The Embody chair and the Aeron chair are both products of world renowned furniture design company, Herman Miller. Both have managed to gain strong followings in cyberspace, in business and other sectors. Both have received several acclamations and recognitions.
These two Herman Miller products are ergonomic and are meant to counteract the effects of sitting for long hours on end. These two products move with the user’s body and perform several functions and provide various benefits that regular office or computer chairs cannot do.
Though the Aeron chair and Embody chair may have certain similarities, they do have their differences. First off, the Aeron chair has reached an iconic status by being placed in the Museum of Modern Art’s permanent collection and by receiving a gold award in the Designs of the Decade category for office furniture from the Industrial Designers Society of America and Business Week, which the Embody chair, although it has received recognitions, hasn’t been able to do. Secondly, technology used in both chairs are different. The Aeron chair has a Pellicle Suspension System which fills the space between the lower end of the spine and the chair in order to properly align the user’s spine. The Embody chair, on the other hand, has the Pixelated Support technology comprised of 56 flexors and 93 plastic pixels that makes the chair similar to the human spine and aids the chair to move with the user’s every movement. Their looks are also different although both are eye catching. The Embody chair, however, has a more urban look and looks more fun since it comes in papaya and black and the user can choose from a variety of shades, textures and colors.
