The Celle is Herman Millers least costly post-Aeron task chair. It captures many of the features of the Aeron, the recylability of the Mirra, and offers it at a price more can afford. If you love the Aeron but can't spend that much you won't give up much in the way of comfort or function if you bought the Cell instead.
Lets look at some of the Celle's characteristics.
• The Celle can be had either in its un-upholstered transparent form, or with a thin pad (similar to the Mirra's pad option), if you are an upholstered chair person. In either case the Celle maintains a thin profile. You won't find a pillow thick foam pad here because it is relying on the resilience of its mesh surface to do the job of keeping you comfortable. The mesh surface is an interesting molded matrix, with small stout pillars that support you, connected by a net of connectors that makes the whole surface act as one. It also promotes the circulation of air as in the Mirra and Aeron that came before. This can be exposed on the back and the seat, or be covered with fabric on both or just the seat. The back mesh comes in a range of colors giving the chair a unique look. Dressed in black, and viewed with a squint you could mistake it for an Aeron.
• The Cella has a range of adjustments on a par with the best chairs. You will find a high range of height adjustment , arm height, width, and angle, tilt tension and limit, seat depth, lumbar support position, and a forward tilt position which I've described before and believe is a great asset.
• The Cella has also been designed along cradle to cradle standards, so it has recycled content and is made to breakdown easily into recyclable components. Whether or not you wear your green on you sleeve this is a good thing and the way all manufacturing should be moving.
