Making the best better

Rediscover the revamped Aeron Chair

Meet the next generation of Aeron, made with ocean-bound plastic. Same design. Same comfort. Now more sustainable. With the addition of ocean-bound plastic, Herman Miller aims to divert more than 150 metric tons of plastic from the ecosystem every year. (Based on annual sales forecast.) And we’re offering it in a dramatically dark new color: Onyx, in Ultra Matte.

Ocean-bound plastic

The process

The raw materials are washed, sorted, and pelletized. Then, they're sold to manufacturers like Herman Miller, where they test and re-engineer the plastic. Finally, this plastic is incorporated into a growing number of Herman Miller products and packaging.

Plastic diversion

An estimated 234 metric tons of ocean-bound plastic are diverted from the ocean annually. That's the equivalent of 23 million water bottles.*

Ocean-bound plastic

As a dealer within the Herman Miller network, we're happy to represent an initiative that works to develop the first global network of ocean-bound plastic supply chains through NextWave Plastics. By integrating this transformed plastic into Herman Miller’s products and processes, they are reducing the volume of plastic waste, little by little.

Why it's a problem

Plastic waste tends to build up in coastal cities that don't have the infrastructure to process it. As part of NextWave Plastics, Herman Miller is working to turn this plastic into something brand-new.
