The HAG Capisco saddle chair began with the dynamic seating posture of the horse rider. No one sits as actively as an equestrian when seated. Peter Opsvik and HÅG has successfully recreated this ideal seating position for active work settings. You can feel the dynamics as soon as you sit down on this saddle stool with back support. The HAG Capisco saddle chair was awarded "the classic award for design excellence" by the Norwegian Design Council in 2001. The rest is history! Many hundreds of thousands of HAG Capisco saddle chairs have been sold worldwide since the saddle stool with back support's inception.
This design lends its success to its ability to allow the spine to find its natural curvature. This version of the HAG Capisco saddle seat chair is configured with Quickship fabrics and the standard medium seat height. Shipping is always free of course. Maybe the most interesting saddle stool with back support that we handle. The HAG Capisco saddle seat chair is a leader in the new active and dynamic sitting revolution. Available in Grade 1 Camira Chicago Polyester, Grade 3 Canter Healthcare Vinyl and Wallsdorf Paloma Leather. See the fabric selector button above to view and choose quickship upholstery swatches!

Design Studio Note: Well, this could be our favorite chair certainly in terms or originality and design. Given the interesting options, textiles and leathers and the fact that this active sitting chair or stool has been around since active sitting became in vogue, then yes it might be! We love the Capisco in any form. This chair is a product of Norway and the quality certainly shows. Without a doubt, the detail that catches our eye every time is the carefully cast aluminum painted or polished base. At the base tips, a cute little feature is sculpted in. Yep, a ribbed and arched foot rest. Flip your loafers or flats off and massage the tired soles of your feet or merely perch them atop the base and get them off the floor. Active sitting incorporates all aspects of movement right down to your feet! Just another small way to help your circulation and improve your health as you work away the day. Sit sideways. Sit backwards. It's all good and part of every Capisco chair.
