We all know Herman Miller’s Aeron chair, designed by Bill Stumpf and Don Chadwick; it has become an icon. It was the first chair to lose the upholstery. It is part of the Museum of Modern Art permanent collection. It can often be sighted in movies. But what makes it such a pioneer and still keeps it relevant today? The unique PostureFit™ design.
The human spine has four major regions: the sacrum, lumbar, thoracic and cervical. As you can see in the diagram, the spine is best stabilized at the sacrum and thoracic. Herman Miller took this information, and instead of targeting the lumbar and placing a gap at the sacrum like most chairs on the market, they focused the PostureFit™ system on the stable base of the spine: the sacrum.
