Herman Miller Sayl Chair

With a seat back inspired by a suspension bridge, the Herman Miller Sayl Chair ($400) is architecture and engineering as much as it is seating and decor. Designed by Yves Béhar, the chair features a frameless back that uses a proprietary injection-molded material that provides sacral, lumbar and spine support, adapting to your shape and movements instantly. It's got Herman Miller's standard minimalist design, and even has fewer parts and less material than normal for a smaller carbon footprint. In addition to the work chairs, there's also a matching family of side chairs.
