Ever find yourself in the basement of Lamont Library and realise that you’re sitting on a $700 chair? Well, now you have. The Herman Miller Aeron Chair, designed in 1994 by Bill Stumpf and Don Chadwick, was seen as a reinvention of the ‘office chair’. It combines carefully thought-out ergonomic design (the back of chair uses an interwoven, breathable material of varying tensions so as to best support the back) with sleek and sophisticated simplicity. For a chair that is so healthy to the human spine it blends seamlessly into the working environment, meaning that one only realises its comfort by sitting in it.
