Bill Stumpf and Don Chadwick, two award-winning industrial designers, created the AeronÂ® Chair (1994), earning themselves a place in what amounts to the designers’ hall of fameâ€”the design collection of New York’s MoMA. The Aeron is the apotheosis of ergonomic seating, conceived to conform not only to different human shapes and weights but also to movement. The breakthrough KinematÂ® tilt enables the Aeron to smoothly move with the sitter from a forward tilt (when you reach for the phone) to a backward recline (while you contemplate what to say). The PellicleÂ® web upholstery is yet another innovation both in concept and comfort. It evenly distributes weight over the seat and back and permits air circulation. As for durability, it will look like new long after you retire. Design doesn’t get more civilized. The Aeron is made from 66% recycled materials.
