Wonderful back support. Cool for sitting for long periods
I'm sure this wonderful chair will outlive me. Great for quilting at a sewing machine
July 23, 2016
I agree with everything that prior reviewers said about this product and wish I'd read the reviews first.

1. The foot rest is fixed so it's only ergonomically correct for 1 person who has 1 specific height. For all humans with other nights, it's ergonomically incorrect.

2. The foot rest is too far in, so your knees are bent inwards instead of being at 45 degrees, which is causing knee pain for me after a few hours.

3. It's unstable and has a tendency to roll to the left exactly as described in prior review.

4. The ergonomics are horrific. The way that the seat bends and twists instead of being properly supported is causing severe neck and back pain for me.

Luckily, Herman Miller has been fantastic to work with and they are taking this back and giving me a refund. I very much appreciate their excellent customer service.

Great quality and design, but lack of customization.
I love the design, the quality of the materials and it does look like a reliable and durable chair.
Everything seems very comfortable if you try it out for a few minutes. The height is perfect and easy to adjust. It really goes up the highest I've seen in stools.
The position of the step to rest the feet becomes very uncomfortable after a half an hour of seating, so you would need some small cushion or stool in front of your feet to rest the feet and change position. I wish I could extend or custom position the length and height of this part.
Other than that the chair is wonderful.

Beautiful, comfortable, but have issues with metal finish and casters
The chair has style and comfort but that is offset by the metal finish and auto-braking casters. Bead-blasted metal finish picks up dirt and is difficult to clean. Caster legs and foot rest immediately gather dirt from feet and surroundings. You can't clean with a cloth without leaving fibers. You shouldn't have to brush-clean and pat dry a piece of office furniture. I actually bought it as a possible bar stool but the auto-braking casters are not user-friendly. Casters don't move too well without weight on them but immediately release when you start to sit. Ideally the chair should have been provided with an option for a softer wheel so it doesn't roll as easily when you're hoisting yourself into it. I'll be swapping them out for a lower-durometer version. The style and comfort are really nice but further explanation of the type of finish would have helped me make a better choice for that option. Can't do much about the casters since there was only one choice.

Great, but 'drifts'
Great looking and very comfortable chair. Sadly, it's made so well, that when you're just sitting still, the chair slowly 'drifts' (rotates) on it's own so you're no longer facing the right direction. It means that the chair is so sensitive that you must always have your hand or arm on the desk to keep from rotating. Sort of annoying. Seems like there needs to be a tiny bit more resistance in the turning mechanism.

seat height range

1. What are the high and low seat heights?
2. Can the seat height be locked in? Or does it float based on your weight?
A shopper on Jul 26, 2014
Best Answer: The Setu Stool seat height ranges 7 7/8 inches from 26 3/8" (lowest height) to 34 1/4" (highest height). The pneumatic height adjustment allows you to lock or set your seat height anywhere within the 7 7/8" range. Once you have the height adjusted, the seat will stay at that height.

Foot ring

Please describe how the foot ring is adjusted to support the unique size of various users? Does the foot ring go up and down along with the pneumatic height adjustment?
A shopper on Jul 13, 2015
Best Answer: The Setu Stool footrest supports your feet and conveniently moves in sync when you adjust the seat height up or down. The footrest and seat height move together; not independently.

How far apart are the seat and the foot rest?
A shopper on Sep 1, 2015
Best Answer: The H-Alloy footrest is 17.375"-inches from the top of the seat to the top of the footrest. The footrest is stationary and travels with the cylinder.
