    Setu Chair Features

    The Setu Multipurpose Chair is made of finely tuned and expertly crafted materials for one reason: your comfort. The chair's limited adjustability, elastomeric seat, Kinematic Spine and straightforward design make it a good fit for anyone, anywhere. The best part? There are no unneeded gadgets, mechanisms or tilts. Setu is available in two base styles, with optional arms.

    One-Piece Elastomeric Back and Seat

    Designers crafted the gently curving one-piece back and seat out of Lyris 2, an elastomeric material that conforms to the natural shape of your body. The material is meant to be completely ergonomic - it distributes your weight evenly, follows your relaxed posture and provides airy breathability for a healthy back.

    Polypropylene Kinematic Spine

    The Kinematic Spine is Setu's hidden secret - it provides the perfect blend of balance and support, while flexing and bending for your comfort. The Kinematic Spine is made of polypropylene, which is what gives the spine ultimate control and support while allowing for flexibility.

    H-Alloy Aluminum Base

    Every material used in the chair was painstakingly chosen for its form and function, including the H-Alloy base material. The aluminum is durable, resistant to corrosion and eco-friendly. The Setu Chair has two base options: a 4-star swivel base and a 5-star base with casters.

    Pneumatic Height Adjustability (Optional)

    Setus with a 5-star base provide one extra function: the ability to raise and lower your seat. The pneumatic height adjustability is easy to use and provides added personalization to the simple design.

    Ribbon Arms (Optional)

    When choosing your Setu Chair, you have the option of adding ribbon arms. They're ergonomic and stylish, gently curving into the chair's design and adding extra comfort.

    Hardwood or Carpet Casters (Optional)

    The Setu features your choice of casters for hardwood or carpet. Casters also available in translucent option.


    About Studio 7.5

    The Setu Multipurpose Chair was created by a team of four designers in Berlin, Germany, called Studio 7.5. Claudia Plikat, Roland Zwick, Carola Zwick and Burkhard Schmitz were inspired to design something as innovative and eco-friendly as it was simple and lightweight.

    They created dozens of prototypes of the Setu Chair, thinking over every material, curve and contour in the design. The designers were inspired by nature and comfort - "Setu" comes from a yoga pose called Setu Bandhasana, which is meant to stretch and strengthen the back.
