Our favorite desk chair among many favorites

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. For varying heights and desk heights, we also offer a 150mm and a 200mm HAG Pneumatic Lift.

Try Capisco for 90-days risk-free

The Capisco chair is the product that started this company. We have yet to find a chair that is as versatile as it is beautiful in its design. We believe in it so much, we offer a 90-day risk-free return policy on these chairs.

Choosing your chair height

The 265mm standard range is optimal for most people working at adjustable or standing height desks. For varying heights and desk heights, we also offer a 150mm and a 200mm HAG Gas Lift.

The 200mm lift adjusts from approximately 19.1" to  25.8" and the shorter 150mm lift provides a height adjustment from about 16.4" to  21.5". 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 5'4" you may prefer a lower lift. Don’t hesitate to reach out if you need help deciding what will work best for you.

Fabric durability

There are two major methods by which fabric durability is rated. They are called Wyzenbeek, the standard in the U.S., and Martindale, the international standard. Both methods use a special machine that involves rubbing the fabric against itself. The Wyzenbeek and the Martindale tests use slightly different rub patterns which results in different numbers that look similar, but the literature all says you can't convert between them.

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.

The chair that started it all

Long before we created the Jarvis Adjustable Standing Desk, founder/CEO David Kahl fell in love with this chair and started this company with the mission of selling one Capisco a day. His goal was to improve one person’s life a day with the chair that had completely transformed his. All these years later, Capisco remains the favorite among Fully employees and customers, and we have yet to find a chair that is more perfectly suited to our adjustable standing desks.
