The HAG Futu is the first completely new chair to be introduced by HAG since 2002. The HAG Futu is a chair that’s simple, elegant and incredibly intelligent. Design-wise it is a breath of fresh air in a world full of “me-too” chairs. Behind the clean design there is a revolutionary interior. At the core of the chair, HAG debuts its new inBalance mechanism – a unique technology that allows you to adjust the tilt resistance with extreme ease according to individual needs and the latest ergonomic principles.
HAG Capisco Chair, designed by Peter Opsvik
Quite possibly the first thing that strikes you when you look at a HAG Capisco is it’s unconventional shape. It stands there with its arms stretched out, almost as if its welcoming you to come over and sit down. One of the many unique things about the Capisco is its saddle-shaped seat. The saddle seat was the result of Opsvik’s research into the working styles of active horsemen. The Capisco’s saddle seat and back allow the sitter unrivaled freedom to move into different, natural sitting positions that are not possible with any other chair. After you’ve tried sitting in the chair, you will understand HAG’s company philosophy – The best sitting position is always the next.
Recommended by chiropractors all around the world, the kneeling chair uses the “right angle” approach to seating. The forwardly-slanted seat and supportive knee cushion open the angle of the hips, which provides a more natural posture for the spinal column. The Balans chair’s shape forces the hips more forward, which naturally balances and stabilizes the user. This sitting position greatly reduces the strain on the lumbar portion of the back, improves breathing and increases flexibility.
Peter Opsvik also developed the Conventio chair for HAG. Opsvik felt that sitters should be just as comfortable on a chair without casters as on a chair with casters. The natural limitation of the four-legged chair was its inability to move with the user. The HAG Conventio is a light and simple chair that allows users to tilt backwards and forwards.

The HAG Credo chair was designed by legendary Norwegian Peter Opsvik and launched in 1984. A redesigned Credo debuted in 1992, and the chair has been updated in this century for a more contemporary look. The photo on the left shows the original chair. And the photo to the right shows the current version of the H04 Credo.
Legendary designer Peter Opsvik began development of the “one wheel” adjustment concept in the late 1980′s. He began his collaboration with HAG in 1995 to bring this concept to fruition. The knob that Opsvik and HAG developed simultaneously adjusts the seat depth, the seatback height and the tilt resistance.
Designed by Svein Asbjornsen, the HAG H09 is a beautiful engineering feat that marries advanced ergonomic theories, 21st century manufacturing capabilities and bold design.The chair’s unique “flip-down” arms and unparalleled lumbar support have separated it from its rivals within the high-end ergonomic seating market. Available in three distinct styles, the Classic, the Inspiration and the Excellence, the H09 series replaced HAG’s Signet series in 2002.
There is no perfect place or height for placing our feet when we are sitting. We prefer to have many options for foot placement.
