What’s the Little Printer about? Herman Miller Aeron chair
Price: $543.15
Available from: Sit4Life
According to the company, the Herman Miller Aeron chair is “the most well-known ergonomic office chair ever made” and “the first to replace upholstery with the breathable, form-fitting Pellicle suspension that adapts to virtually everybody and keeps you cool and focused”. You can also share your printer’s details with friends and receive messages from them – both pictures and personal notes. So, if you know someone who’s sick of stabbing themselves every time they sit down, this little beauty would come in very handy. Each tile has its own individual colour, just ever-so-slightly different from those surrounding it. There’s no price attached to these, which suggests they don’t come cheap. One of many sought after designs from the Huddle Formation Creative Studio. 09. A modern day classic, guaranteed to keep any designer comfortable.
