HAG Capisco Puls: The heir to the throne

It’s never a good idea to mess with perfection. Instead, 28 years after debuting his iconic Capisco task chair, designer Peter Opsvik took the original design and simply hit “refresh.” Finally, a 21st century throne.
The ergonomic features that make the Capisco one of the most versatile saddle chairs on the market have been honored and updated in an incomparably sleek and modern design in the Puls. Featuring a stunning molded polyurethane seat and back for a sophisticated and contemporary look, the HAG Capisco Puls not only changes the way we interact with our office furniture but how we view it entirely. Movement is not the only thing the Capisco Puls inspires. Awards and accolades aside, the HAG Capisco Puls is modern, functional design at its best.
There are plenty of chairs we won’t bother to mention here that tout ergonomics as a prominent feature of the design, but which position the body in the same tired position of their predecessors. The Capisco Puls is unlikely to be confused with anything else in your office.
The Puls’ saddle seat supports users perching towards the front of their chair when the pneumatic lift is in a higher, half-standing position, achieving an open hip angle. By sitting with an open hip angle (rather than a traditional knee tilt position, legs parallel to the ground), the spine naturally creates its S-shape curve, supporting your upper body. The open hip angle also facilitates easier breathing, leading to better blood circulation throughout your body, and more energy throughout the day.
The Puls’ back is cut from the same figurative mold as its older sibling, the original Capisco. The major differences between the two aren’t in the iconic style or comfort of the Capisco back, but in the materials. While the original Capisco ships with a fully padded and upholstered seat, in keeping with its minimalist aesthetic the Puls back is made primarily of recycled plastic. The Puls, like the original, uses recycled household plastic in its parts and recycled car bumpers in its foam padding—surprisingly comfortable. The seat for the Puls is available in plastic with a strip of padding where you need it most, or with an fully upholstered seat option.

From the mechanism down, the Puls and the Capisco are identical in every way. The plastic seat and back on the Puls, in favor of the foam on the Capisco, are two of the more noticeable differences between the two saddle chairs. The finer distinctions are made only when looking at the chairs side-by-side; an inch here or there on a seat pan can make a big difference. The Puls features a slimmer saddle than the Capisco, which allows the users legs to come closer together. If you're familiar with the Capisco the difference might be too subtle for you to notice, but for users who feel the saddle was too wide on the Capisco, they will be pleasantly surprised with the scaled-down saddle on the Puls. For specific dimensions please see the dimensions tab.
If the phrases “recycled car bumpers” and “recycled household plastic” didn’t already tip you off, the Puls' minimal environmental impact is as impressive as it's stunning design: 24% post-consumer recycled content, 95% recyclable; GreenGuard certified, plus the Puls contributes to LEED credits.
