The HÅG Capisco 8107 ergonomic 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. 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 ergonomic saddle chair's inception.
This headrest office chair 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 fabrics the Capisco can surely be configured to match your needs. Ships in 3-4 weeks. Always Free of course. Please contact us if you'd like fabric that meets CAL TB133 fire standards (*this increases the ship time to 16 weeks). This saddle seat office chair is 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. This ergonomic saddle 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.
Configuration Note: The HÅG Capisco 8107 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 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 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.
Peter Opsvik works together with seven colleagues in his studio. Although Peter Opsvik comes up with most of the basic concepts, the work of translating his raw idea into a finished, manufacturable product is a team effort.
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.
