Stool Size—Stools only available in Size B.
The Aeron Stool takes an iconic chair to greater heights. The remastered design incorporates more than 20 years of ergonomic research. Enjoy the legendary comfort of Aeron wherever you need to sit and work—even at standing-height desks 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.
Same Ergonomic Excellence
The stool’s silhouette is iconic, but just like the remastered Aeron Chair, the Aeron Stool has been updated to better meet the needs of today’s work and workers. Opt for PostureFit SL back support, which uses adjustable, individual pads to stabilize the sacrum and support the lumbar region of the spine to make sitting less taxing on your back. Feel the difference in the 8Z Pellicle suspension material, which offers eight latitudinal zones of varying tension—tightest at the edges and more forgiving where your body makes contact.
Get into the zones
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 buildup of heat and humidity close to the body. Pellicle allows air, body heat, and water vapor 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.
A stance worth backing
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 stabilize 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 2.5” 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.
