Inspiration through observation

The typical chair design story goes like this: Start with an idea for a chair and shape it into the world around you. But, in designing Setu, Studio 7.5 in Berlin let the world around us shape the contours and performance of the Setu chair. It’s inspiration through observation.

Together with Studio 7.5, we combined our design expertise and manufacturing excellence and studied, learned, asked questions, and relearned. The way we work and live is different now. And it takes different thinking to support it. That’s how we created Setu.

“Design by its nature is collaborative.”
