Ahead of the launch of his forthcoming book, Designing Ideas (released in July), Yves Béhar has created a limited-edition subscribers’ cover (and animated version) and talks in depth with Wallpaper’s transport and technology editor Jonathan Bell about how he believes design and technology can combine to tackle key challenges of the 21st century – sustainability, accessibility, and diversity. The special June issue hits stands today and is available for download on wallpaper.com.
Inspired by the upcoming monograph, Designing Ideas, he juxtaposes product design details with behind-the-scenes sketches and illustrations to reveal the journey of making. The print version shows Behar sketching the seatback of his ‘Sayl’ chair for Herman Miller, alongside a rendering of the pattern of the Jambox speaker. Read the full story here.
