Herman Miller Setu Multi Purpose Chair, Alpine

Product information

With a number of awards, including Best Sustainable Design Solution, the Setu chair provides comfort for any situation. The Kinematic Spine bends and flexes as you do, while the elastomeric fabric conforms to your contours to keep you comfortable and supported.

Rather than having adjustment levers, Setu enjoys a buoyant design that allows it to move and conform to your body simply by responding to your weight as you sit.

The minimalist outline is thanks to meticulous design: during creation Setu was shaped and reshaped to streamline the shape and ensure less material is used. From the tip of Setu's polypropylene Kinematic Spine down to the durable alloy base, this chair is finished without using toxic coatings.
