Herman Miller Celle Review- Features


Comfort is the first thing that people consider. At first look, Herman Miller Celle dont seem to be comfortable as the chair has a cellular backrest.

But in fact, the chair is comfortable as the chair’s back is flexible and soft. Moreover, the ergonomic design of the backrest also makes it more comfortable.

The chair seats are also very comfortable, thanks to the seat cushion. However, the cushion is not very large but still, you can sit comfortably for long hours without having pain in your butts.

The armrest provides support to arms and elbows too. So that you can sit comfortably on this Herman Miller Celle chair.

By choosing different backrest angles, the best comfortable angle can be chosen for sitting on this chair. Overall, in terms of comfort level, its comfort is above average.

Seat design

The seats of the Herman Miller Celle chair are not much ergonomic as the Aeron chair. The waterfall edge design of these Herman Miller Celle chairs is less than Aeron chairs.

The edge from the forward side of the chair is not much too. Even though, the edge design will reduce the pressure to the hips area very much.

Aeron and Mirra 2 chairs have a much more ergonomic curve waterfall edge design. For People who want more ergonomic waterfall edge seats then looking for Aeron and Mirra chair is a great option for them.

The padding surely makes the chair seat very comfortable as the cushion is very soft and dont deflate either. Because of the padding, your butts won’t have a hard feel.

And the pressure will distribute all over the seats. The seats are wider in size so that you can sit comfortably.


Herman Miller Celle has an ergonomic design backrest and has lumbar support too. That promotes ergonomics to the chair, by proving extra support to our back spine.

The design of the backrest of Herman Miller Celle is very different from other Herman miller chairs like Aeron and Mirra. On its back, you will not find a mesh layer or padding.

In the Herman Miller Celle, Cellular suspension back is given which is made of 751 polymer cells. Which makes the backrest very flexible and supportive.

The Cellular suspension back supports all shapes of the human back. The adjustable lumbar support provides support to the back spine.

You can adjust the lumbar support height and depth to get better support. The Cellular suspension back also promotes breathability much more than the Mirra and Aeron chair.

However, the back of the celle chair is less soft than the Aeron chair, and some users may have a hard feel to their back.


Adjustability is an important part of an office chair. It allows users to adjust the chair parts according to their needs.

And the Adjustability of Herman Miller Celle chairs is no less than the adjustability of expensive office chairs like Aeron.

4D adjustable armrests come in the Herman Miller Celle chair, which can adjust by height, depth, forward-backward tilt.

Moreover, the seat height and width are also adjustable which you can do by pressing the level. The seat adjustability makes the sitting experience comfortable.

You can adjust the seat height and depth to remove pain from the hips and toes. The backrest of Herman Miller Celle can tilt back too.

Look and Design

But there are also many users who love its Cellular suspension back because of design patterns. In my opinion, this Herman Miller Celle looks cool and stylish.

Many colors are available in this Herman Miller Celle chair like white, grey, blue, and brown.

In the Aeron chair, the color of the backrest dont change, but in this chair, the back color also changes with the rest chair color.
