Sedus: German design furniture solutions
Suppliers of high quality german design furniture for both offices and public facing workplaces, Sedus have a long history of developing sector-leading products. As with many other industries, the ‘made in Germany’ stamp is a hallmark of quality and dependability and in this case and Sedus have earned an outstanding reputation for their furniture solutions.
Sedus originates from the Rhine Valley in Germany. Founded in 1871 under the name ‘Stoll and Klock’ the company has over 140 years of experience in developing and manufacturing in their field. After honing their craft many decades, Sedus has evolved its own identity and technology, helping to set them apart from other furniture manufacturers.
The company has a history of developing and offering new solutions for their customers, driving the sector forward. In 1925 Sedus introduced the first spring mounted swivel chair in Europe, bringing improved comfort and flexibility to office furniture, designed to suit the changing dynamic of work places and this has since been the pattern of Sedus’ strategy. The business also established its own centre of research and development in 1971 which featured the largest and most hi-tech test laboratory in the furniture design industry, further cementing Sedus’ credentials as industry leaders with a forward thinking approach.
Sedus breaks down the areas where we spend most of our time into three key categories. The first is the home, the second is the workplace, the third is where we spend our leisure time. The company sees its aim as recreating the stimulation provided by leisure environments to enthuse and invigorate office based teams, helping to improve performance. Along side this ambition, the company also aims to improve the posture of those who use their products, noting that improved posture in workers is a reflection of the mental posture of the designer.
