We have a guide to help you through the process the of selecting the proper headrest, but before you go there, here are 4 steps you might find helpful.
  1. Chair Model: You will need to determine the model (either classic or remastered) and the Aeron Chair frame color (Graphite, Carbon or Mineral). It’s easy, our guide will help. But if you prefer just send photos of your chair to info@atlasheadrest.com., we will identify it for you.
  2. Headrest Type: You will need to decide which type of head support you would like, either a cushion type in Fabric or Synthetic leather, or the Suspension type, which will match the fabric on your Aeron. Our guide has the attributes of each type of head support to help you decide.
  3. Aeron Model Colors: The Classic Aeron was introduced in 1994 and is still produced today. The remastered Aeron was introduced in 2016. The chair frame color of about 90% of Aerons, both Classic and Remastered are Graphite in color, which is very dark, nearly black. Remastered chair frame colors also include Carbon (medium grey) and Mineral (light grey-nearly white).
  4. Aeron Fabrics: In most cases, the Classic fabric color is very dark, nearly black with a wide (about 3/8 inch wide) vertical stripe pattern. If your Classic does not look like this, you have a special Aeron and we recommend that you send an image to us for identification.
The remastered fabric vertical patterns are narrow and evenly spaced. Atlas Headrest - Aeron Chair Identifier

We sell headrests designed for the Aeron. We do not sell the chair.
There are three sizes of Aerons, an A, B or C size. The C size has the tallest back. The easiest way to determine if it will fit you is to sit in your chair and have someone measure from the top of the chair to the top vertebrae (called Atlas) where your spine meets the base of the skull. If it measures 11 inches or less it will fit you. If it is more than 11 inches, you will need a larger size Aeron. If you're sitting in the right size chair our headrest covers 95% of the population.
There are size identification bumps located on the top center of the chair. If you reach under the top center part of the frame you can feel the bumps. A size has one bump, B size has two and the C size has three.
The profile of the headrest is designed to fit the curve of the back of the neck. Adjust the headrest vertically until it fits into the curve. Tighten the knob enough to hold that position when you are reclined. Do not over tighten, you will want to change the height by sliding it up or down without loosening and retightening the knob. Then tighten the knob on the horizontal slide enough to hold its position when reclining. Do not over tighten, you will want to change positions without loosening and retightening the knob. We recommend changing work positions frequently, including repositioning of the headrest.
Herman Miller has made a number of limited finish options. If you send us an image we can identify it and make a headrest recommendation. info@atlasheadrest.com
The cushion headrest reaches up 9" (23cm) above the top of the chair to make proper contact with your Atlas Vertebrae. The suspension headrest is a bit larger and will reach up to 11" (28cm) above the top of the chair to make proper contact with your Atlas Vertebrae.
