Inside Man

Yves Behar has had a hand in designing an amazing range of products, many of which you may know or own. From the stylish Roomba like Mint to the Le Cube TV receiver, the One Laptop Per Child XO Laptop, Slingbox, Jawbone ICON, Herman Miller Leaf Lamp, and Swarovski Amplify, the list goes on and on. In his work, Béhar respects society's need for a sustainable future and also takes on projects that create a better future for all.

Founder of FuseProject, a San Francisco based design agency, Yves Behar has worked with clients including Birkenstock, BMW's MINI, Herman Miller, Hewlett Packard, Microsoft, Nike, and Toshiba. The studio takes a long-term, strategic approach to developing and enhancing brands and also aims to develop the most efficient ways of producing their designs including packaging and communication materials. Their respect for sustainability begins with design but follows through all the way down to the customer experience, with the end goal of a green and complete Cradle to Cradle solution.
