Inspired by the principles of suspension bridges, the frameless back of the SAYL work chair encourages a full range of movement while the suspension back material keeps you cool—all with an extremely small environmental impact. It is everything a Herman Miller chair should be. At a very attainable price.
Family of Seating
Herman Miller designed a whole family of SAYL chairs, including work and side chairs. All with the same high style and innovative engineering.
Work chairs feature a 5-star base and upholstered seat with either a suspension or upholstered back. Side chairs feature either a 4 leg or cantilever base and upholstered seat with your choice of suspension, upholstered, or plastic backs.
In creating SAYL, Herman Miller used fewer materials in inventive ways to make the chair attainable for more people. Fewer parts and less material ultimately mean less cost and a smaller carbon footprint.
The ArcSpan seat base, arm structure, and tilt mechanism undercarriage are fused into a single, strong part, reducing the chair’s material content and its visual “weight”. The Y-Tower structure is sculpted and hollowed out to achieve the most strength with the least amount of material.
Controls are expressive and tactile. Just as important, they have been refined until only their essential forms remain.
As affordable as it is inventive, SAYL disproves the notion that a reasonably priced chair means offhand design and minimal ergonomics. From the beginning, Herman Miller’s goal was to make a high-quality, beautifully designed, comfortable chair that lived up to our standards and was also affordable. SAYL is that chair.
