This month, Herman Miller launched its latest addition to an already monster collection of exceptional task chairs. At a price point starting out well below the infamous Aeron and most recent Embody chairs, "SAYL", by Yves Behar, is accessible to a wider consumer scope. True to Herman Miller's reputation, top notch design and function did not suffer as a result of the attractive price tag. This chair is lovely to look at: sculpturally impressive with a minimal approach and boasts the ergonomics that this design house is famous for.

Here's Herman Miller's product story on SAYL:
People at their best live unframed, going beyond expectations to surprise and delight us. With SAYL, we set out to design and build a chair family that gives form to that spirit. Inspired by the principles of suspension bridges, the frameless back of the SAYL work chair encourages a full range of movement while the suspension back material keeps you cool—all with an extremely small environmental impact. It is everything a Herman Miller chair should be. At a very attainable price.

Inspired by San Fransisco's Golden Gate bridge, SAYL is available in several colour combinations including neutral tones and some bright accent colours, making it appropriate for various settings.
