"Design means observing objectively." - Naoto Fukasawa

With its sculpted silhouette and sophisticated simplicity of form, the Saiba Chair subtly elevates the atmosphere around it while providing an effortless sense of comfort to the person sitting in it. The sleek, contoured high-back - impeccably tailored in a curated textile offering and set atop a black or polished aluminum base - invites people to settle in.

The Saiba multitask chair features a tilt mechanism lock to hold chair at certain points in the recline angle. The double-wheel casters are offered in black only. Base column always matches base finish.

Designed for Geiger by Tokyo-based Naoto Fukasawa, the Saiba High Back Multitask Chair - and the entire family of Saiba seating and tables - are part of the Herman Miller Collection.

26" w | 17" d | 37.5" - 41.5" h | seat: 17.5" - 21.5" h

Naoto Fukasawa

Japanese designer Naoto Fukasawa (b. 1956) graduated from Tama Art University in 1980 and quickly began working as a designer for the Seiko-Epson corporation. He came to the United States in 1989 and started working for the then upstart ID Two company, which employed only 15 people at the time. In 1996, he helped to set up their Tokyo office and served as its head while they became known as IDEO. Fukasawa remained with the company until 2003 when he established his own company, Naoto Fukasawa Design. To focus on household appliances and sundries, he created the ±0 brand, but was also becoming well known around the same time for products such as MUJI’s CD player (which is in MoMA’s permanent collection), mobile phones “Infobar” and “Neon,” as well as new works with Italian companies B&B Italia, Driade, Magis, Artemide, Danese, and Boffi.

Herman Miller was a West Michigan businessman who helped his son-in-law, D.J. De Pree, buy the Michigan Star Furniture Company in 1923. De Pree had been working at the company, which opened in 1905, since he was hired in 1909 as a clerk. De Pree knew his father-in-law was a man of integrity, so he decided to rename the company after him. By the middle of the 20th century, the name Herman Miller had become synonymous with modern furniture. Working with legendary designers George Nelson and Charles and Ray Eames, the company produced pieces that would become classics of industrial design.

These are much more beautiful and elegant in real life. I just received a pair in tenera leather and the upholstery job from Herman Miller is stunning. These are perfect. Fukasawa, the designer, is a world class genius and in the simplicity, beauty, and engineering of the Saiba concept, he has proven it again. Strongly recommend.
