1. How much customization do you require?
Some users like to fine-tune the chair to exactly how they want their chair to support their body, whereas others prefer a chair that automatically caters to the way they sit. For that, KC01 and KC02 caters to these needs. Although all Knead chairs provide core adjustments, KC01 offers a higher degree of customization, with its quick set tilt and manual tension adjustment. On the other hand, KC02 optimizes for automation and simple settings, with it's automatic weight activated mechanism, and the air lumbar system. If you're buying for the office, you may also want to consider whether you have a hot-desking arrangement or dedicated work stations. In hot-desking setups, users may prefer a chair that provide simple, automatic adjustments in order to get comfortable quickly.
