The Sayl Task Chair family reimagines office seating with unparalleled comfort, progressive style, and sustainable design for the iconic office furniture manufacturer, Herman Miller.
The SAYL chair for Herman Miller leads the way in ergonomic task seating: lighter, more ergonomic and technologically advanced, SAYL is also the lowest cost task chair produced by Herman Miller.
By rethinking every part of the chair, we were able to innovate the back structure and offer the first frameless suspension system, inspired by suspension bridges. Beyond obvious mechanical innovations that this construction offers, our goal was to remove anything that was not necessary while still delivering the high level of performance and aesthetics that the Herman Miller brand is known for.
The unique back rest suspension material allows for a full range of movement while the open pattern keeps you cool while you work, making it an ideal design for nearly any workplace. In addition, SAYL offers many choices in suspension materials and colors in both task and side chairs that will suite the taste of any consumer. A highly affordable chair, empowered with first-class ergonomics, elegant engineering and an extremely small environmental impact adds a new level of sophistication and value to the Herman Miller product offering.
With the team at Fuseproject, I was responsible for early concept ideation through refinement for manufacturing for the entire Sayl family. In addition to my contribution to the main Sayl design concept, I was heavily involved with the back pattern concept and refinement, lumbar support and side chair concept development and refinement.
