Sayl Task Chair

: Yves Béhar

Inspired by suspension bridges—structures that deliver the most using the least material—Sayl's 3D Intelligent back lets you stretch and move, striking a healthy balance between support and freedom. The elastomer strands vary in thickness and tension to provide greater support along the spine where you need it most, and less everywhere else so you are free to move.

Green Apple Sayl Chair Back

Fewer parts, less material, and still everything
a good chair should be

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 everything a good chair should be. Fewer parts and less material also mean a smaller environmental impact.

Sayl designer Yves Béhar and our development team considered and reconsidered every part of the chair—and, in the end, created a better, smarter chair that sets the reference point in its class for quality, performance, and design.

    Built-in PostureFit

    The vertical and horizontal strands of Sayl’s 3D Intelligent suspension back provide passive PostureFit sacral support, which tilts your hips slightly forward to keep your spine in healthy alignment for improved posture and increased comfort.

  • An Array of Options

    An Array of Options

    From an optional lumbar support that can be adjusted vertically to fit the natural curve of your spine to fully adjustable arms, you have a choice of options that let you outfit your Sayl chair to match your preferences.

  • Responsible Design

    Responsible Design

    By applying the engineering principles of suspension bridges, designer Yves Béhar used less material in more inventive ways to provide ergonomic support for people up to 350 pounds (159 kg). Also, Sayl contains no PVCs, and its materials are almost entirely recyclable.

  • Expressive Character

    Expressive Character

    Sayl’s unframed back and Y-Tower support create a striking visual aesthetic that reveals both the designer’s inspiration and intent. An expressive color palette gives you plenty of options for personalizing your chair.

Living Unframed

"The best for the most for the least"

Beauty, Elegance, Respect

We like working with designer Yves Béhar, who designed our Leaf and Ardea personal lights. We like the way he thinks unframed, never constrained by what's expected or typical.

So we went to him when we wanted a highly affordable ergonomic work chair that would incorporate everything Herman Miller is known for—beautiful design, first-class ergonomics, elegant engineering, and respect for the environment. Béhar began by scratching a quote from Charles Eames onto his sketchpad: "The best for the most for the least." And then Béhar, who calls San Francisco home, took a look at his city's best-known landmark: the Golden Gate Bridge.

Chair Inspired by Golden Gate Bridge Yves Béhar Designing Sayl Chair

Something Unique

So there was the concept. Creating the actual chair wasn't quite that simple. Sayl wasn't designed on a computer. It was sketched and sketched again, and numerous prototypes were built and rejected before the design was right. He describes the process as "draw, build, break, and repeat until you arrive at something unique."

So why the name "Sayl?" Take a look at the chair from the side. See the resemblance to a full mainsail? The name reflects the sailing vessels that pass beneath the bridge that inspired the original design. Replacing the "i" in "Sail" with a "y" is a nod to the innovative Y-Tower structure of the work chair.

Suspending a Chair

Béhar wondered, could the engineering principles of a suspension bridge be applied to a chair? It turned out that not only was it possible, but using a suspension tower to support an unframed back would reduce materials, weight, and environmental impact. The flexible elastomer suspension material could be stretched in a way that provided the greatest tension at points where support is needed and the least in areas that would allow for the most expansive range of motion.

Polished Aluminum

For normal cleaning, apply a pre-softened paste wax to polished aluminum components following the manufacturer's instructions. In humid atmospheres near salt water, apply the wax once a month. In other areas, apply wax every three months to maintain the appearance of the aluminum.

Fabric

For normal cleaning, vacuum upholstery fabric using an upholstery attachment. If further cleaning is needed, dry-clean or spot clean fabric with solvent cleaner.

Do not brush fabric or use a vacuum attachment with a rotary brush. Brushing may permanently damage the nap or change the character of the fabric.

Do not apply water or any liquid solution. Wetting the fabric with any liquid solution may result in permanent damage.
