Designed as a conference room chair instead of a traditional task chair, the Setu Chair has become extremely popular for many informal office environments as well as conference rooms. It has also become a favorite for many home office workers who do not spend more than a couple of hours a day at their desks. The Setu’s beautiful design is often cited as its most favorable quality. On the negative side, if you are looking for a hardcore task chair for 6+ hours a day, and/or you are a big person, you will find that the Setu is not the best fit. The back isn’t tall enough to support tall users or long term support. For its utility in conference rooms, temporary spaces, and short duration home office use, the Setu is in our customers’ top 10 list.

If there is any one factor that you can change to make spending eight hours a day in an office easier, it’s your chair. There is no shortage of evidence proving that being stuck in a chair for too long can increase the risk of cardiovascular disease and worsen back pain. In fact, sitting too much is even called worse than smoking. Many people who have office jobs develop problems like numbness, spinal misalignment, joint pain, neck pain, and herniated discs — usually from sitting too long on a poor quality chair without support. While you probably do not want to spend a lot of money on a chair, a high-quality ergonomic chair is an investment in your health, comfort and productivity.
