Assembly & Features
Compared to other chairs I’ve put together the Kinn actually had all of its controls attached to the chair already. This will definitely save us some assembly time. The first thing you are going to want to do is attach the two pieces of the chair. You line up the back of the chair with the base and sort of slide it in. After many tries the holes were just not lining up for me.
I had to basically force one of the bolts into the hole and slowly tighten it to get the rest of the bolts to line up. The part of the assembly process was the hardest and would have definitely been easier with two people. With the four main bolts installed go ahead and install the remaining screws into the bottom of the chair to secure everything.
Moving on to the base of the chair. Take the caster wheels and carefully press them into the base frame of the chair, they go in pretty easily. Then flip the base over and slot the gas strut in. It should look like the photo below.
Finally take the top part of the chair place it on top of the base. Installation should only take around 15-20 minutes, although if it is just a single person you might have some trouble getting the two pieces of the chair to line up correctly.
We received the version of the chair with the black frame and naked TPE covering. There are different frame, TPE, and mesh options so it should be pretty easy to match this chair up with your setup. The naked TPE is pretty interesting as it is a mix of plastic and rubber. At first glance you might think this material is cheap, and honestly that is what I thought, but my mind was changed after using this chair for an extended period of time, more on that on the next page.
Not only is the back rest of the chair made of this TPE material, but also the base. The base does have coil springs under it, sort of like you would see in a mattress. These will help absorb weight and make for a comfortable sitting experience.
The back of the chair features a support system that looks much like a human spine. When you sit down it is designed to flex with your weight to give you support in all of the right places.
The wrist rests are made of plastic, but they are softer than other plastic wrist rests we’ve seen before (you can actually press into them a little bit). There is a little button under each wrist rest which allows you to adjust them up or down. You can also move them freely side-to-side.
Under the chair you will find the rest of your controls. If you are sitting in the chair on the right there is a lever as well as a crank dial. The lever allows you to adjust the height of the chair from 17 to 21 inches. The crank dial adjusts the tension for leaning back in the chair. Above these controls on the base of the chair is pull-out lever which adjusts the seat depth. Finally on the opposite side of the chair is another level to lock in the angle of the back rest if you don’t want it to move at all.
