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 their standards and was also affordable. SAYL is that chair.
Sayl is 93% recyclable and features a 12 year warranty. GreenTag Certified.
Fewer parts and less material ultimately mean less cost and a smaller carbon footprint.
Yves Behar was asked by Herman Miller to design a highly affordable chair that would incorporate everything Herman Miller is known for: Beautiful design, first-class ergonomics, elegant engineering, and respect for the environment. Behar, who calls San Francisco home, began by looking at designs that deliver the most with the least. And then he took a look at his city's best-known landmark: the Golden Gate Bridge.
Herman Miller's work with Yves Behar achieved a breakthrough in seating technology. Support is molded 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. At the same time, less tension in other parts of the back encourages a full range of seated movement.
