Even though I spent considerable time walking around doing stylings, taking pictures or sketching, I spend the majority of my working day at my desk in front of my computer. I do a lot of exercise and keep moving throughout the day, but the most important thing for a healthy back is a good chair. I’ve been looking for an office chair for a while now, and I finally got to try out the new Aeron chair by Herman Miller in Mineral,and I can honestly say that it’s the most comfortable office chair I have used!
The Aeron chair was originally designed by Bill Stumpf and Don Chadwick in 1994. The designers combined their deep knowledge of ergonomics and technology to create a unique task chair. Since then, the iconic form of Aeron has remained largely unchanged, but Don Chadwick (one of the original designers) incorporated 20 years of research on the science of sitting, materials, manufacturing and technology to improve the design.
It’s difficult to find a chair that is this comfortable, while at the same time looks nice in the office. The Aeron chair is both. It’s great to sit on because it supports the back really well, keeping the body straight but relaxed. I also really enjoy the modern look of the chair in the new Mineral color. The light tone of the chair, the combination of different textures and materials, and polished finishings look great, and shows the attention that went into every detail.
Next to the Mineral version (the one you see in my office), the chair is also available in Graphite and Carbon. You can have a look on the Herman Miller website to read more about the Aeron chair, its features and how it was designed.
