Colour matters, new hues for Håg Capisco Puls

Scandinavian Business Seating Asia brings colour into focus in 2016 as the rolling out of fresh new shades for HÅG’s all-purpose Capisco Puls has been announced.


Think of Scandinavian design, and particular colours will almost certainly pop into your mind – the subtle, pale tones of the north as well as the bold hues of the region’s folk art. SB Seating has accentuates its heritage by embracing these palettes for some of its most popular seating products.

This company behind high-quality, Scandinavian-designed office chairs for private and public office environments has developed its own Trend Textiles Collection 2016–2017. This comes in two textile palettes comprising 40 colours in total. The ‘Sense’ collection is light and subdued, while ‘New Folk’ is rich and vivid.

The collection was developed with the recognition that colour really matters – it affects us daily and plays a crucial role in all our visual experiences. Colour can awaken our senses and affect our mood.

It can provide energy, joy and a sense of wellbeing – even encourage creativity. It can also influence how we interpret and respond to our surroundings. Colour, recognises Scandinavian Business Seating, can serve as an essential communicative tool.

With that in mind, the company’s first ‘new colour’ product release is fresh and light. Four new colours for this ever-popular Capisco Puls chair have just hit the market. The lightness of the new shades – sea green, clay, pink and petroleum – sit well with the emphasis on motion, and also pick up on the current in interior palettes toward delicate pastel hues. Capisco Puls (a design classic that has been around for over 30 years) was developed with an in-depth understanding and ergonomic philosophy based on an understanding of the human body and its need to be in motion

It is the only chair in the market that allows you to sit at all heights, which makes it extremely versatile and fit for all type of purposes and people. You will never have to sit still. This extraordinary chair from Norway is intended both for the home and work environment.

Expect to see the next colour update from Scandinavian Business Seating’s RBM portfolio towards 2017. The harmonisation and synchronisation of colours between the HÅG and RBM portfolios has been critical, with the choice of colours based on upcoming trends that were identified through workshops with Swedish design studio Form us With Love.
