Almost two-thirds of the Aeron chair is made out of recycled materials, and 94 percent of the chair itself is recyclable.
Aeron chairs were popular with web startups during the late 1990s, and have become associated with the dot-com bubble of the time. A 2006 article in New York magazine called the Aeron "the Dot-Com Throne", writing that the chairs "became shorthand for the countless companies that didn't have a clue how to make money on the Internet, but, man, did they have the know-how to set up a cool office."
