SAYL side chairs can move seamlessly from conference to work group and back again. They have been designed to take up less visual space, and you can stack the 4-leg version up to four high for easy storage. Lots of options—back, base, arms, colors. Elegant styling at an attainable price.
Get the side chair that looks right and works right for you. You can have a chair with a 4-leg base and glides or casters, with or without arms. Or choose a chair with a cantilever base with or without arms. You can have a suspension similar to the 3D Intelligent suspension back on the work chair, or a familiar upholstered back.
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.
3D Intelligent Suspension Technology
Herman Miller’s work with Yves Béhar 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. At the same time, less tension in other parts of the back encourages a full range of seated movement.
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.
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.
