Customer comments about Setu® Chair Graphite with Lyris(TM) 2 Graphite by Herman Miller®:

I am a tech writer working remotely full time from my home office. This chair is a major improvement in my work life. It is extraordinarily comfortable, requires adjustment only in height, and rolls smoothly between my 3 workstations. It is smaller than most Herman Miller chairs, so it doesn't overpower my space. It is quite understated -- no one would guess that the price is rather steep, except for the person sitting in it! The ergonomic design is without equal. Great lumbar support contour, springy response, and easy on the backs of thighs too. Assembly took approximately 4 seconds, place chair support post into the base unit. Sorry only that I waited so long to purchase it.

Customer comments about Setu® Chair Graphite with Lyris(TM) 2 Alpine by Herman Miller®:

I wanted "simple" and well made; this fits the bill. But its very light and that makes it somewhat unstable. I would only purchase if it were a chair I used on occasion but not frequently.

        Customer comments about Setu® Chair Graphite with Lyris(TM) 2 Graphite by Herman Miller®:

        It looks great and has sophisticated lines all over. It feels great too at the first try. With the use of long hours, however, you can feel tightness around your upper thigh because it presses up that area by the fabric which soars a bit more than ordinary chair where the back rest and the seating meet.
        Over time, it surely presses my thigh and tends to disturb blood circulation, and thus, does not give comfortableness as expected.
        I returned and consider to buy Aeron Chair.

        comfortable, but only without the arms

        Customer comments about Setu® Chair Graphite with Lyris(TM) 2 Graphite by Herman Miller®:

        I'm a furniture designer, and was immediately attracted to the clean lines of this elegant chair. After 8 months of use, I can report that it's very well made. But there are two points I'd like to add to the other reviews:

        1) If you are even moderately tall (as I am, at 6'), the seat does not provide much depth or support. This means your thighs will hang off the front edge a bit. I've adjusted, but it may not be good for everyone.

        2) The arms significantly reduce the amount of back flex, and in doing so, contribute to discomfort. A major selling point of this chair is its "automatic" adjustability (i.e. ergonomic flex), so this is important to note. I bought my chair with arms, but found the chair too rigid to sit in for more than an hour. I noticed that the arms limited its flex, so I took them off. Taking them off is somewhat complicated: you'll need to buy the arm plug kit from Herman Miller, as well as a special star driver tool.

        Now that the arms are removed, I'm much more comfortable and more happy with the chair. Too bad I needed to spend an extra $70 (arms + kit) to find that out!

              Love the texture of the fabric, the color fits pretty well with any space and furniture around the chair, it is very comfortable to write on the computer and light to roll it to the dinning room and review some documents while taking some tea. I don like the top and low borders of the fabric because after a I have been used the chair for almost two months it looks it has wrinkles on it.
