Hood Seating i29 Chair Build Tutorial


Trudy shows you how easy it is to build at home or the office!

Office Envy is passionate about workplace wellness and value for money.

That is why we are proud dealers of Hood Seating Ltd. Hood chairs combine unparalleled ergonomic features with excellent value for money (offering functions and mechanisms usually found on chairs three times the price).

We thought it would be useful to show you just how simple it is to build, even the most comprehensive chair by Hood!

The i29


The best selling,  i29 ergonomic chair offers outstanding comfort and capabilities. The sophisticated mechanisms, dynamic movement and amazing support help treat and prevent ailments.

Available with a mesh seat and fabric upholstered cushion on our online shop. We really recommend accessories such as the Executive headrest. Also available as a combination package for ease of purchase.

The fully patented floating lumbar support automatically moves with you when in dynamic mode, giving continuous lumbar support. The chair’s split back is designed to deliver independent upper back support as well as ensuring the patented lumbar system protects the lower regions – keeping the user’s pelvis rotated.

With three easy-to use pictorial controls on the right-hand side operating seat height, seat depth and advanced dynamic movement, the mechanism can also be locked at any angle. This works like a knee tilt mechanism with the first articulation at the underside of the thighs and the second point under your sitting bones (ischial tuberosities), delivering constant support in active mode and reducing the pressure on the underside of the user’s thighs.
The extendable direct tension control adjusts the resistance of the chair to comfortably balance users weighing from 8 to 23.5 stone – Certified to BS 5459.

Often favoured by individuals with back pain, aches and even long term injury. We had one customer who said it ‘saved my life’! After years of weekly chiropractor treatments, for a long-standing horse riding back trauma, she found relief in the i29.
