23 Sep Setu Chair
Back in April, when Herman Miller asked me to photograph their new chair, I was thrilled to say the least. They have been at the cutting edge of furniture design since the early twenties and when they unveil a new product the design world is always abuzz. Enter Setu. The new chair, designed by Studio 7.5 of Berlin is lightweight, with many ecological concerns designed into the manufacturing process and is quite pleasing on the eyes. While many can’t help but compare Setu to the Aluminum Group designed by Eames in the 50’s, the way that the new chair embraces contemporary materials and it’s minimal design set it apart. I’ve yet to see a piece of furniture that accomplishes so much using so little material… chairs that are comfortable and supportive, while weighing less than my laptop bag. If only my bag were so easy on my back!
