In the last few decades, Don Chadwick has pioneered the use of modern materials, moulding processes and mechanisms leading to cutting-edge products that have raised the standard for their market. A native of Southern California, Don Chadwick received his principal training in design at the University of California, Los Angeles. He then worked for architect Victor Gruen before establishing his own practice in 1964. In 1974, Chadwick designed Chadwick Modular Seating. In collaboration with William Stumpf he designed the Equa 1 flexing-plastic chair (1984). Then in 1994, the landmark Aeron chair catapulted Chadwick to national attention, the Industrial Designers Society of America and Business Week Magazine awarded Design of the Decade to the Aeron chair in 1999. Chadwick has received numerous awards over the past three and a half decades. Chadwick's relationship with Knoll marks a milestone in the career of an inventive designer. "I am gratified to be part of the Knoll legacy, I consider Knoll to be at the highest level of contemporary design, and our collaboration is a notable one for me." with the Chadwick chair, he has proven himself as effective at bringing a product to market as he has been at creating the market itself.Bill Stumpf
The design that fulfilled these criteria met all expectations and shattered some of them. It wasn't upholstered. It wasn't padded. It was dimensioned in three models that looked exactly alike and that had nothing to do with their users' job titles. It didn't look like any other office chair. And its revolutionary concept incorporated more patentable ideas than any previous Herman Miller research program."It was a matter of deliberate design to create a 'new signature shape',"says designer Bill Stumpf. "Competitive ergonomic chairs became look-alikes. Differentiation was a huge part of the Aeron design strategy, and it remains one of, if not the most, critical aspects of Aeron's success."With its highly adjustable features, its breathable and supportive Pellicle fabric suspension technology, and its unique back support options, the Aeron accommodates the sitter like no other office chair on the market.

The Ultimate in sitting
taylor from North Las VEgas, NV– Verified Buyer
This was a work purchase. there will be 3 different people sitting in this chair for 8 hours a day every day. This will continue for like 30 years when someone will finally ask how old is this chair, and nobody will know because its still in perfect working order. That is how durable and well crafted this chair is. also the chair came fully assembled and ready to go, a very nice surprise. In addition I got the 2 chairs within 3 weeks. Twice as fast as promised!
Better than expected

I really like this chair. It is better quality than I was expecting. It's really comfy and helps my back a lot. It's adjustable and I love that you can adjust the height. It took a little time to get here but I am enjoying it now.

We got two of these to use in place of counter stools, since we like to sit a work at the counter. They are comfortable and provide great support.
