Herman Miller’s newest products Arras and SAYL have been named as finalists in the 2011 Australian International Design Awards.
June 27th, 2011
One of the longest standing and most prestigious design awards in the world, AIDA rewards companies that differentiate their products and services through design.
The latest products in the Herman Miller portfolio, Arras and SAYL have been largely popular and widely acclaimed.
Arras is a bench solution available in a range of colours and finishes, and versatile enough to let you sit anywhere and at any time.
The Yves Béhar-designed SAYL is an affordable task chair that embodies the Herman Miller philosophy – innovative design, leading ergonomics, quality engineering and environmental stewardship.
SAYL has already been described as the ’iMac of the chair world’ by The Independent, and was named in Treehugger’s Best of Green awards earlier this year.
Winners of the 2011 Australian International Design Awards will be announced on 22 July as part of Victoria’s State of Design Festival. Stay tuned to Indesignlive for the winners announcement.
