Q: Where can I find the Setu Lounge Chair?
A: Setu Lounge Chair
Q: How do I clean it?
A: H-Alloy Base, Frame, Kinematic Spine, and Arms: For normal cleaning, wash surface with a soft cloth soaked in mild detergent and warm water.Rinse thoroughly and dry with a soft cloth. Do not use solvents or abrasive kitchen cleaners.
Lyris Suspension Material: For normal cleaning, vacuum material as needed using an upholstery attachment. Vacuuming picks up dust and reduces the need for professional cleaning. Do not brush fabric or use a vacuum attachment with a rotary brush. Brushing may permanentlydamage the nap or change the character of the fabric.
To spot-clean fabric, immediately soak up the stain with a soft absorbent cloth. Do not dry the stain completely or it may set. The longer a stain is allowed to remain on a fabric, the more difficult it is to remove. For water-based stains such as coffee, soft drinks, fruit juices, or milk use a water-basedcleaner (specifically made for cleaning fabric) or a solution of mild (alkaline) warm soapy water(not overly soapy) applied with a damp clean cloth or sponge. Work the cleaner into a lather or foam. Never use hot water; it will set the stain. Avoid scrubbing.
For oil-based stains such as lipstick, grease, or salad dressing use a dry cleaning solutionapplied with a damp clean cloth or sponge. Test the cleaning solution on a small, concealedarea first. If there is no spotting, ringing, or damage to the fabric or its dyes, apply the cleaning solution to the soiled area with light, quick strokes. Begin at the outside of the stain andwork toward the center, being careful not to over-saturate the fabric. K2r is also a product thatcan be used. See product label for complete instructions.
Do not over apply water or any liquid solution to fabric. Excessive wetting of the fabric with any liquid solution may result in permanent damage to the material.
Do not rub too vigorously or you may damage the nap of the fabric or break fibers. Several light applications are better than one heavy application. Soak up all remaining solution and then use another clean cloth or sponge dipped in coolwater to remove any residue.
Let fabric dry thoroughly and then vacuum well before using.If the stain resists cleaning, call a professional cleaner.
Is the Setu Chair recyclable?
This is a popular question among Smart Furniture customers, and it goes to the heart of what the Setu Chair, Herman Miller, Smart Furniture, and Studio 7.5 (who designed the chair) are all about; service. Not only does the chair make you comfortable, give you great support, and move easily wherever you need it, it also helps you lessen your impact on the environment. Emphatically, yes, the Setu Chair is recyclable. But it isn't only that; it's also easy to recycle. The materials in the chair can be easily broken down into component parts and recycled without the annoyance of time-consuming recycling preparation. It won't be the first time many of the components of the chair have been through the recycling process, as 44 percent off the chair is itself constructed from pre-used and post-consumer materials.
The Setu Chair is composed of aluminum, plastic and steel, 93 percent of which is easily recyclable. That's a huge percentage, much larger than most furniture chains will ever offer. The Setu us also very light and easy to carry; one more obstacle to good recycling habits removed that other furniture companies rarely match. The breezy seat and back of the chair, somewhat perforated to allow the free passage of air, are emblematic both of the chair's remarkable lightness and of Herman Miller's commitment to the idea of natural elements combining with design to form a beguiling and satisfying product.
Herman Miller is on the cutting edge of green technology, and their green factories and manufacturing facilites, as well as their green products, are the envies of furniture companies all over the world. They designed the Setu Chair to be a responsible product, as responsible as they are. The life of the Setu begins in one of Herman Miller's zero emissions manufacturing facilities, where it is built from the ground up by skilled craftsman and the latest technologies. When a Setu Chair is sold, the lifecycle continues within the recyclable and re-usable packaging in which the chair is sent to vendors. It ends, naturally and without disrupting the natural world in a significant way, with the easy and responsible recycling of the product itself.
You won't find a chair this recyclable, this green-friendly, almost anywhere else. That's just one of the many attributes that make it a true Herman Miller product.
What's all this about no adjustments?
The Setu Chair is a wonder of furniture engineering. The only adjustment the user has to make when sitting in the chair is height. That's it. The Setu's groundbreaking Kinematic Spine and comfort pocket will take it from there. The edges of the seat flex and conform to your shape, as does the elastomeric fiber that composes the seat and back. The Kinematic Spine stretches, bends, leans and reclines with you, reading your body to find your center of gravity and your optimum weight distribution. The Setu is a truly smart chair, intuitive and capable. It was designed in Germany by the innovative and free-spirited design firm Studio 7.5, and their playful yet technologically sound design ethos sets the chair apart from most of it's contemporaries. For Studio 7.5, less is usually more, both in the philosophical and the literal sense. The Setu Chair literally has less material than most fine chairs on the market today. It's breezy and super-light through the seat and back. At the same times, it's also extremely strong and agile, able, with its high-tech elastomeric fiber and the Kinematic Spine, to support the weight, stress, and bending of any body. Less is literally more with the Setu Chair, and that's a wondrous paradox.
How durable is the Setu Chair?
Very durable. While the chair is lightweight, flexible, and thin in the back and seat, it's also incredibly strong. The elastomeric fibers of the fabric and the Kinetic Spine combine to form a flexible but strong whole that can support all types of weight, height, and shapes. Herman Miller is in the business of building beautiful, useful chairs that last a long time, and the Setu Chair is just one more in a long line of excellent office chairs. It's also just the latest to come with an outstanding warranty from the manufacturer.
The Setu is guaranteed for 12 years by Herman Miller. That's a big commitment, but the craftsman at Herman Miller and Studio 7.5, who built the Setu Chair, are confident in their excellent work and in their strong, durable materials. The Setu Chair is composed of aluminum, steel, and plastic, long-lasting tough materials. The warranty is even more impressive when you look at it in terms of value. For instance, how much would you pay to be comfortable, supported, and flexible at work per day? Would you pay a dollar? More than that? If you invest in the Setu Chair, over the 12 years of it's warranty (and at it's current base cost of $499) it will only cost you 11 cents a day to have all that and more in a beautiful, stylish, and modern chair. That's a bargain no matter which way you slice it.
Can I customize the Setu Chair?
Smart Furniture was built on the idea that customizing your furniture, the objects that will grow to define your rooms and the spaces in which you live your life, is not only important, but a right of the consumer. Almost everything we sell at Smart Furniture is customizable through our customization engine. You can choose colors, adjustment, accessories; with things like shelves you can go even deeper than that. Customization is a major part of our business and the cornerstone of our commitment to customer satisfaction and service.
So, while the materials used in the construction of the Setu Chair cannot be altered, it is still customizable to a large extent. For instance, using our customization engine you can change and experiment with the color of the elastomeric fabric which composes the seat and back. This is just one more way to make the chair your own. On it's own, the Setu Chair was built to adjust for height and nothing more; all your other adjustment needs are taken care of by the revolutionary Kinematic Spine and the elastomeric fibers in the fabric of the back and seat. Both accommodate your body at all time, and have no need for adjustment. Less is more when it comes Studio 7.5, who designed the chair.
But even a chair meant to be perfect can have your personal stamp put on it at Smart Furniture. That's Design on Demand.
The Setu Chair is a remarkable piece of engineering and design, and Smart Furniture is very proud to offer it to our customers alongside our legions of other Herman Miller furniture and accessories.
