9to5 Seating will begin manufacturing one of Europe’s most groundbreaking seating products of the last century. The HÅG Capisco and HÅG Capisco Puls feature versatility and unparalleled ergonomics that are right in step with the active seating movement popular in the US market.

The innovative design of HÅG Capisco and HÅG Capisco Puls integrates movement with comfort through thoughtful engineering.

Unique in the market, HÅG Capisco and HÅG Capisco Puls are exceptionally suited for seating that must adapt to different heights, with three cylinder heights, for use at a traditional desk, at a standing desk or alternating between the two. A treaded foot plate on the base enables easily shifting between positions.

The curved seat on the HÅG Capisco and HÅG Capisco Puls is reminiscent of a saddle to promote a natural upright posture.
