Transforming Ocean Plastic

Herman Miller Aeron Chair Onyx Ultra Matte

In a step towards its pledge to use 50% recycled materials in all of its products by 2030, Herman Miller has announced that its Aeron Chair range will now contain up to 1.13kg of recycled ocean-bound plastic waste per chair. By collecting waste before it reaches the ocean, this change is estimated to prevent over 150 tons of ocean plastic each year; equivalent to 15 million single-use water bottles. This is part of a larger initiative which each year will see the brand prevent up to 234 metric tons of plastic from reaching the ocean through changes to its products and packaging.

To celebrate this update, the Aeron Chair is now available in a fourth colour way; Onyx Ultra Matte. This striking black edition contains the highest proportion of recycled material, and adds a modern touch to the iconic Aeron design.
