Herman Miller Sayl Chair Full Feature

Select Finish
“I knew that creating a work chair is one of design’s greatest challenges, an intimidating project in every possible way,” says Swiss designer Yves Béhar. “There is no place to hide in a chair. Every part serves a structural or tactile purpose.” With a ventilated back for air circulation and tilt limiter that lets you adjust tension and range to your liking, this chair accomplishes a great deal with only the essentials. Sayl is 90% recyclable.


  • Ventilated elastomer back flexes with your body and permits free air circulation.
  • Harmonic Tilt supports the way you naturally move for a smooth and balanced recline.
  • To assemble, simply lock the seat into the base – no tools required.
  • 90% recyclable (shipped as two pieces in a box that’s half the chair’s size for minimal impact).
  • 12-year warranty.

Yves Béhar

Yves Béhar was one of the first designers to talk about the narrative content of form and the emotional connection between person and object. In the decade since, he has become one of the heroes of the design world by performing extraordinary feats of design that fuse poetry with technological innovation.

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.
