Nice overview in WIRED. I've heard great things about Herman Miller but not sure I could justify $780.

@rrhoover have you sat in one ? If yes, have you used one all day? These chairs are akin to softly but with subtle firmness being slowly cradled in front of your desk by the Greek gods Aengus and Eutchia !

@rrhoover agree w/ @hgottfried until you've sat in one for 8+ hrs and then used something else you cant see the value. It's worth all $780+.

@rrhoover the chair is magical. I'm lucky enough to have one under my *ss all day @ work. I would not exchange it for anything.

@rrhoover I bought a used one a few years ago from a office that was going out of business. I've never sat in a chair like this before. I will happily spend the money to get a new one. If you sit in a chair all day, your body will thank you if you sit in this chair. You have to try one out, it's simply wonderful!

@rrhoover I've had one for a decade and there's not a blemish on it. Considering the Bajillion hours I've spent comfortably working from it $780 is the deal of a century. Also, I think I paid about that much for it back then. So the price has barely budged. :)

It's weird to watch this while sitting in the "old" Aeron chair.

When you consider promotional videos for apps and phones, there's always a kind of novelty expressed through sleekness, speed, or invention. How do you make a mundane object like a chair (remember this?) as interesting as one of these high tech experiences or devices? Herman Miller seems to be trying that with the new Aeron chair: https://youtu.be/fycTr9Bc6Zs

@chrismessina speaking of chairs, there's also this about tables.

Design isn't just how it looks, but how it works. The Aeron, together with the Eames Lounge Chair and the Barcelona Chair are not only great designs, but Art.
