i mentioned in an earlier post that i had been interviewed recently over on the herman miller blog about my home workspace and my beautiful new sayl office chair. i’m very lucky to have been introduced to herman miller by wellworking, a west london based company that provides office furniture and ergonomic solutions for the workplace and home.
they selected the SAYL chair as my perfect desk companion based on my answers to questions regarding my height and build and how i use my work area – which doubles as an entertainment station when i’m watching film and tv to unwind after a long day at work.
designed by yves béhar, who believed that people at their best live unframed, going beyond expectations to surprise and delight us, set out to design and build a chair family that gives form to that spirit. the SAYL is inspired by the principles of suspension bridges, and the frameless back of the SAYL work chair encourages a full range of movement while the suspension back material helps to keep you cool when you’ve been hard at work for hours.
before i got my SAYL, i had an industrial-style brown leather chair that i had bought at a car-boot fair (spot it here). i loved it despite it being very impractical, so i had actually been very hesitant to change chairs – but as soon as i sat in the new SAYL i was a convert!
wellworking came to my home to “install” the chair and it was adjusted to my height and my desk, meaning that from the very first time i sat down to work in it, i was the most comfortable i’ve ever been sitting at my desk. the webbed back supports me perfectly and the recline (which i’ve always hated in other chairs) is an absolute dream.
