Herman Miller Sayl Side Chair with Sled Base
designed by Yves Behar
At A Glance:
The Sayl Side Chair with Sled Base is the lighter, go-anywhere little brother of Herman Miller's Sayl Task Chair, the latest creation from the offices of Yves Behar, a San Fransisco designer whose reputation precedes him as a world-class designer. While not achieving the frameless, suspension-bridge-like design of the task chair, the side chair is beautiful in its own right, unique, and priced affordably.
What's To Like:
Sayl side chairs can move seamlessly from conference room to work group and back again. They have been designed to take up less visual space, and the 4-leg version stacks up to four high for easy storage. Lots of options—back, base, arms, colors—join with elegant styling all at an attainable price.
Given their wide array of classic and expressive color selections, Sayl side chairs can work with any décor. And the organic shape of the Sayl side-chair back makes it elegant anywhere, from every angle. Select a suspension back similar to the 3D Intelligent suspension back on the work chair, or a familiar upholstered back. As to base options, selections range from a 4-leg base and glides or casters, with or without arms, to a cantilever base with or without arms.
The Bottom Line:
This is a chair with the looks of a piece of sculpture, and its curving, relaxed back feels great to lean into. It doesn't get much better than that.
