    Caper Multipurpose Chair Features

    As with any Herman Miller product, the Caper suite was designed using research-backed ergonomics, a trend-setting style and other features created with the user in mind. From its contoured shape to its molded polypropylene seat, the chair is as comfortable as it is casual, fun and mobile.

    Polypropylene Back and Seat

    The Caper's back and seat are made out of flexible, perforated polypropylene, which allows air to flow to give your body better breathability. The material molds and flexes as you change positions to ensure all-day comfort.

    Contoured Support

    Designers thought through every curve and contour of the seat and back to create a chair that's healthy and ergonomic. The contoured back and waterfall seat edge support your upper body while allowing total circulation in your legs.

    Easy-to-Use Adjustments

    Caper's swivel, tilt and height can all be adjusted easily, using straightforward controls underneath the seat. The pneumatic height adjustment allows the sitter to find his or her ideal position for reaching the workspace comfortably.

    Fresh Aesthetic

    The Caper suite comes in an array of rich, vibrant hues or sophisticated neutrals. The lightweight and simple profile gives the chair a fresh and casual aesthetic that would complement any home or trendy office environment.

    FLEXNET Seat (Optional)

    The optional FLEXNET seat provides an extra source of comfort. Using suspension, the seat evenly distributes any user's weight to prevent uncomfortable pressure points.


    About the Designer: Jeff Weber

    Jeff Weber, of Studio Weber + Associates, designed the Caper suite with affordability and simplicity in mind. Weber's goal was to use "standard materials in novel ways" to create chairs that could accommodate a range of people and tasks - without forfeiting high-quality ergonomics that ensure comfort and support.
