With the SAYL, Herman Miller together with Yves Béhar set out to design and build a chair family that defies convention. Inspired by the principles of suspension bridges, the frameless back of the SAYL Task Chair encourages a full range of movement while the suspension back material keeps you cool—all with an extremely small environmental impact.
Developed by architect William McDonough and chemist Michael Braungart, Cradle to Cradle design recognizes the complex, abundant processes of nature’s ecosystems, or ‘biological metabolism,‘ but also articulates a parallel ‘technical metabolism’ for human industry. Both metabolisms can be characterized by eco-effective, continuous flows of materials, energy and water, and whole-community mutualism. The Cradle to Cradle design framework moves beyond the goal of only reducing an organization’s negative impacts (eco-efficiency), to provide an engaging vision for executives and comprehensive strategies for managers to create a wholly positive footprint on the planet – environmental, social and economic (eco-effectiveness). The Cradle to Cradle philosophy can apply to anything from houses to companies and to consumer products as well.
