Ocean-bound Plastic Products

As a founding member of NextWave Plastics, Herman Miller is working to create a global network of ocean-bound plastic supply chains. The goal? Establish these recycled pieces as a commodity and reduce the volume of plastic waste, little by little.

More than 25 years ago, Aeron transformed the way we think about chairs. But design can't stand still if the problems we're solving change. 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.
