Designers: Studio 7.5
The Setu Stool offers an elevated perspective on comfort and simplicity. An innovative Kinematic Spine bends and flexes as you move, whether you’re working at a counter surface or turning to speak with others. The seat and back are formed of a one-piece suspension fabric that responds to your weight, adapting to you the moment you sit down, no adjustment needed.
The Geometry of Comfort
As with its sibling the Setu office chair, the Setu Stool has only a height adjustment; you merely sit, and the stool reacts to you. Two design innovations make this responsiveness possible. The stool's Kinematic Spine combines strength and flexibility to bend and move automatically with you. The Lyris 2 elastomeric suspension fabric not only conforms to you, but also lets air circulate so your body remains cool.
"It's part of our job to only design products that don't use up too much material or too much energy."Studio 7.5 View Design Story
The plastic in the Setu Stool's Kinematic Spine is the type of polypropylene you find almost everywhere, from toothbrushes to garbage bins. Our designers took this common material and applied advanced thinking to create a form that is strong, lightweight, and durable. Most important, it is also flexible, so you can recline easily, without the need for a traditional tilt mechanism.
Sitting on the Setu Stool imparts the feeling of floating. Its airflow keeps you cool. The material's double interlocking weave construction adds strength and durability for a firm sit and a distinctive sheen. Working in concert with the Kinematic Spine, Lyris 2 distributes your weight evenly and conforms to your contours.
Changing postures frequently is good for your body; the Setu Stool encourages this variety by providing you with a comfortable and elevated seat. It's also a great way to be eye-to-eye with anyone who stops by and stands next to you for a quick meeting.
The Setu Stool has a five-star base for stability and casters to keep you mobile. Its triangular footrest supports your feet and conveniently moves in synch when you adjust the seat height up or down.
Setu Stools are manufactured using 100 percent green electrical energy—half from wind and half from captured landfill off-gassing. And the production produces no air or water emissions.
The stool's durable uncoated H-Alloy aluminum base is naturally anti-corrosive and requires no harmful toxins. Made with 44 percent recycled materials, Setu Stools are up to 93 percent recyclable..
