The Capisco is one of the most unique task chairs out there, and it predates the Aeron revolution by years. The Capsico is designed to do some things that no other task chair does, which gives it the unique form you see here.
Lets look at some of the Capisco's more interesting features.
• We'll start with the seat this time! The Capisco has a saddle like seat, meaning like a bicycle saddle with a protruding center section. What is going on here is more like a standard seat that has been cut away on each side. What this does is allow for a more relaxed half stand, half sit position when the chair is set for a higher work surface. This chair is ideal for people that like an adjustable height work surface and change the height of their desk often. Its also ideal for lab workers that may spend all their time at higher surfaces than desks.
• The back is also unique. A narrow back bad is flanked by two short armrests. In a recline these rests give you someplace to rest your elbows. But it also allows for another unique seating position - turned around with your legs straddling the back, and you chest resting on the back pad. Great for leaning over your work, another position to widen the range of possibilities, and keep you fresh in your work.
• The Capisco is available three ways - as a stool, as a chair, and as a high back chair with head rest. They also offer a non saddle seat pad version, but still with a rolled front edge that accommodates the standing sit.
• The Capisco uses HÅG's low profile base, but they also offer a foot rest accessory. A satellite footrest if you will, a small platform for you feet with its own set of castors.
