Back in June we gave you a sneak peek at the amazing Sayl chair designed by Yves Behar. Well our showroom floor model has arrived and we love it! Extremely comfortable, the Sayl can be adjusted to fit your body and sitting style with fully adjustable arms, seat height and tilt stop control.
Come by Vastu and give it a spin!
Yves Béhar (1967-Present)
Born to a German mother and Turkish father, this Swiss-born industrial designer studied at the Art Center College of Design in California.
For a relatively young designer, he has had a remarkable career. A graduate of the Art Center College of Design, he started out working with high tech Silicon Valley clients such as Apple and Hewlett Packard, eventually gravitating into the sport, apparel, technology and furniture arenas.
His collaboration with Herman Miller came about through one such conversation. An admirer of Charles and Ray Eames, Béhar decided he wanted to do something for the company himself. “Design is very much at the center of Herman Miller’s culture,” he says. “So one day I just picked up the phone, called them, and said, ‘Let’s work together.’”
Four years later, Herman Miller introduced his two brilliantly innovative lighting products, Leaf and Ardea.

Designed by Yves Béhar and sold by Herman Miller, the Sayl work chair is quickly becoming known for its “performance, ergonomics, quality, and appearance.” Made from 93% recyclable materials and weighing only 37 pounds, the Sayl chair can be customized to fit your aesthetic needs, as well as your physical (with adjustable seat angle and depth, arm height, and lumbar support options available).
We ordered our showroom chair in the Studio White suspension back, the Fog armpads and the Green Apple Crossing fabric seat. Stay tuned to find out when you can stop by and try the revolutionary Sayl chair.
