Recently Herman Miller sent PSFK one of their new Setu Chairs to try out. The Setu was designed by Berlin based Studio 7.5 who observed that technology has fundamentally altered the way we work. They noted that work involved much more collaboration and people moving around from space to space within an office. The Setu was designed to be very lightweight but offer stability and comfort. The most noticeable design feature on the chair is the flexible ‘spine’ section near the base of the back. The kinematic spine replaces traditional knobs and handles to adjust the flex in the back. Doing away with complicated mechanisms reduced the weight of the chair and also makes it simple to use.
