Making the best better for Earth
Same design. Same comfort. Now more sustainable. Meet the Ocean-Bound Plastic Aeron Chair from Herman Miller and OfficeWorks.
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.
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.
An estimated 234 metric tons of ocean-bound plastic are diverted from the ocean annually. That's the equivalent of 23 million water bottles.*

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.
Be a part of the change.
