Peter Opsvik and HAG have put a new twist or spin on the highly successful upholstered Capisco saddle seat office chair from the ergonomic office seat category. In place of the original fully upholstered ergonomic seating design is a new slim and streamlined, and yes more environmentally correct and affordable model. This Capisco Puls Fully Upholstered Saddle Stool Without Back is HAG's fresh alternative with all the comfort and functionality that made the original HAG Capisco saddle chair a global hit. This version of the Capisco Puls is colorful, and at a lower price point. This saddle Capsico Stool has earned HAG yet another red dot design award. Ergonomic seating is becoming increasingly popular. The Capisco Puls Fully Upholstered Saddle Stool Without Back design will promote a natural saddle seat open thigh angle such as that of an equestrian. This posture will improve your circulation and put you in what we call an 'active sitting' position. Sit side saddle, backwards or sideways and the Puls ergonomic office seat design will support you every inch of the way. This ergonomic seating design is Norwegian-made and the quality shows it. This Puls model comes with a fully upholstered seat cushion. Your choice of shell color and seat upholstery, seat height, frame and base color, and caster.

Design Studio Note: This Puls saddle stool is very much like the original Capisco chair but incorporates a slimmer design and easier to clean frame. Perfect for just about any setting, the Puls draws on the success of the Capisco upholstered version but with a slightly different look and feel. The seat on the Puls is slightly slimmer than the original that allows the sitters leg angle to be slightly more closed in. All versions have the very cool arched foot-rests which we simply love. Not only are they distinctive in appearance but they are a great place to rest your tired feet when working. Overall we give the new Puls an A++ for design and affordability.

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.
