Last year we presented the upgraded version of the Aeron Chair upgraded that is called the Embody Chair by Herman Miller. A few days ago at NeoCon 2009 in Chicago, US which was between 15th and 17th June Herman Miller unveiled its newest office chair called SETU. Herman Miller´s new Setu chair has a kinematic spineâ€“inspired by the human backboneâ€“that supports the sitter´s weight and gently forces the body into proper position.
Designed by Berlin-based Studio 7.5, the Setu line is meant to be a multipurpose chair. Inspired by a modern masterpiece, the chair has a mesh design lending it a cushioned feel. Suitable for desks and conference rooms, the chair is priced at $650. The price might seem high, but then again, its $650 price tag is not the Embody´s $1600. The reason for the price difference is thatâ€”even while it´s comfy and has great designâ€”it is not designed to work for long periods of time. It´s much better and comfortable than a normal multi-purpose chair, however, even while it is supposed to be a multi-purpose chair. â€“ Via â€“ Herman Miller & Fastcompany
