Setu Chair

 Studio 7.5
Material innovation gives the Setu chair its unique combination of flex and strength. The Kinematic Spine uses two types of polypropylene to control resistance as you recline and support your weight, without a tilt mechanism. More structural element than textile, the Lyris 2 suspension seat and back conform to your contours and aerate your body as you sit comfortably.

    Instant comfort for anyone, anywhere

    The function and contours of Setu were shaped by the world around us. The designers at Studio 7.5 observed how people are working more collaboratively, in a variety of settings—but spending less time in each spot. With Setu, they sought to create a chair that can support people while they work anywhere and everywhere.

    While people are more mobile than ever, thanks largely to how technology has changed much about the nature of work, it hasn't changed how we all like to work: in comfort. Setu chairs are designed to deliver instant comfort from the moment you sit down.

      Breathable and Pliable

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

    • Flexible and Strong

      Flexible and Strong

      Setu's 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.

    • Less and More

      Less and More

      Setu's dematerialized design uses less material—only 17 pounds—to support people of all sizes, up to 300 pounds.

    • Simple and Sophisticated

      Simple and Sophisticated

      Setu has a height adjustment, and that's it. There's nothing to tinker with, nothing to tweak, nothing to think about.

    "Shave it down to the absolute minimum"

    Setu was created by the four designers of Studio 7.5 in Berlin, Germany: The Yogi, MacGyver, The Style Police, and the Master of Geometry. These are the affectionate nicknames of Claudia Plikat, Roland Zwick, Carola Zwick, and Burkhard Schmitz, who work together like a highly evolved organism—extremely lightweight, innovative, and eco-friendly. Their affectionate nickname for us is "the blueprint of the ideal client"—because of our long-term dedication to research, which they share.

    The Kinematic Spine

    Studio 7.5 built 35 fully functioning prototypes—the first model of the kinematic spine was a chain—before homing in on the final design of this chair. The spine, the heart of the chair, took a long time to develop. Before Setu, the seat and back of all kinematic chairs had to be separated and controlled with a hinge. But once Studio 7.5 had found the perfect material—polypropylene—and perfected the math and retooled the design over and over, they had the one-piece, flexible spine they had envisioned.

    Inspired by nature with its spiraling shape and contours, this unique feature was perfected by technology. Every bend, every corner and every line were painstakingly shaped, reshaped, and reshaped again, to create a balance between support and flexibility that lets Setu adapt to everyone.

    They retooled the design over and over, until they had the flexible spine they envisioned.

    Inherent Environmental Concern

    As to environmental issues, Claudia says, "It's inherent. We don't discuss it any more. It's part of our job to only design products that don't use up too much material or too much energy. We tried to shave it down to the absolute minimum." So the Setu chair weighs only 18 pounds. Less chair means less energy and material required to manufacture it. And it's 93 percent recyclable.

    Polished Aluminum

    For normal cleaning, apply a pre-softened paste wax to polished aluminum components following the manufacturer's instructions. In humid atmospheres near salt water, apply the wax once a month. In other areas, apply wax every three months to maintain the appearance of the aluminum.

    H-Alloy Base

    For normal cleaning, wash surface with a soft cloth soaked in mild detergent and warm water. Rinse thoroughly and dry with a soft cloth. Do not use solvents or abrasive kitchen cleaners.

    Plastic

    For normal cleaning, wash plastic surfaces with a soft cloth soaked in mild detergent and warm water. Rinse thoroughly and dry with a soft cloth. Do not use solvents or abrasive kitchen cleaners.

    Lyris 2 Suspension Material

    For normal cleaning, vacuum material as needed using an upholstery attachment. Vacuuming picks up dust and reduces the need for professional cleaning.
    Do not brush fabric or use a vacuum attachment with a rotary brush. Brushing may permanently damage the nap or change the character of the fabric.

    To spot-clean fabric, immediately soak up the stain with a soft absorbent cloth. Do not dry the stain completely or it may set. The longer a stain is allowed to remain on a fabric, the more difficult it is to remove.

    For water-based stains such as coffee, soft drinks, fruit juices, or milk use a water-based cleaner (specifically made for cleaning fabric) or a solution of mild (alkaline) warm soapy water (not overly soapy) applied with a damp clean cloth or sponge. Work the cleaner into a lather or foam.
    Never use hot water; it will set the stain. Avoid scrubbing.

    For oil-based stains such as lipstick, grease, or salad dressing use a dry cleaning solution applied with a damp clean cloth or sponge. Test the cleaning solution on a small, concealed area first. If there is no spotting, ringing, or damage to the fabric or its dyes, apply the cleaning solution to the soiled area with light, quick strokes. Begin at the outside of the stain and work toward the center, being careful not to over-saturate the fabric. K2r is also a product that can be used. See product label for complete instructions.

    Do not over apply water or any liquid solution to fabric. Excessive wetting of the fabric with any liquid solution may result in permanent damage to the material.

    Do not rub too vigorously or you may damage the nap of the fabric or break fibers.
    Several light applications are better than one heavy application.

    Soak up all remaining solution and then use another clean cloth or sponge dipped in cool water to remove any residue.

    Let fabric dry thoroughly and then vacuum well before using.

    If the stain resists cleaning, call a professional cleaner.

    If large areas are soiled, contact a professional cleaning firm.
