The Sayla by Herman Miller x Yves Béhar

After finally picking up my first Herman Miller Aeron chair, I saw this post about their new collaboration with Yves Béhar for the new "Sayla" chair.  Not only is it well designed, but for $300 its a much more affordable Herman Miller chair.  I wouldn't mind outfitting the upcoming GPPR office with these new chairs. :)
Created collaboratively between American manufacturing company Herman Miller and industrial designer and Fuseproject founder Yves Béhar, you’re looking at the “Sayl” chair. Over 2.5 years in the making, the chair’s design is influenced by the suspension bridges of San Francisco, where the chair was created. For maximum comfort, various degrees of tension are infused into the injection-molded back, providing sacral, lumbar and spine support. The chair’s elegant form also works to adapt to the user’s movement, particularly given the structure’s integrated 3-dimensional intelligence. Now available in both side and work chair forms in various colors, the chairs are importantly made from 93% recyclable material.
