The luxurious Sling sofa, primarily intended for use in semi-public areas, such as waiting rooms or lounges, was available as a two-, three-, or four-seater. For a short time an armchair (Love Seat) was also produced. All structural elements of the sofa are visible. Elastic straps (slings) supporting the back are stretched vertically into a frame, and wide straps support the seat. Loose seats and back cushions.

Produced by Herman Miller from 1964 to 2000.
