The Sayl Story – Yves Béhar & Herman Miller
Published on May 15, 2012
Miller Sayl Chair, designed by Yves Béhar, is to maximize comfort while minimizing materials. For inspiration, Béhar looked to the suspension bridges of San Francisco. It took Béhar and Herman Miller two and a half years to perfect the chair, which employs a novel “3D Intelligent Suspension Back” instead of a traditional frame. A special new type of urethane is used for the frameless back, which is injection molded with different degrees of tension for the various areas of the back and is held in place by a new Y-Tower suspension tower. However, we emphasize the initiative of Herman Miller and Yves Behar to make the project “the story Sayles. ” A web page which displays visually and interactively throughout the design process of the chair. A perfect project for The Case Method.
