It's a Product of Science

Designers of the Aeron chair conducted anthropometric tests nationwide to figure out the relationship between a person's dimensions and the chair size they prefer. In fact, 224 people across the United States were measured. Research included pressure mapping and thermal testing to figure out what the weight distribution of a person sitting in the Aeron chair.

Herman Miller is already one of the world's most sustainable businesses. From energy-efficient offices to low-emissions factories, the company has made a point to stay eco-friendly. But with some lofty environmental goals set for the future, they're only getting better for the environment.

As for the Aeron chair itself, it's two-thirds recyclable, made of recycled materials, and easy to dismantle and recycle at the end of its lifecycle.
