Wednesday, 20 August 2014 09:03

One of the most renowned brands represented by JAT Holdings, has to be the internationally reputed Herman Miller, recognized as the pinnacle of prestige in seating and office desking.

Herman Miller today, over 100 years from its inception, is an innovative business with a commitment to social responsibility.

Herman Miller’s Aeron chair, which is celebrating 20 years, is a design of Bill Stumpf and Don Chadwick. In celebration of this anniversary JAT’s flagship Herman Miller store at No. 134, Havelock Rd, Colombo 5, is offering very special discounts commemorating this special occasion.

“The Aeron didn't end up in the Museum of Modern Art's permanent collection just because it looks cool, although it does”, said Director Business Development, JAT Holdings, Jeffry Ebert. “Its looks are only the beginning”! Aeron accommodates both the sitter and the environment. It redefines a work chair with its imaginative design, fast-forward ergonomics and a look so distinctive that it's probably the only office chair that people can identify by name. According to Ebert, the Aeron is adaptable to all sizes and shapes, as well as all the motions you go through every day while seated, providing healthy comfort and balanced body support, with its innovative suspension and easy-to-use adjustment controls. Work chair, side chair, and stool, support all kinds of office work, and are possible for virtually every body shape and size. With its pioneered posture fit innovation, a modest but fundamental design addition, PostureFit is part of what makes Aeron so comfortable to sit in, even for hours and hours on end. “PostureFit supports the way your pelvis tilts naturally forward, so that your spine stays aligned and you avoid back pain, thus contributing significantly towards effectiveness and efficiency at work, therefore making the Aeron a ‘Must’ in today’s fast paced Corporate world”, said Ebert.

Last but not least the Aeron is 94% recyclable. Even if it's black, it's green. Known as the green chair, the Aeron is a classic example of design excellence. Green was built into the Aeron chair from the beginning of the design stage. Almost two-thirds of each chair is recycled materials, and almost the entire chair, 94% in fact is recyclable. Certified to Cradle to CradleCM Silver, Aeron is GREENGUARD certified and can contribute to LEED certification.
