Herman Miller’s iconic Aeron chair gets an eco-friendly upgrade

The Herman Miller Aeron is the world’s most iconic task chair, designed in 1994 for a world where people were spending increasing hours in front of their computer screens.

Nearly 20 years later, the Aeron is still Herman Miller’s best-selling chair. And now, each Aeron chair will contain the equivalent of up to 114 plastic water bottles, as the company is using as much as 2.5 pounds of recycled, ocean-bound plastics in the Aeron—diverting the various plastic waste that’s found in close proximity to ocean shores.

Specifically, the company is using these reclaimed plastics to build 100% of two major components of the chair: its nylon back frame, and its tilt covers beneath the seat (a box that houses adjustment mechanisms).

Admittedly, 2.5 pounds of plastic might not sound like all that much. And depending on the color of the chair, there may be as little as half a pound of ocean plastic inside. “The idea is that little things add up,” says Gabe Wing, director of sustainability at Herman Miller. Herman Miller projects these updates to the Aeron line can save 150 tons of plastic from ending up in oceans each year (the equivalent of 15 million plastic water bottles).

“We’re trying to create a market for waste materials . . . demonstrating you can use them, and put them in premium products,” says Wing.
