Herman Miller's Embody® Chair offers unparalleled ergonomic fit and comfort. This task chair epitomizes luxury in its aesthetics, technical sophistication, and ergonomics.
Thoughtful engineering created a chair that allows the body to move naturally into the most healthful seated postures. Its Pixelated Support™ technology creates dynamic seat and back surfaces that automatically conform to movement and evenly distribute weight. Its frameless, narrow back adapts to the curvature of the spine and allows arms and shoulders to move freely. And its new tilt technology stabilizes the pelvis and supports the spine all the time.
Embody features Adjustable Seat Depth, Adjustable Seat Height, options for no Arms or Fully Adjustable Arms, Adjustable BackFit™ and Adjustable Tilt Limiter.
Available in other non-Quick Ship options, see Embody® Chair.

Designer: Jeff Weber
As a kid, Jeff Weber was fascinated by the way things worked. "I was always tinkering — either building things or tearing them apart," he says. Watching his mechanical talents develop, his grandfather suggested that he consider becoming an industrial designer. Once he learned more, "I never really thought about doing anything else," recalls Weber.
Today he uses his considerable talents to improve the human condition by designing products that enhance people's lives — at home and at work. "There should always be a human benefit associated with whatever it is we're designing," he explains. "It's all about the experience, stimulating a person's senses in a positive or beneficial way."
With an emphasis on results, an integral and important aspect in his design process is research. When designing Herman Miller's Embody chair, for example, Weber and the Herman Miller team spent nearly two years talking with experts in various fields of medicine, from specialists in upper-extremity conditions to optometrists and neurologists. It was all in an effort to gain a real understanding of what it takes "to support a body in space in a healthful way and enable motion at the same time," he says. Studio Weber + Associates is based in Minneapolis, Minnesota.View other products by Jeff Weber
