Our favourite desk chair among many favourites.

"From Fully’s Customer Service team to our office staff to our showroom, this is the desk chair you’ll find most of us using, every single day. We love it."

Inspired by the form and movement of the body, Capisco’s human-centered design allows more healthy and active sitting postures in a single chair than three others put together. The plus-shaped back of the seat makes for comfortable backwards or sideways sitting, the contoured saddle seat opens the hips for a more active, forward posture, and of course there’s plenty of space at the back of the seat for traditional sitting.

In addition to being our most popular office chair among customers, Capisco is made from 50% recycled material and is 90% recyclable, making it a smart environmental choice, too.

Upholstery Options

So, we're about to throw some numbers at you, and they're going to be confusing, so we'll do our best to explain up front: there are two major methods by which fabric durability is rated. They are called Wyzenbeek, and Martindale, and they both involve rubbing the fabric against itself in a fancy fabric-rubbing machine, buuut they use slightly different rub patterns, and so they result in different numbers that look a lot alike, but the literature all says you can't convert between them. The Wyzenbeek is standard in the U.S. but Martindale is the international standard, so it just depends on what a manufacturer decides to go with.

To hopefully clear things up a little, here's a breakdown of the numbers, and what they mean:

Use Martindale Number Wyzenbeek Number
Light Use 6,000 - 9,000 6,000 - 9,000
Medium Use 9,000 - 20,000 9,000 - 15,000
Heavy Use/General Commercial Use 20,000 - 40,000 15,000 - 30,000
Heavy Duty Commercial Use 40,000 + 30,000 +


Our Capisco Quick-ship program includes 2 different upholstery types, in a total of 4 different colours.

Eco Polyester

  • Basic Description: a completely recycled, highly durable, rich-hued polyester upholstery.
  • Composition: 100% Post-Consumer Polyester
  • Durability: Wyzenbeek Durability Rating - 130,000 double rubs. What are we talking about? A Wyzenbeek number of just 30,000 is considered sufficient for "heavy duty commercial use." With a rating of 130,000, you could basicallly rub your jeans back and forth on Eco Polyester 130,000 times (or ten times a day for about 35 years), before it quits.
  • Care and cleaning: water-based cleaning agent or solvent: Depending on the stain, you can use a dry-cleaning solvent, the foam of a mild detergent, or upholstery shampoo.
Paloma Leather
  • This soft cow hide displays natural leather grain
  • Composition: predominantly cattle hides of central European origin
  • Durability: leather is not rated, but tends to be pretty tough if treated right
  • Care and cleaning: Paloma Leather will respond well to standard leather care and treatment
Choosing your chair height

The 265mm standard range is optimal for most people working at adjustable or standing height desks.

The 200mm lift adjusts from approximately 48.5 to 65.5 cm and the shorter 150mm lift provides a height adjustment from about 46.6 to 54.6 cm. We do not recommend the 150mm lift for most users and applications. However, if you have a lower fixed-height desk, or if you are under 165 cm you may prefer a lower lift. Don’t hesitate to reach out if you need help deciding what will work best for you. 

Capisco lift Height adjustment ¹ Recommended for
150mm lift 46.6 to 54.6 cm Anyone under 165 cm and lower fixed-height desks; not compatible with Footring 
200mm lift 48.5 to 65.5 cm Lower fixed-height desks or extended range Jarvis desks
265mm lift 57 to 81 cm Comes standard with all Capisco chairs

¹Please note that these measurements are not absolute and may vary slightly from chair to chair. Measurment is from the ground to top of seat.

Base color

The Capisco base is an aluminum frame that comes in 3 color options: black, silver, and white.

For your feet

The footring comes in black, white, or silver, to match your base. A great addition to any tall seat, we recommend the footring with the standard 265mm lift. It easily slips on to your already-assembled Capisco, and can also be removed without disassembling the chair, if you decide to go back.
