About Sebel KI
Since producing our first chair in 1951, Sebel KI has grown to be one of the largest and most diverse furniture manufacturers in the Southern Hemisphere. The continued success of Sebel KI is no accident; it is built upon an unwavering commitment to three core pillars – form, function and quality.

Founded by Harry Sebel in 1951, the Sebel story began with the production of Mobo toys and a new furniture range based around the innovative Stak-a-Bye chair.
In the late 1960s the decision was made to drop the toy side of the business and concentrate solely on the furniture range.
Over its 60-year history, Sebel KI has maintained a genuine manufacturing culture, introducing many innovations. From being the first to replace wooden chairs at schools with Polypropylene, to classic ergonomic designs which many decades later are still as popular as ever.
Focused on making purpose built furniture with the latest ergonomics, our furniture is functional and built to last. When you buy Sebel KI, you are investing in your customers, students and staff, ensuring they will benefit through features that have been designed and refined over many decades.
In 2011, Sebel KI became part of Krueger International (KI), the leading furniture supplier in the USA for education, healthcare, corporate and government markets. This partnership combines 130 years of delivering innovative and responsive furniture for educational spaces.
