Bill Stumpf & Don Chadwick
When designers Bill Stumpf and Don Chadwick set out to create a chair that was health-positive, cross-performing, inclusively-sized, and environmentally sensitive, they arrived at a design unlike the world had ever seen. Aeron demonstrated a pioneering step in ergonomics and material innovation, and provided a comfortable solution without the standard use of foam, fabric, or leather. It changed people’s perception of what an office chair could be—and in doing so it soon found a place in popular culture.
Remastered by Don Chadwick, 2016 Fast forward to the present, and the same criteria serve as the foundation for a remastered Aeron. Just as iconic films and albums are updated for new mediums, standards, and audiences, Aeron has been remastered based on Herman Miller’s latest research around the science of sitting, advancements in materials, manufacturing, and technology, and today’s world of work. The office of 1994 would be largely unrecognizable today. With all the changes that have occurred, it only made sense that Aeron should also change to better meet the needs of today’s work, workers, and workplaces.
This size/fit reference guide helps you select A-, B-, or C-size chairs when the three sizes are not available for actual test sitting.
Height and weight are key indicators of suitable chair-size choice. Since the B-size chair is designed to fit a broad range of people, Herman Miller recommends it for users who fall in the A/B or B/C category.
This chart applies to New Aeron chairs with the extended-height-range pneumatic height adjustment cylinder.
To determine which chair size is best, find the point of intersection for your height and weight.

Buying new from an Authorized Retailer guarantees you have a full manufacturer backed 12-year warranty. When you purchase an Aeron chair from a reseller or parallel importer, they may offer their own warranty from 0 to 12 years. Warranties vary from seller to seller but none are recognized by the manufacturer and servicing is dependent upon the reseller honouring it.
What can you do about a Herman Miller product you bought from a reseller that wasn’t authorized and now the product needs to be repaired?
Because XTRA can’t guarantee the condition or authenticity of the components used by unauthorized resellers, these products wouldn’t be covered by Herman Miller’s warranty. A fee of $450 will be applied for labour and transportation for services done. Parts will be charged separately.
Buying from an authorized Herman Miller retailer gives you two advantages. First is authenticity. If the product comes from an authorized retailer, you can be certain it’s the real thing. Second is warranty. Herman Miller and its authorized retailers stand behind every Herman Miller product and have the ability to make repairs, if needed.
What do you do if you need to request a repair for your Herman Miller product but it doesn’t have a manufacturing label?
