  • The Hokki is constructed from friction-welded and highly scratch-resistant polypropylene that is both extremely lightweight and durable. The seat shell is crafted using a comfortable lightweight foam. All materials are sourced and manufactured with attention toward environmental impact and sustainability, and the Hokki is 100% recyclable.

  • Is the Hokki durable?
  • Yes, the Hokki is highly durable. The high-quality polypropylene from which the Hokki is manufactured is designed to stand up to considerable wear and tear while effectively resisting denting, scratching, or other damage.

  • Does it work on all flooring types?
  • Yes – the Hokki stool is designed to function on a wide range of flooring types, including hard wood, concrete, carpeting, epoxy, and other types of flooring. The slip-resistant soft base padding makes the Hokki an ideal choice for smooth, hard, and soft surfaces alike.

  • Will this scratch the flooring?
  • No. The Hokki stool is designed with high-quality base padding that effectively protects both the stool and your floors.

  • Will the Hokki stool slide on flooring?

  • How do I adjust the height on the Hokki+ height-adjustable model?
  • The adjustment mechanism can be released from all sides underneath the seat without having to feel around for it. Sitting is especially comfortable thanks to the depth suspension. For added safety, a certain amount of resistance is needed to activate the gas spring – at least 57 pounds for the small version and at least 83 pounds for the larger Hokki+.

  • Should I get the fixed height Hokki or the height-adjustable Hokki+?
