The Setu family of chairs were created for how we work and live now. Designed in partnership with Herman Miller by Studio 7.5 from Berlin, Germany, Setu sets new standards of simplicity, adaptability, comfort, and dematerialization for multipurpose seating.
Technology has changed how and where we work. Now we work anywhere and everywhere. No matter where we work we want a comfortable chair. Introducing Setu. Its innovative kinematic spine bends and flexes to your every move. There’s nothing to tilt, nothing to tweak. Setu’s finely tuned elastomeric fabric provides superior suspension and conforms to your contours. It’s comfort now.
The Kinematic Spine
Instructions: Sit down.
The first thing you’ll notice once you sit in Setu. Nothing. There’s nothing to tilt, nothing to tweak. It’s mathematics in place of mechanisms. From the moment you sit down, you and the chair move as one. It’s form and function working together in harmony. It’s elegance in the name of performance. Design for how we live and work now.
Only what’s needed. Not a molecule more.
Inspired by nature with its spiraling shape and contours, this unique single support spine was perfected by technology. Every bend, every corner and every line were painstakingly shaped, reshaped and reshaped again so that each molecule falls in the right order, in the right place. All in the name of less.
The details are in the materials.
From the tip of Setu’s polypropylene kinematic spine down to its category-first H-Alloy base, there isn’t a molecule we haven’t mulled. Because, as with every Herman Miller design, our products and materials are one. This honesty in materials has long been the cornerstone of design at Herman Miller, and Setu firmly holds true to this principle.
A good fit for anybody, anywhere.
Setu is designed to fit all shapes and sizes. But, equally important, Setu is designed to fit virtually all spaces and places. Adaptable like no other chair in its category. Setu appeals to your functional needs as well as your design aesthetic. It can be the feature of any room or simply be noticeably unnoticeable. It’s adaptability now. Designed for how we live and work now.
