    Our Story

    For 60 years we have been passionate about creating learning spaces that are fun, engaging and awaken incredible potential.

    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 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 education furniture
    with the latest ergonomics, our furniture is functional
    and built to last. When you buy Sebel, 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 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.
