Industrial Designers Society of America recognition adds to chair’s growing list of accolades

Herman Miller, Inc., along with Yves Behar and fuse Project, has been rewarded for challenging conventional work seating design by the 2011 International Design Excellence Awards (IDEA®). Sponsored by the Industrial Designers Society of America (IDSA) and publicly announced on June 30, 2011, the program’s jury recognized the SAYL® family of seating with a Silver IDEA award in the category of “Office & Productivity.”  The ergonomic, high performance, frameless seating solution is the first chair design with a 3-D intelligent suspension back that adapts to a person's shape and movements while simultaneously providing proper support.

“By combining Yves Béhar’s vision and our diligent research and engineering, we achieved a revolutionary seating solution that sets new standards,” said Peggy Kelly, Herman Miller’s Director of North American Seating. “Receipt of this award encourages us to continue to raise the bar when it comes to providing Herman Miller customers with forward-thinking designs that provide the comfort, support, and quality they have come to expect from us.”

A sustainable chair with a uniquely elegant design, at a surprisingly accessible price, the SAYL Chair has received multiple earlier awards including the 2011 Treehugger,com “Best of Green Readers’ Choice” award in the Design and Architecture category, and 2010 Product Design of the Year in the International Design Awards (IDA).

The SAYL Chair emphasizes an Eco-Dematerialized™ approach, using sustainable materials in inventive ways and minimizing mass wherever possible. This approach resulted in the SAYL Chair earning MBDC Cradle to Cradle Silver, BIFMA level 2, and GREENGUARD certifications.
