Great design, affordable price

As affordable as it is inventive, Sayl proves our belief that a reasonably priced work chair can be well designed and include leading-edge ergonomics. Designing Sayl started with understanding the needs of people and designing an ergonomic work chair that incorporates everything that Herman Miller chairs are known for. By rethinking every part, we were able to create a better, smarter chair that sets a new reference point in its class for performance, ergonomics, quality, and appearance.

    3D Intelligent Technology

    Sayl's revolutionary 3D Intelligent suspension back molds the support you need into the back material, eliminating hard edges and the need for a frame. The suspension back is a flexible elastomer that adapts to each person's unique shape and provides exceptional comfort and support for just about all body types.

    Eco-Dematerialised Design

    Yves Béhar is big on environmental responsibility in design. The result is a lightweight chair that is 93 percent recyclable. Structural components are hollowed out, reducing weight and volume. The ArcSpan, arm structure, and tilt mechanism are fused into a single strong part that also reduces the chair's weight. The Sayl work chair weighs only 37 pounds.

    "The Best for the Most for the Least"

    It was the standard for the furniture designs of Charles and Ray Eames and an inspiration for Yves Béhar when working on Sayl: Make a product that is the best design for the most people at the smallest cost.

    Our goal was to make a work chair that is everything a Herman Miller chair should be in terms of ergonomics, elegant styling, superior engineering, and ecological responsibility—and be able to offer it at a very attainable price.

    Elegant Anywhere

    Shape matters, especially when introducing a chair into your home. At a desk, around a table, in the living room. The organic shape of the Sayl back makes it elegant anywhere, from every angle.

    And Sayl color choices let you express your individuality. Mix colors on the seat, back and arm pads for a bold look. Or match them for a more traditional appearance.
