Yves Behar Sexes Up The Office Chair For Herman Miller



    Herman Miller

    The humble workplace workhorse gets a sleek update in the hands of San Francisco-based industrial designer Yves Béhar. The curly-haired tastemaker, who's been a hired gun for companies such as Swarovski, Apple, Nike and Birkenstock, has introduced the new Sayl chair for iconic furniture firm Herman Miller. The eco-friendly seating sports a stunningly modern, webbed back, which is patterned after the Golden Gate Bridge's suspension design. The frameless Y back also allows for air flow, so you can keep cool. Best of all, it's affordably priced at $399 and comes in a bevy of colors, so it's perfect for anyone wanting to spruce up their home office. [Via ApartmentTherapy.]

    Barbara Adler is the head of PR for a troupe of breakdancing moms (yes, you read that right). The problem? With papers strewn, a blocked entrance and a less-than-stellar storage system, Barbara's home office is as difficult to navigate as some of the group's routines. We enlisted interior designer Rose Ott and construction professional Frank Ott, a husband-wife team, who give the home office a fresh (and functional) look.
