The HÅG Capisco chair is the chair that inspires “active” sitting and has been designed with the human body in mind.
The HÅG Capisco chair has been designed so that you can sit on it any way that you feel, backwards, forwards, sideways, high, low or anywhere in between.
The seat of the chair is shaped the same as a saddle, which is where the designer Peter Opsvik originally thought of the idea. No one else sits as actively as a horse rider does while riding, therefore by using this design idea the HÅG Capisco philosophy was created.
The Capisco, like all of the HÅG chairs, has been designed around the human body. “The human body was not designed to sit still, it was designed for movement and variation” and that is why the Capisco chair is so unique, it allows the body to change positions almost seamlessly throughout the day.
The HÅG Capisco is not only well designed for the human body, it is also designed to be aesthetically pleasing in any environment, with sleek smooth lines and a variety of colours and fabrics to fit into any work area.
No other chair is so well adapted to different heights or working situations. Sit down and adjust it from a low height to a semi-standing position and experience the numerous benefits of this unique sitting solution
