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:
Its sweeping, squared-off back and low-gravity frame. The Sayl Side Chair is easily one of Herman Miller's most easy-on-the-eyes side chairs. And at $384.00 for the Sled Base version ($349.00 for the 4-Leg Base), the price is not what you'd expect to pay for an Yves Behar design.
What's Not to Like:
The Sayl Side Chair is a bit on the small side, so if you need an expansive seat and seat back, you might want to look elsewhere. Aside from that, there isn't much to say. It's a nice side chair for a nice price.
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.
