Commissioned by furniture design giant Herman Miller, and designed by the gifted Studio 7.5 out of Germany, the Setu Chair has an impeccable pedigree. The research, design, and execution of the Setu Chair was shepherded at every step by the best designers and furniture minds in the world. When Herman Miller first contacted Studio 7.5 to do the work, the goal was simple: a work chair that was comfortable, environmentally responsible, stunning to look at, and a perfect fit for the modern office. The designers at Studio 7.5 responded with a chair that met and exceeded every immodest goal: the Setu Chair.
The first thing you notice about the Setu Chair is the artful beauty of its line. Consisting of four graceful curves designed to fit, support and comfort the human frame, the profile of the chair cuts a dramatic and unmistakable silhouette. The front curve, the edge of the seat, is designed to relieve pressure on the thighs. This is one of the persistent problems of the modern workplace: long periods of sitting which create strain, bad circulation, and even bruising on the thighs. The Setu Chair solves that problem, increasing comfort and blood flow, which in turn leads to more energy and a higher level of productivity. That's right, the design of the Setu Chair can actually help you do your job. The second and third curves combine to create a recessed joint at the juncture of the back and seat of the chair. This carved-out U creates a comfort pocket which accommodates the demands of various postures, heights, builds and weights of the user. This curvature also enables the Setu Chair to bend and recline in conjunction with your body, and under your own power.
The chair responds to your pressure (when leaning back or turning) and responds accordingly. Pretty smart. The Herman Miller Setu Chair is adaptable to every possible user, and this comfort pocket is just one of the many reasons why. The fourth curve echoes the first, and creates a softer edge at the top of the chair, where the head and neck are meant to recline. Similar to the front edge of the seat, this curve ensures the all-day comfort of your head and neck, even when leaning and reclining. The elegant arms of the Setu Chair describe an arc as well, this one sharper than the others. The arm rest tilts slightly up, decreasing pressure and discomfort on the forearms (often caused by long periods of typing) and settling the elbow into a comfortable curve. Taken at a glance, these curves are both beautiful, functional, and smart.
The next thing you might take note of in regards to the Herman Miller Setu Chair is the distinctive spine attached to the backing and seat of the chair. Studio 7.5 called this major innovation the Kinematic Spine. The Kinematic Spine is a hyper-responsive, intuitive design element that enables your unlimited and ultra-comfortable movement in the Setu Chair. Designed to look like the human spine, and arranged against the back and seat of the chair as an exoskeleton, it is a transparent, hip and useful piece of furniture design. When you sit in the Setu Chair, it is the Kinematic Spine that allows for your freedom of movement. It is the Kinematic Spine that allows the Setu Chair to be one of the first chairs that requires absolutely no adjustments or tilt settings to conform to your seating needs. The Kinematic Spine makes the chair natural and responsive, comfortable and creative. It also happens to be a wonder of engineering.
