Why Our Customers Love The HAG Capisco

Few furniture designs withstand the test of time as well as the HAG Capisco. Established as a seating icon for over 30 years, the chair is as popular and contemporary today as when it first launched.

Sitting on a regular chair for long hours is uncomfortable for many of us. The 90-degree angle between the torso and legs puts a lot of pressure on our lower back, hips, and abdomen. Also, most chairs don't offer moving options due to their design. Peter Opsvik intended to break the mold and offer something new, versatile, ergonomic and active.

What Our Customers Say

HAG Capisco best home office active chair ergonomics by PhilZen
It’s been a fabulous addition to our new home and the leather matches our headboard. It makes an office chair feel more like a designed object in the home.

Michael O. - New York

So far I'm enjoying exploring the ways I will be using the chair. I have so far sampled use of the chair while preparing food, while playing a board game, and I briefly used it at my standing desk. It will take a little time to adapt, but that process is pleasant enough.

HAG Capisco Best Home and Office Chair 2022 for active sitting by Phil Zen
HAG Capisco Best Home and Office Chair 2022 by Phil Zen
I wish this chair came into my life sooner! It is a game changer. I suffer from back and neck pain pain from poor posture and terrible work habits. I’ve had this chair for a couple of weeks now and my back already feels much better. Sitting on it for a couple of hours straight automatically adjusts your posture, similar to wearing a posture correcting brace. Definitely worth the price!

Our Feedback

We have been testing this chair for a few months, and here is what we liked :
  • It's versatile - you can use it with a standard desk or, for full benefits, with a standing desk, as it will follow you to whatever height you are working at.
  • It's active & fun - tilt, swivel, and be creative to sit in many ways thanks to the open design not limited by traditional armrests.
  • It's green & built to last - made of recycled materials, the Capisco is a premium quality product.

We have tested many ergonomic and active chairs from various brands, and the Capisco is one of our top favorites. It offers many ways to sit like most of Peter Opsvik's designs and is therefore a fun companion. No wonder it is such a bestseller and iconic chair.
