The story of the HÅG Capisco is a story of philosophy. Of exploring our nature, and providing something better. It is a story of one man’s vision which has helped to shape a brand ideology. And it is the story of a classic design which has outlived its contemporaries and continues to inspire to this very day.

“IF WE ARE ALLOWED TO MOVE, WE MOVE”
Launched in 1984, The HÅG Capisco has received both national and international attention. Its unique design challenged the pre-existing concepts of seating, and offered a brand new experience. Developed by legendary Industrial Designer and jazz musician Peter Opsvik, the Capisco was the result of Opsvik’s study of the human body, and his belief that “If we are allowed to move, we move”.
