People at their best live unframed, going beyond expectations to surprise and delight us. When you settle into the frameless back of a SAYL chair, you experience unprecedented freedom of movement and beautiful support - with an extremely small environmental impact. 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.


  • Frameless 3D Intelligent Suspension back that allows freedom of movement
  • Upholstered seat with foam padding and passive Posturefit back support
  • Synchronous tilt provides continuous balance and lets the body recline naturally
  • 5-Star base with choice of carpet or hard floor casters
  • Chair is tested and warranted for use by persons 350 pounds and under
  • Arms can be removed in the field with no tools required
  • A support system that molds directly to your body
  • Inspired by Golden Gate - The suspension material is stretched from the Y-Tower frame just as cables are stretched from the towers of a suspension bridge
  • Varying Tension: greater in transition areas, from the thoracic to the lumbar areas and between the lumbar area and sacrum
  • ''Hinge points'' allow areas to flex and support the healthy, forward rotation of the pelvis while simultaneously giving less tension to other parts of the back to allow full range seated movement.
  • Back suspension made of Eco-Dematerialised materials and is 93% recyclable
  • Contains no PVC
  • Comprised of 10% recycled materials
  • Cradle to Cradle and GREENGUARD certified
  • Wayfair backs a 12-year manufacturer warranty if you have any problem with your SAYL chair, Herman Miller will cover the cost of fixing it

    Questions & Answers

    Still have questions about this product? We're here to help

    “Hello, what are the cleaning instructions for this chair?” asked by Calvin

    "Hello Calvin, for normal cleaning, wash with a soft cloth soaked in mild detergent and warm water. Rinse thoroughly and dry with a soft cloth. Do not use solvents or abrasive kitchen cleaners. For ink stains apply isopropyl alcohol to a clean, damp absorbent cloth. Start at the outside of the ink stain and work towards the center. Apply pressure but do not rub too vigorously. It is important as the cloth becomes stained, use a clean section of the dampened cloth or the stain will spread. Apply isopropyl alcohol to the cloth as needed. If ink stain persists, use acetone in place of procedure above. This procedure is not intended for normal cleaning." Erica from Wayfair

    “Hi, what is the weight capacity of this chair?” asked by Cindy

    Not crazy about this chair

     from Oakton, VA– Verified Buyer

    I was very excited to get this chair, but I almost sent it back. The back is shorter than it appears and it is not easy to get it comfortable. There was an "option" for the chair that I did not see which is some kind of back adjustment. I would recommend getting that because I feel like the chair is tilting straight up and down. The arms of the chair are a hard molded material that is not uncomfortable. There are many other chairs out there that work better and cost less.

    Very comfortable chair

     from Forest Hills, NY– Verified Buyer

    The chair is is well-made, comfortable, and aesthetically pleasing. It was easy to assemble, piece of cake! I bought this chair because of its modern design and the reputation of Herman Miller. In addition, it is made mostly of recyclable materials! The SAYL chair has met our expectations. I would recommend it to everyone who needs reliable ergonomic desk or computer chair.

    Over Priced

     from NC– Verified Buyer

    This chair is made of hard plastic except for the seat. It looks as shown but for the price I would have expected something of higher quality. The back support is good and the chair feels comfortable but I don't think it's worth the price. Doubt it will last 10 years as the warranty states.

    Herman Miller - Always Worth the Investment

     from Santa Ana, CA– Verified Buyer

    Four years ago I purchased two Embody chairs by Herman Miller (HM). Friends and family winced when I told them how much they were, thought as soon as they sat in them, they understood why they cost a small fortune each. That being said, our office expanded this year and we needed more chairs, and we needed them quickly. I didn't give really any thought to getting a non-HM built chair. The SAYL chair, for the money, feels amazing. Comfort and quality-wise, no issues whatsoever. The only thing I'd caution about is there are A LOT of additional options that may make customizing a bit overwhelming. If you are truly looking to save money, don't worry about the adjustable height arms or the seat angle. The lumbar support isn't a bad investment, however isn't necessary; or noticeable for people people. Also, be cautioned the fog base gets dirty fairly quickly as you naturally tend to put your feet on it while sitting. Enjoy your SAYL!
