Herman Miller History in Fast Forward
In 1923, D.J. De Pree took over the 1905 founded Star Furniture Company, which was until then concentrated on the production of bedroom furniture. With starting aids of his father-in-law, the businessman Herman Miller from West Michigan, he founded the company. The Executive Office Group, designed by Gilbert Rohde in 1941, finally leads the company’s road to success. Since then, Herman Miller stands for modern design classics, ergonomic office furniture, and sustainable production methods.
Four years later, architect and designer George Nelson becomes the company’s first Design Director. Followed by Charles and Ray Eames that designed a variety of office and living furniture for Herman Miller, which went down in history as design classics. With designs such as the Noguchi Table, the Nelson Bubble Lamp, or the Aeron Chair, they layed the foundation for a company that still creates problem-solving designs, both beautiful and functional.

Aeron Chair – Modern Design Classic and Herman Miller Flagship
Designed in 1994 by Don Chadwick and Bill Stump in 1994, the Aeron Chair was ahead of its time: The Aeron Chair was the first office chair that combined comfort and look with ergonomics and quality. This traces back to the key features of the Aeron Chair: The Kinematic tilt, which allows the chair to adapt to natural movements; the 2D armrests, which swivel 17° inwards and outwards for ideal working; and the patented Pellicle membrane of the seat and the backrest. This makes the chair the first office chair in history without sweaty upholstery.
Since the 1990’s, the Aeron Chair is a modern office classic, collector’s item of design lovers and showcase example at Herman Miller. Available in three sizes, he embodies the company’s philosophy, and is as an everyday item that is adaptable to anybody’s unique physique. 23 years after its market launch, the office icon became a remake: the Aeron Remastered is even more ergonomic and more easily adjustable due to the novel PostureFit SL and the advanced 8Z-Pellicle membrane.
