The Herman Miller Sayl Draughtsman's stool was inspired by suspension bridges – structures that deliver the most using the least material – Sayl stools extend the distinctive look of the Yves Béhar-designed Sayl chair into settings that feature high tables or counters.
The elastomer strands of the stool’s 3D Intelligent back support you as you stretch and move, striking a healthy balance between support and freedom.
Yves Béhar is a the founder of fuseproject ("dedicated to the emotional experience of brands through storytelling"), Béhar has been exploring the design world since his childhood in Switzerland. "In Europe, it is second nature to evaluate objects based on how they work and how they look", he explains.
One of the countless magazine articles written about Béhar called him "the multi-disciplinary designer of our time". His long list of awards includes the prestigious National Design Award from the Smithsonian's Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum, where his work is part of their permanent collection.
His collaboration with Herman Miller came about through one such conversation. An admirer of Charles and Ray Eames, Béhar decided that he wanted to do something for the company himself. "Design is very much at the centre of Herman Miller's culture", he says. "So one day I just picked up the phone, called them and said, 'Let's work together'".
