Imagine a suspension bridge with sailing vessels floating close by.  Both objects, the sail and the bridge, are represented in this new chair designed by Yves Béhar in collaboration with Herman Miller.  The sail is reflected in the name, Sayl, and look of the chair, while the bridge is reflected in the frameless back structure and colorful suspension material. 


It goes without saying that Herman Miller has a commitment to sustainability which is apparent in its products.  Specifically, Sayl is pending Silver Cradle to Cradle, BIFMA level 2, and GreenGuard certifications. 

Depending on the model, these chairs are up to 93% recyclable and made with up to 21% recycled content materials.  They're also PVC-free and manufactured with 100% green power (50% from wind turbines and 50% from captured landfill off-gassing). 

The Sayl family includes work and side chairs.  They're also somewhat approachable in price, with the side chair starting at ~$350 and the work chair starting at ~$525, according to list prices in a Herman Miller price book.
