With Less Materials, How Do We Create Something That’s Truly Innovative?
The Sayl Chair for Herman Miller looks to be another masterwork of design from Yves Béhar. PSFK speaks with him about how the idea for the project was developed.
Last week, PSFK attended the NY launch event for a new line of Herman Miller chairs designed by Yves Béhar of fuseproject. The Sayl chair line is the result of an intense 2 year collaboration to develop a refined seating solution for an affordable price point. Yves Béhar spoke with PSFK and gave us some insight into how the project required a combination of both fresh thinking about design and production.
How did this project with Herman Miller begin?
It began in 2002 following the Leaf Light and once that project was done we were looking for something significant, something informed to work on.
