Herman Miller Setu Chair
designed by Studio 7.5
At A Glance:
Setu is a product of the German design firm Studio 7.5, and it resembles an updated homage to the Eames Aluminum Group Chairs that helped make Herman Miller a household name. Light as a feather and inexpensive, this is a chair than can be used in both the home and the office - it'll make you comfy in both places.
What's To Like:
The Setu Chair is extremely light on its feet, making it portable and effective in office settings where they're used by more than one person (think breakroom, boardroom). The Setu is also known for being a chair where you never have to make an adjustment. The injected plastic moves and bends with your body, and you stay comfortable and supported with a minimum of engineering fuss.
What's Not to Like:
The "no adjustments" premise is great, unless you really value customization and want a more 'task'-oriented chair. If you're looking for lots of personalization features, then Setu is probably not for you. The porous nature of the chair and it's lightness can also be a drawback for some folks.
The Bottom Line:
This is an affordable, effective option for office seating, and the light weight nature makes it especially good for collaborative settings.
