Product description

The Aeron Stool takes our iconic chair to greater heights, pairing with higher work surfaces, tables, and countertops. While the stool’s iconic form has remained largely unchanged, it’s been remastered to meet the needs of today’s work. The stool offers the same ergonomic excellence as the Aeron Chair, including adjustable PostureFit SL and the comprehensive support of 8Z Pellicle suspension material.

Pellicle, the innovative, elastomeric suspension of the original Aeron, eliminated circulation-restricting pressure points and stretched the boundaries of material design. 8Z Pellicle pushes the material to a whole new zone: eight of them. Across the seat and back, eight latitudinal zones of varying tension – tightest at the edges and more forgiving where the body makes contact – envelop the sitter to deliver increased comfort and ergonomic support.

By doing away with foam and fabric, Aeron solved one of prolonged sitting’s biggest predicaments: the build-up of heat and humidity close to the body. Pellicle allows air, body heat and water vapour to pass through the seat and backrest to help maintain even and comfortable skin temperatures. While many chairs have adopted mesh as a way to deliver some performance, there’s only one Pellicle.

If an active body is at its strongest when standing, chest open and pelvis tilted slightly forward, it makes sense that you would be better off sitting like that too. And that’s exactly where PostureFit SL comes in. Adjustable, individual pads stabilise the sacrum and support the lumbar region of the spine to mimic that healthful standing position.

The Aeron Stool offers unique features and user benefits not typically found in performance work stools. The footrest platform, which, at 6 cm wide, is three times wider than the typical footring, was specifically designed to provide a large, comfortable area to support your feet. This reduces the pressure and resulting discomfort that’s usually created with a smaller footring.

When you adjust the seat height of the Aeron Stool, the footrest moves with the seat so that you don’t have to worry about having to readjust the footrest height as well. Treads along the footrest also ensure that sitting down in and getting up out of the stool feel comfortable and easy.
