The HÅG Capisco Flat Seat version of the Capisco Saddle is for sitters that desire a more conventional seat and not that of the saddle style. 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. HÅG Capisco was awarded "the classic award for design excellence" by the Norwegian Design Council in 2001. The rest is history! Many hundreds of thousands of Capisco's have been sold worldwide since the chairs 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 Capisco can surely be configured to match your needs. Most versions ship in 6 weeks. Always Free of course. 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). Maybe the most interesting chair that we handle. The Capisco is a leader in the new active and dynamic sitting revolution. Ships Free in 6 weeks with fabric, 12 weeks with leather.

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 be it the saddle seat of this flat seat version. 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 casted 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.

*Just a note on caster options. The Hard Breaking Casters break while loaded, which means that the breaks stop the chair from rolling while you are seated.

Configuration Note: The Capisco 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 StepUp platform can be fitted for the higher lift options as well. The StepUp platform swivels on its own set of casters and features a prominent ball to refresh your feet by way of a massage. 

Illustration Notes: Certain images of the Capisco on this page show the 'Saddle Version' and not the flat seat version. The Flat Seat does not have the sculpted and arched seat with the forward foam support that 'juts' out. The Saddle shots are used to show certain options that are available on both versions.



 The GREENGUARD Gold Certification Standard includes health-based criteria for additional chemicals (compare to GREENGUARD Standard) and also requires lower total volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions levels to ensure that products are acceptable for use in environments such as schools and health care facilities. In addition to limiting emissions of more than 360 VOCs and total chemical emissions, GREENGUARD Gold Certified products must also comply with requirements of the state of California Department of Public Health (CDPH) Standard Method for the Testing and Evaluation of Volatile Organic Chemical Emissions from Indoor Sources Using Environmental Chambers,(also known as California Section 01350). Office furniture products that are GREENGUARD Gold Certified are also compliant with the BIFMA X7.1 standard.
