Sedus rethinks sitting – a paradigm shift

It was just a utopian dream only a few years ago, but now it is a reality: Sedus designers and engineers have created the se:motion, a swivel chair that works without conventional mechanics and makes ergonomic and agile work affordable to everyone.

Terms such as work 2.0, co-working, and smart office are increasingly hitting the headlines with stories of changes to traditional office environments. New workplace concepts and ways of working are needed, and these demand a rethink of everything from space design to new product solutions.

se:fit brings movement to the office

Movement is good for the body and inspires the mind. The se:fit stand/sit stool enables dynamic and active sitting – at a worktop, desk and wherever a standing seat opportunity is welcome.

se:fit is both a stool and a seat. It can easily be adjusted in height and carried by its ergonomic handle in one hand. It therefore becomes an easily available seat which promotes healthy movement and crucially, posture change.

Sedus refined with Chromium III

Dogern (District of Waldshut, Germany) – Whether a swivel chair or a desk, every third pedestal ordered by Sedus customers is requested in the “chrome-plated” version. This is not only for aesthetic reasons, but also qualitative, because chrome surfaces are scratch resistant and less sensitive than the alternatives of powder coating, polished aluminium or wood. The technique of using chrome is historic. The previously unknown metallic substance with the formula Chromium III was discovered by chance in 1797 by Louis-Nicolas Vauquelin, but was only made industrially usable on a large scale in the 1920s by the addition of other chemical substances. However, the cost has always been high because the globally widespread process Chromium VI is cheaper and simpler but also extremely toxic and hazardous to health. Chromium VI compounds enter the body via the respiratory tract, can mutate and damage DNA.

Sedus reinvents the swivel chair - two world premieres at Orgatec 2018

Sedus set standards that are valid around the globe:
