Bringing Beauty to the Office Chair

The HÅG SoFi mesh back chair rewrites the playbook when it comes to office chair design.

HAG thinks freely, designs freely and moves freely; all of HAG’s chairs are produced with these ideas in mind. The Scandic design brand helps you to sit with freedom to move, rest and change to the next posture, all without having to think about it. The entire HÅG SoFi range has been designed to meet the changing needs of the modern workplace, without sacrificing aesthetic beauty.

The latest addition to the HÅG SoFi collection was made in collaboration with design houses Frost Produkt and Power Design. The result  is the fusion of aesthetics and function which has produced a beautiful and user-friendly seating solution for any office space.

“The major challenge for us was to create a beautiful object from something that is in fact a highly advanced machine,”says Aleksander Borgenhov from Power Design. “With HÅG SoFi we managed to ensure all features and mechanisms are compact and hidden away. By repeating similar visual keys in all parts of the chair, creating a coherent and harmonious design.”

The updated HÅG SoFi, with a mesh back, incorporates market-leading technologies and naturally clean aesthetics to provide a seating solution for the modern workplace, offering great design and supreme comfort. Every detail in the design has been considered to not only suit the user’s needs but to complement any interior with the huge range of fabrics and configurations to choose from.

The new HÅG SoFi mesh model continues the HÅG tradition of moving people and making life less ordinary. The range is now available from Scandinavian Business Seating Australia.
