Celebrating the 150th anniversary of Sedus Stoll With the motto "Sedus since 1871", Sedus Stoll AG is celebrating its 150th birthday. The associated image of the tree is a symbol of the essence and uniqueness of the company: consistent, close to nature, natural and caring. Sedus has always pursued its very own strategy without much hype, and conquered its firm place in the office world with passion, commitment and its inventive spirit.

With an attitude, a vision, a doer mentality and courage, Albert Stoll I laid the foundations in 1871 for what Sedus is today. 150 years of company history – that's 150 years of great ideas, accompanied by groundbreaking innovations, full of excellent products and solutions. The foundation for the family business was laid by Albert Stoll I, who put his idea of a chair into practice. He passed on his visions and his inventive spirit – his son Albert Stoll II has continued and expanded what had already started out so promisingly. What would the office be without the invention of the "Federdreh", almost 100 years ago? As the company continued to grow, the founder's grandson Christof and his wife Emma Stoll have had a significant impact on the company since the 1950s.
They were the driving force behind the company canteen with whole foods, the profit participation for employees and the Stoll VITA Foundation, which, together with the Karl Bröcker Foundation, holds over 90% of the company shares. Both foundations ensure entrepreneurial independence and are dedicated to charitable causes, such as public health, scientific research, protection of the environment and nature and the support of young people and children in need. By merging with Gesika (now Sedus Systems GmbH), Sedus became a full-range supplier and has since been providing modern, comprehensive furnishings worldwide. Driven by the pioneering spirit, Sedus continues to set new standards.
