Last week, the furniture company Herman Miller unveiled its SAYL Chair, a new office chair designed by industrial designer Yves Behar. The chair is revolutionary in that it is made from a flexible, curving shell of plastic mesh supported by a Y-shaped spine support, hence the "Y" in the name. Frances talks with Yves Behar about the sleek new chair and why it defines the way we work and live today.
