This new line of office chairs from Herman Miller is supposedly inspired by the graceful design of suspension bridges. The line is called SAYL, and in keeping with the suspension inspiration the back is absolutely frameless, encouraging a full range of movement. The chairs are created using injection moulded urethane, and boast extensive green credentials. They are made from 21% recycled materials and are 93% recyclable themselves. SAYL is designed to adapt to a person’s shape and movements.
The line was designed by well known designer Yves Béhar, his mandate was to “design a highly affordable chair that would incorporate everything Herman Miller is known for—beautiful design, first- class ergonomics, elegant engineering, and respect for the environment.” Béhar, based in San Francisco , naturally looked towards the Golden Gate Bridge for inspiration.
