Setu

Designed by Studio 7.5

The function and contours of Setu were shaped by the world around us. The designers of Studio 7.5 observed the ways technology has changed how we work, where we work, and how we move throughout the day. We’re working more collaboratively, in a variety of settings—but spending less time in each spot. We expect to be able to work anywhere and everywhere, and we need furniture that can do the same.

 

While technology has changed much about the nature of work, it hasn’t changed how we all like to work: in comfort. The Setu family includes multipurpose chairs, stools, lounge chairs, and ottomans, designed to deliver instant comfort from the moment you sit down. A complementary suite of tables supports collaboration in three distinct working postures.

 

Performance

Material innovation gives Setu Chairs their unique combination of flex and strength. The Kinematic Spine™ uses two types of polypropylene to control resistance as you recline and to support your weight, without a tilt mechanism. It bends and flexes with every movement, responding to the natural ways your body moves.

 

More structural element than textile, the ƒnely tuned Lyris 2™ elastomeric material creates Setu’s one-piece seat and back. Lyris 2 works with Setu’s Kinematic Spine to distribute your weight evenly and conform to your contours. The open weave also aerates your body to keep you comfortable. On upholstered Setu Chairs, the C-Layer suspension works with a variety of textiles, adding a degree of structural support to the fabric.

 

Design

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 the right place to deliver the desired functionality. The result is an environmentally sensitive design that uses less material—only 17 pounds for the multipurpose chair—to support people of all sizes, up to 300 pounds (136 kg). A range of upholstery and material options means you can outƒt Setu to serve as a focal point or to blend into any space where you work or live.
