Inspired by the principles of suspension bridges, the frame less back of the Herman Miller - Herman Miller - SAYL work chair encourages a full range of movement while the suspension back material keeps you cool all with a very small environmental impact.
It is everything a Herman Miller chair should be.
At a very attainable price. Herman Miller has achieved a breakthrough in seating technology. Support is moulded directly into the 3D Intelligent back material.
The suspension material is stretched from the Y-Tower at the back of the chair just as cables are stretched from the towers of a suspension bridge. The tension is greater in the transition areas, from the thoracic to the lumbar areas and between the lumbar area and sacrum. "Hinge points" allow these areas to flex and support the healthy, forward rotation of the pelvis.
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.
Good design, healthy support, and exceptional value are always attractive—and Sayl delivers all three. By using smart engineering to transform simple materials, we were able to make Sayl attainable for more people.
A New Reference Point:
Sayl designer Yves Béhar and our development team considered and reconsidered every part of the design—and, in the end, created a full family of seating that sets the reference point in its class for quality, performance, and design.
3D Intelligent Back:
Sayl’s unframed 3D Intelligent back lets you stretch and move, striking a healthy balance between support and freedom. The elastomer strands of the suspension back vary in thickness and tension to provide greater support in the transition areas along the spine and less everywhere else to encourage a full range of seated movement.
The construction of Sayl’s 3D Intelligent suspension back provides passive PostureFit sacral support, which allows your spine to maintain its natural “S” shape and empowers your body to maintain a healthful posture with less fatigue.
The foundational shell of the fully upholstered work chair mimics the 3D Intelligent suspension, providing similar dynamic support in a more traditional back. An optional lumbar support is available on both work chair models and provides adjustment over a 4-inch (10 cm) range.
Inspired by Suspension:
Inspired by suspension bridges—structures that deliver the most using the least material—Yves Béhar applied the engineering principles of these amazing structures to create Sayl. The Eco-Dematerialized design of the work chair uses less material in more inventive ways to provide ergonomic support for people up to 350 pounds (159 kg).
We produce Sayl on three continents to reduce the distance between the factory and the buyer. This product contains no PVCs and its materials are almost entirely recyclable.
Sayl’s unframed back and Y-Tower support create a striking visual aesthetic that reveals both the designer’s inspiration and intent. Whether you choose the full-suspension or upholstered back, an expressive color palette gives you plenty of options for personalizing your chair.
A Full Family of Seating:
The smart engineering and high style of the Sayl work chair also can be found in the Sayl stool and side chair. Work chairs, side chairs, and stools feature an upholstered seat with either a suspension or upholstered back. Side chairs feature either a 4-leg, which stacks up to 4-high, or sled base.
