A Closer Look - Assembly
Assembling the Ferrino was very easy and took all of 10 minutes. Most of the screws came attached to either the seat or the back of the chair, wherever they would be permanently installed. This is a nice touch and guarantees that all hardware will be shipped with chair. However, it threw me off a bit at first. I was looking in the box of hardware for all the screws and half of them were already installed.
Here is the base for the chair.
This is the heart of the comes back in the small box. Includes the wheels and the mechanism to raise and lower the chair as well as a couple plastic pieces that snap on either side of the back once the chair is assembled.
The Ferrino comes with both a neck pillow and a lumbar support pillow.
Here’s the base with all the wheels installed.
This is what the seat looks like pre-assembly.
As you can see, most of the screws come preinstalled on the bottom of the seat. I like this feature because there’s less of a chance of screws missing.
The hydraulic mechanism is attached using 4 screws that come preinstalled on the bottom of the chair.
The hardware includes an Allen wrench to use with the screws.
The actual hydraulic lift simply sits on the base of the chair.
You then place the chair with the hydraulic arm installed on top of the hydraulic lift. No screws or bolts required to keep them in place.
Once the base is on the chair, you can attach the back.
Once the chair is assembled these plastic covers go over the brackets that hold them together. This is simply to improve the aesthetic of the finished product.
