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. With 3-cylinder height options, foot-rings and a plethora of quick ship fabrics the HAG Capisco saddle chair can surely be configured to match your needs. Most versions ship in 6 weeks. Always Free of course. This saddle stool with back support comes in over seventy five different fabrics in a choice of three frame finishes. Can meet CAL TB133 fire standards (*this increases the ship time to 16 weeks). May be the most interesting saddle stool with back support that we handle. The HAG Capisco saddle chair is a leader in the new active and dynamic sitting revolution.

Design Studio Note: Well, this could be our favorite chair certainly in terms or originality and design? Given the interesting options, extensive 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.
Configuration Note: The Capisco saddle stool with back support can be configured in three different seat heights. A circular foot-ring can be fitted on either of the two higher lift options and the lovely HAG Step Up platform can be fitted for the higher lift options as well. The Step Up platform swivels on its own set of casters and features a prominent ball to refresh your feet by way of a massage. There are several caster options.

The studio has a strong focus on product design as a mean for solving real-life problems. Core competence is furniture design, interior design, ergonomics, environmental oriented solutions, engineering and communication. The studio works both independently and in close collaboration with major manufacturers, such as Hag and Varier.
