For our latest competition, we’re offering readers the chance to win one of 16 Aeron chairs from Herman Miller valued at $1850 each.

This competition closes on 14 July 2020.

The competition challenges entrants to consider how a Herman Miller Aeron chair would improve ergonomics in their home office.

You could be currently using an office chair you found on the side of the road or making do during the coronavirus lockdown with an overturned milk crate or one of your dining chairs that were not designed for eight-hours straight sitting.

Or you could just need to upgrade to an office chair that has been designed to incorporate more than two decades of Herman Miller’s research around the science of sitting.

Bill Stumpf and Don Chadwick.

The competition is inspired by Herman Miller designers Bill Stumpf and Don Chadwick, who set out to design the Aeron chair in 1994 as a health-positive, cross-performing, inclusively sized and environmentally sensitive product.

In 2016, Chadwick remastered the Aeron chair to incorporate advancements in materials, manufacturing and technology, and today’s world of work.

Herman Miller will be sponsoring the IDEA 2020 Workplace Under 1000sqm category. To celebrate, we’ve teamed up with the US furniture company to give away 16 Aeron chairs, each valued at $1850 for a total of $30,000 in prizes.

To win, entrants must submit a short 50-word description answering the questions: How could a Herman Miller Aeron chair improve ergonomics in your home office?

It could be humorous or heart-felt, honest or imploring.

16 readers will win an Aeron chair, each valued at $1850.

Competition closes 14 July 2020.

16 winners will be selected by the Australian Design Review editorial team with the best answers published in a series of articles online. Terms and conditions apply.

Herman Miller was founded in Zeeland, Michigan, in 1905. Over the decades, it has worked with numerous architects and designers, and is a recognised innovator in contemporary interior furnishings, solutions for healthcare environments and related technologies and services.
