“I knew that creating a work chair is one of designs greatest challenges, an intimidating project in every possible way,” says Swiss designer Yves béhar. “There is no place to hide in a chair. Every part serves a structural or tactile purpose.” béhar didn’t have to look far from his adopted home of San Francisco for the inspiration of his Sayl task chair (2010). The geometry of the golden gate bridge suspension system can be seen in the airiness of the chairs signature back. Its name reflects the sailboats that pass beneath the famous bridge, and replacing the “I” in “sail” with a “Y” is a nod to the chairs innovative y-tower structure, which provides ample support.

    The Herman Miller Sayl chair has a unique look with a standard task chair feel.

    I’ll start by saying that the Sayl chair arrived on my doorstep in a giant box. The thing was over 50 pounds and somewhat of a challenge to bring into the house. I was actually shocked that when I opened the box the chair was just…there…fully assembled. I have had a lot of office chairs in my life, and I always had to at least assemble the base of the chair. The Sayl weighs about 50 lbs, so it wasn’t that easy to lift out of the box. However, once I got it out I noticed that two wheels were missing. They were loose in the slightly damaged box. I was able to pop the wheels back in and didn’t see any damage. But if you are shipping this chair long distances, I would be a little worried that it’s just a heavy chair in a box without a lot of padding or protection inside.

    The chair itself looks cool and is a conversation piece. When you sit in it, the Sayl does feel like a premium chair because of it’s weight and unique plastic mesh back that sort of wraps around you. That wrap effect is a little bit of a different feel than most office chairs, but for better or worse, you get used to it quickly. The seat has some cushion to it and feels fairly durable. The frame and wheels also feel premium. While the plastic mesh back looks unique and seems premium at first glance, it also is the part of the chair that feels the cheapest after awhile.

    The Sayl does offer some adjustability. You obviously can raise or lower the seat. The armrests move up and down vertically, but on my model the armrests did not slide forward or tilt in and out. You can alter the lumbar support by getting out of the chair and sliding the brace around the Y part of the backing up and down. Finally, you can get out of the seat and slide the seat forward maybe two inches or slide it back closer to the back support. With the large pores, the back has plenty of breathability. The seat rest provided more air flow than I thought it would.

    While you’re in the chair, you have decent support, but never feel cramped. It’s easy to slide around and interact with everything on your desk. So why only 4-stars? Well, the majority of the price goes toward the style of the chair. Functionally speaking, it works ok for 4 hour or less work days. I wouldn’t want to use it for an 8 hour work day. If you want to use it for extended periods of time, I recommend only doing so if you are 6’0″ or under as there isn’t enough high back support for tall individuals. At this price, I also wish I had more adjustability with the armrests to pull them out closer to the desk and tilt them inward 10-15 degrees.

    Overall, the Sayl is a cool looking chair that still feels good to sit in. But at this price, you can usually find the Herman Miller Aeron chair, which I think is more comfortable, offers more airflow on the bottom, and is a little better for taller people. But if you’re under 6’0″ tall, only need a chair for 4 hours or less a day, and want a conversation piece for your office, the Sayl will be a great fit for you.

    Probably the most amazing thing about this chair is that it comes fully assembled. So yeah, you gotta love that. Plus it looks like something you’d see in the Pratt Institute of Design; it’s easy to tell just how much thought went into the engineering of this thing. I ordered it for my husband who’s been using an armless IKEA office chair that’s on borrowed time, but he rejected it because the back was too low. When he’s working on his computer, he likes to slide down in his chair and lean his head back, but with the Herman Miller chair, that was simply not possible.

    So, basically I inherited it.

    And, for the most part, I really love it. It offers myriad different ways to adjust the seat, back and armrests to maximize comfort. The instruction booklet makes everything seem pretty simple and straightforward however, I wasn’t able to move the armrests forward and back (which is supposedly achieved by merely pulling them) and there are two levers under the left side of the seat that I couldn’t really figure out what they did or if they were even working. One is for “seat depth” and the other is a “tilt limiter.” But, even without these functions, I was able to customize the seat height, armrest height, move the lumbar support to the optimal spot and decrease the tilt tension so I could recline all the way back. If I’m not mistaken, this model also includes a “foot ring” which can be lowered down to rest your feet, but I can’t imagine needing or wanting that option so I’m leaving it alone for now.

    All in all, this is a stylish and comfortable chair. Just sitting in it (which I’m doing as I type this), I can tell it’s a high end piece. Unfortunately, because of the few operational SNAFUs I encountered, combined with the exorbitant pricetag, I can’t really rate it higher than three stars.

    This has everything I would expect in a high-end office chair: adventurous design, quality materials, ease of use, great feel.

    First — a warning — these Sayl chairs come with and without features. You DO want adjustable arms and adjustable seat depth and adjustable lumbar! Pay for those features, I say. This chair sort of places your butt in a “basket” that holds you, and the weird modernistic plastic “mesh” curves inward a bit at the bottom, and if you can’t customize it, you aren’t getting the full experience. Plus, then you get to drive yourself crazy by adjusting and re-adjusting all the features to find perfection.

    This thing weighs a ton! In a good way. It moves and spins and travels great. However, when you lift it you realize just now heavy the materials are.

    This has “honest” engineering. It is mostly plastic and metal. It doesn’t try to lean towards luxury with soft hydraulics, leather, or cushy-ness..

    I liked it at first. Now I love it.
