Herman Miller doesn't set out to design chairs that are deserving of museum collection; instead, they set out to provide every individual with a great place to think, to create, and to share. Their goal is for you to sit well, so you can do more.

Always evolving – every Herman Miller chair simultaneously benefits from and adds to their growing body of knowledge about the design and performance of chairs – leading to groundbreaking results. Learn more about the 8 chairs you need to know!


The Aeron chair is the most recognized and admired task chair in the world, offering revolutionary ergonomic support for the widest range of shapes and sizes. Aeron offers suspension seating with full ergonomic support and an iconic design that compliments any workspace. Adjustable, individual pads support the spine to mimic a healthy standing position and prompt the posture that keeps you strong while you sit.


A chair so intelligent, sitting in it helps you think. The Embody chair offers the most comprehensive and personalized ergonomic support available by distributing your weight evenly while supporting your body’s micro-movements. By reducing seated pressure and encouraging freedom of movement, Embody allows blood and oxygen to flow more freely, which helps keep you focused.


Instant comfort – anywhere. When you sit in Cosm, you just might forget you’re sitting in a chair at all. Its sophisticated ergonomic design sets a new bar for instant, personalized comfort, no matter who sat in the chair before you, how long you’ll be in it, or what you’ll be doing. The revolutionary Auto-Harmonic Tilt puts the person first and responds to them, no matter the posture – for total support.
