Herman Miller Sayl® Office Chair

The Sayl® is an affordable task chair incorporating everything Herman Miller is known for: innovative design, leading ergonomics, quality engineering, and environmental stewardship.

Inspired by principles of suspension bridges, Sayl® provides an unprecedented sense of freedom. Designer Yves Behar 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 3D intelligent back is the first task chair back that is literally frameless. It suspends with different degrees of tension providing sacral, lumbar and spine support and adapts to shape and movements. A range of options allows Sayl® to sit equally in the home or office. A new reference point for performance, quality and appearance.


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.

Dynamic Support
The foundational shell of the fully upholstered work chair mimics the 3D Intelligent suspension, providing similar dynamic support in a more traditional back.

Responsible Design
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.

Herman Miller Sayl® is covered by a 12 year conditional warranty.
