Originally launched in 1994, the Herman Miller Aeron was revolutionary for its substitution of cushions for elastomeric fabric that eliminated pressure points, greatly increased breathability, and eradicated discomfort. The new Aeron is instead evolutionary. It improves upon the original’s performance thanks to a redesigned, smoother tilt mechanism with an optimized balance point between tilted and upright, PostureFit SL spinal support that now boasts two adjustable pads to cradle the natural curvature of the spine, and 8Z Pellicle fabric that varies in tension throughout eight zones for optimized support. It comes in three frame colors with a variety of customizable options you’ll likely want to add on, including a tilt limiter and height-adjustable arms. And users of the original will be happy to know that adjusting tilt resistance no longer requires endlessly turning the tilt mechanism: just a few twists of the new mechanism’s handle will suffice.
