Sayl Task Chair
I knew that creating a work chair is one of designs greatest challenges, an intimidating project in every possible way, says Swiss designer Yves Bhar. There is no place to hide in a chair. Every part serves a structural or tactile purpose. Bhar didnt have to look far from his adopted home of San Francisco for the inspiration of his Sayl Task Chair (2010). The geometry of the Golden Gate Bridge suspension system can be seen in the airiness of the chairs signature back. Its name reflects the sailboats that pass beneath the famous bridge, and replacing the i in sail with a y is a nod to the chairs innovative Y-Tower structure, which provides ample support. The ventilated elastomer back flexes with your body and permits free air circulation, and the four-setting tilt limiter lets you adjust tension and range to your liking. Low-cost but high-concept, Sayl took almost three years to create and is Cradle to Cradle Silver Certified for sustainability. Although 90% recyclable, this task chair is no mere throwaway: It includes a 12-year manufacturer’s warranty and is shipped as two pieces in a box thats half the chairs size for minimal transportation impact. To assemble, simply lock the seat into the base no tools required. Made in U.S.A.
