Herman Miller’s Setu Chair, Another Overpriced Piece Of Office Furniture?

It ain’t no Embody, but at less than half the price ($650), whose complaining?  Designed as multipurpose office chair – I guess that means it can be used in conference rooms, at a desk or perhaps racing one and other down the halls of some uber trendy startup (as one does with cool furniture) – the Setu is finished in mesh providing the same airy feel as the Aeron, but isn’t built to support one’s body for extended use.  Herman Miller will officially unveil the Setu at NeoCon in Chicago, which starts June 15th.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."

  1. I just test-sat the Setu at an office furniture store. Of the 20 or so chairs I tested, this was, by far, the best for my human frame. I found only one other chair (with 5 additional controls!) that was even close to being as comfortable. What a great design! The lumbar support on the Setu is wonderful.

    Since I have a long torso, few chair arms are useful. If they are adjustable, they must be set at their highest level. In most chairs, my arms hang from my shoulders without relief. I only wish the arms on the Setu were adjustable (or higher above the seat). Then, for me, it would be the perfect chair.
