The Aeron chair

The Aeron chair is an office chair produced by Herman Miller, and designed in 1994 by Don Chadwick and Bill Stumpf. Its design has a spot in the Museum of Modern Art's permanent collection.[1]

Almost two-thirds of the Aeron chair is made out of recycled materials, and 94 percent of the chair itself is recyclable.[2]

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."[3]

Name[edit]

The chair was named after the Celtic god Aeron, as well as referring to aeration and aeronautics.[citation needed]
