9to5 Seating welcomes innovative active seating solution HÅG SoFi to its popular quick ship line @NCE. The HÅG SoFi is a mesh back, ergonomic and highly customizable chair designed for tasking, conference or collaboration spaces.
The HÅG SoFi combines two market drivers in a single product: clean aesthetics and groundbreaking engineering. Available in black or gray mesh, the HÅG SoFi provides ventilation and gives a sense of space thanks to its transparency, making it ideal for space planning. And HÅG SoFi has an innovative mechanism that lets users shift forward or backward, naturally finding balance in motion. This active task chair energizes the user—making HÅG SoFi a smart seating solution for workplaces that prioritize the health and well-being of their workforce.
The HÅG SoFi joins the @NCE series, which guarantees fast—usually 24-hour—shipping. The new chair delivers ergonomics, with several cutting-edge features that don’t often come on a single chair. HÅG SoFi’s ergonomic features include adjustable seat depth, padded adjustable lumbar, the intuitive HÅG in Balance mechanism and innovative SlideBack™ armrests, which slide back to allow users to get closer to their desks, sit sideways or use the armrests as elbow support.
Like all of the HÅG offerings, HÅG SoFi is environmentally responsible. It is made from over 41% recycled material and certified BIFMA LEVEL 2 and GREENGUARD GOLD.
“We’re excited to introduce another high-design product from HÅG,” said Dara Mir, President and CEO of 9to5 Seating. “And combining that with 9to5 Seating’s @NCE line that meets a need for efficiency and flexibility in the marketplace, it was a perfect combination.”
HÅG SoFi starts at $1830 list and is now available. Check in with a 9to5 Seating Sales Representative for a demo.

Pleasantly surprised and impressed – Dallas marketing agency MG Marketing shares their thoughts on adding the HÅG Capisco to their office.
When we first received the HÅG Capisco & HÅG Capisco Puls, the team was skeptical. It’s different to say the least, and I wondered if these task chairs were really going to be comfortable or more of an over-the-top attempt at ergonomics gone wrong. I’ll cut to the bottom line for those in a rush. The only thing wrong was my faulty assumption about this clever task chair. These chairs are amazing! Read on…
First off, the unique saddle shape for the seat by Norwegian designer Peter Opsvik really helped nudge us toward better posture. Throughout the day each of us found ourselves naturally more upright and less slumped. But not in an exaggerated, unrealistic way. Instead, it just felt comfortable and right – refreshing. The treaded footrests seemed to help anchor us and keep the body aligned. I’m not sure if this is connected, but I noticed one employee using the chair at the max height with his sit/stand desk raised, and he rarely uses his desk above normal height.
Second, the padding and cushioning in the seat and backrest of the HÅG Capisco was like the Goldilocks story – not too soft, not too firm, just right. HÅG is known for their commitment to sustainable, premium materials and precision construction, and 9to5 Seating delivers on sustainability during the upholstery and distribution process. But don’t just take my word for it. The Business and Institutional Furniture Manufacturer’s Association (BIFMA) has certified HÅG Capisco and HÅG Capisco Puls LEVEL 2, a rigorous classification that requires third-party testing and certification. Our team felt great in the chairs and even better knowing these office chairs were responsibly and sustainably manufactured with over 50% recycled material.
Last, the “flip” was the surprise move with both chairs that really has our team convinced that these are the ultimate task chairs. What am I talking about? Just spin the chair around, rest your chest against the backrest, and use the ergonomic cutouts as armrests while working at a desk. I heard comments like “It felt good on my arms”, “seemed to help keep my posture up”, and “it was just fun to mix it up!”.
So if you’re wondering, “are these chairs really worth it?”. Our position is definitely yes! Besides the ergonomics, sustainable materials, LEVEL 2 certification and 9to5 Seating quality, these task chairs are just fun and really add a conversation-starter element to the office. Kudos to HÅG, designer Peter Opsvik and 9to5 Seating for a truly innovative product in the traditional space of office furniture.

9to5 Seating launches Sol, a new task chair specifically designed to meet the needs of today’s agile workplace. Sol features a flexible back, adjustable arms and seat, engineered to support a range of working postures for users on cell phones, tablets or laptops.
Sol’s pivot-back technology was created to enable the torso rotation and side-to-side movement necessary for sharing or reading screens beyond the desktop. Its upwardly tapered back addresses the need for seating that allows for free movement of the shoulders and arms for users of devices of all kinds. These innovations round out Sol’s other ergonomic design features including adjustable arms, seat, lumbar and synchro mechanism.
Sol’s design supports its purpose with a slim layer of upholstery or mesh allowing easy movement. Sol’s modern lines and aluminum accents were created with a contemporary workspace or conference room in mind.
“Sol was imagined for integration in today’s fluid workplace,” said Dara Mir, President and CEO of 9to5 Seating. “Smart design isn’t a perk anymore—it’s how today’s offices do business.”
Sol starts at $925 list, is BIFMA LEVEL 1, GREENGUARD Gold certified and warranted to 300 lbs. Click here to learn more about the new Sol.
