Aeron for you next office chair.
1. PostureFit SL Back
To me there is nothing more important than the lumbar support in an office chair. Too firm, and you’ll be walking with your hands on your back at the end of the day. Too soft? You’ll probably have a hard time getting up due to pain just the same.
And that is precisely why the PostureFit SL lumbar on the Aeron Chair is so good. Two adjustable pads at the back provide full, targeted support exactly where you want it, with just the right firmness. You get adjustable support from the base of the spine to your mid back, and this gives your pelvis a forward tilt so you don’t slouch. Very few chairs have such a comfortable, adjustable lumbar in my opinion.
2. Advanced Meshwith Varying Tension Zones
The type of mesh in the Aeron is no ordinary material- it’s downright space age.
There’s no foam and fabric on this chair and no build-up of heat and humidity. Pellicle allows heat and damp to pass through the seat and you’re able to have consistent and comfortable skin temperatures.
Even more impressive, the mesh on the seat and backrest feature different tension zones, instead of a one zone fits all that you’ll find on most office chairs. The 8 zones is why at times I’m not even aware that I’m sitting in a chair- it’s that adaptive and comfortable.
3. Forward Tilt Option
This is the game changer for me- the Aeron chair is actually able to tilt around 5 degrees forward.
By inclining forward, stress is reduced on the spine and shoulders as you reach forward on your desk. It also alleviates pressure on the muscles in your back.
Very few chairs support forward tilting, and this alone makes the Aeron a worthy buy.
4. Three Different Sizes – There is One for You
Nobody can say that the Aeron isn’t efficiently designed for performance. These chairs aren’t one-size-fits-all. The Aeron chair come in sizes suited to the person’s height and weight. The Size A chairs suits small, people while Size B is for the average adult.
If you’re large and tall, there is a chair in the Aeron range that has been made with your body size in mind. Size C is for large, tall people.

5. Other Noteworthy Features
This Aeron Chair has so many other good things going for it. For lazy people like me, the Aeron chair comes fully assembled. The armrests are extremely well padded and made of vinyl and high-density foam for longevity. They also angle inwards and out. The graphite frame and chassis finish, complete with 2.5″ standard carpet casters, ensures robust stability.
In terms of warranty, Herman Miller gives this chair a 12 year warranty which shows how much confidence they have in this ergonomic chair of theirs.
Herman Miller is a global company, but this exceptional Aeron chair is made right in the USA. The company has a splendid reputation which started way back in 1905 and which is as strong as ever in 2019.
What you spend your money on today is important for how your tomorrow’s pan out. Investing in this awesome chair is investing in your health not just for tomorrow but far into the future.
