The Aeron Chair has no padding. It is covered in
a unique type of material called 'Pellicle'. This material
distributes the weight of the person evenly over the seat and
back. It flexes to each person's unique shape. Pellicle fits the
contours of the human body.
The material looks slightly transparent. The designers deliberately
chose this material as it acts as a permeable membrane and allows
air and light moisture to pass through, adding to long-term comfort
by preventing body heat and moisture build-up.
The chair has optional armrests that are fully adjustable, catering
for different heights and widths. It also comes with optional
lower back supports (lumbar supports) that adjust for height and
Because of its unique tilting action, for the first time small
people may fully recline and large people can maintain an upright
posture without having to stoop.
