Setu Multipurpose Chair

Herman Miller: Design Studio 7.5

Product Information

Multipurpose Chair.

Instant comfort for anyone, anywhere.

Designed in response to change. We’re working more collaboratively, in a variety of settings – but spending less time in each spot. We expect to work anywhere and everywhere, and we need furniture that can do the same.

Designed for instant comfort. While technology has changed where we sit and when we sit, it shouldn’t change how we all like to work: in comfort. Setu chairs are designed to deliver instant comfort from the moment you sit down.

Made with a Kinematic Spine. Material innovation gives Setu chairs their unique combination of flex and strength. The Kinematic Spine uses two types of polypropylene to control resistance and support your weight as you recline. It bends and flexes with every movement, responding to the natural ways your body moves.

More of a structural element than a textile, the finely tuned Lyris 2 elastomeric material is used to create Setu’s one-piece seat and back. The breathable, pliable woven suspension adapts to your sitting bones, providing contouring comfort as well as aeration.

Every molecule counts. Setu is Studio 7.5’s solution for today’s more collaborative, less formal workspaces. From the graceful curve of its ribbon arms to the durable, uncoated H-Alloy base, every part of the Setu Chair was painstakingly shaped and reshaped to ensure that each molecule falls into exactly the right place to deliver all the desired functionality.

Less and more. The result is a dematerialised design that uses less material – just 7.7 kg for the multipurpose chair – to support people of all sizes, up to 136 kg. A range of upholstery and material options means you can customise Setu to serve as a focal point or to blend into any space where you work or live.

Inspiration through observation. The typical chair design story goes like this: start with an idea for a chair and shape it to the world around you. But when it came to designing Setu, Studio 7.5 in Berlin let the world around us shape the contours and performance of the chair. It is inspiration through observation.

Together with Studio 7.5, Herman Miller combined their design expertise and manufacturing excellence and studied, learned, asked questions and relearned. The way that we work and live is different now. And it takes different thinking to support it. That’s how Setu was created.

Designer: Studio 7.5

Burkhard Schmitz and Carola Zwick started their studio as a team of six in Berlin in 1992. The group was looking for the freedom to work on projects that interested them, and for the freedom to do so without bosses or titles.

This is the way they’ve operated ever since. “Everybody does everything”, says Schmitz, speaking for the group that now includes Carola’s brother, Roland Zwick, and a small team of seven. “That’s how we cultivate ideas and maintain our openness and curiosity”.

The group’s name, Studio 7.5, comes from an early idea to rent a 7.5-ton truck, put a model shop in it and drive from one project site to another. Obviously, freedom of movement is important for these designers. They move freely – and smartly – when designing products for their clients.
