Task Chair | Sayl

Category: Ergonomic Seating

The Herman Miller Sayl chair was inspired by the principles of suspension bridges. The frameless back encouraging a full range of movement while the suspension back material keeps you cool. Sayl is a chair with ergonomics built in, with an extremely small environmental impact at a very attainable price.

Sayl represents 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. The foundational shell of the upholstered work chair mimics the 3D Intelligent suspension. That gives the upholstered chair a healthy balance between support and freedom. An optional lumbar support for the upholstered work chair provides adjustment over a four-inch range.

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.

Sayl chairs are produced on three continents to reduce the distance between factory and buyer. They ship ready to assemble (no tools required) in half-size boxes that create less waste.

Sayl chairs contain no PVCs and are 93 percent recyclable.
