Aeron Task Chair Review

Herman Miller Aeron Chair

Unique breathable Pellicle suspension dissipates the body heat that builds up while you work, keeping you cool and comfortable, while providing unparralleled support.

Since the Aeron is very similar to the Mirra 2 chair, some of the notable features that distinguishes between these two is the customization. Although, all Herman Miller chairs allows you to customize to allow you to have the best chair that forms to your body, the Aeron has a little bit more options to choose from.

There are different Aeron chair sizes to account as well. This could be confusing, fortunately, you can take a look at this Aeron chair size guide to help you decipher which one is right for you.

Quick summary of differences than the Mirra:

  • The Armrest – The Mirra has more armrest positions where you’ll be able to adjust to your comfort zone.
  • Seat Depth – Unlike the Aeron, the Mirra can adjust the seat depth.
  • Seat Height – Because of the different seat sizes, the seat height varies for the Aeron.
  • Three different back support options – The Aeron has three different back support: Basic Back, Adjustable Lumbar Support, and Adjustable PostureFit SL

Mirra 2 Chair Review

Herman Miller Mirra 2 Chair

Lean and very light task chair that acts like your shadow. It conforms to your body and every movement, providing you the most comfort while working long hours.

Herman Miller Mirra 2 is designed by Studio 7.5 which was inspired by the balance of comfort and personalized ergonomics. The Mirra 2 is lean and light that gives support for the people who work in a constant state of motion. This chair allows you to be agile with your work style, and is ideal when you’re in a collaborative work environment.

Mirra 2 Back Support

Unlike the Aeron, the Mirra 2 has two different back support options, the Burtterfly Suspension and TriFlex Polymer. The former back option costs a little bit more but it essentially conforms to the shape of your back like a suspension membrane, and supports you as you move while allowing airflow to keep you cool.

The Triflex Polymer’s perforated design allows the chair to flex with you and allows maximum breathability and easy cleaning.
