The aesthetic appeal of a design is not an objective fact.
Functional (e.g. ergonomic) success can be an objective fact.
No, I'm not going to write those designs off because they're "not infinitely variable." I'm going to write them off because they're painful to use. The Aeron (and much of the Eames stuff, too) proves that it's possible to create beautiful design that's not painful. IMHO, most haute designers should be sent back in time and apprenticed for ten years at the Roycroft.
