The Aeron chair is a product of Herman Miller, designed in 1994
by Don Chadwick and Bill Stumpf. It is an ergonomic chair which
is expensive but many regard as very comfortable. The chair became
a symbol of the rise and fall of the dot-com industry in the 1990s.
However, its breakthrough design has gained it a spot in the New
York Museum of Modern Art's permanent collection.
The chair is not upholstered. Instead, the seat and back are made
of a semi-transparent and flexible metal mesh called a pellicle.
Another noteworty feature is that the Aeron is manufactured in three
different sizes, A, B and C for Small, Medium and Large respectively.
The struggle to find a market for the chair is discussed in Malcolm
Gladwell's book Blink.
