Don Chadwick (1936-) is an American designer specializing in office seating. Born in Los Angeles, he became passionate about design after taking a lecture given by the legendary Charles & Ray Eames at UCLA in his student years. He was later a professor at the same university, from 1976 to 1985, having gained experience working with leading architects such as Victor Gruen and George Nelson. Of tireless curiosity and great technical precision, he developed his fame as the "designer of office chairs" par excellence, helping to revolutionize the way Americans conceived the workspace and carrying out in-depth studies on the concept of ergonomics. He is accompanied on this journey by the Herman Miller company, which will produce most of his creations, while his collaboration with the Knoll brand dates back to more recent years. Among his products that have gone down in history, the Aeron chair deserves a mention, designed in 1994 together with Bill Stumpf, which became part of the permanent collection of MoMA even before being put into production.
