Easy portability.   

One key to KINUU´s small pack size is the pluggable spreader bar made from 7075 aircraft grade aluminium, top quality used for mountain climbing and safety supplies. KINUU is compact system, not a bunch of parts. As a one-piece product it comes fully assembled. All components are permanently joined. Quick setup - no loss of parts.

The challenge

In 2015 we started this project with a clear vision: A full-size, comfortable and rugged hanging chair with minimum weight and pack size. Although we liked all this honeydew melon sized travel hammocks, in terms of sitting postures and comfort we preferred the frumpy hammock chairs. After several attemps trying to create a consistent working and affordable design, we realized why there was no "hanging wonder chair" on the market. Not a single technical detail of a classic hammock chair works with lightweight and contemporary materials. But now KINUU is ready to accompany you with a system of smart custom components making it as lightweight and compact as possible.

As a one-piece product KINUU comes fully assembled. All components are permanently joined.

Risks and challenges

KINUU is our third campaign here on Kickstarter. We have served over 2.000 satisfied Kickstarter-backers in 2016 (and over 4.000 customers until today), so we know what crowdfunding and a reliable fulfillment means. Nevertheless, technical or temporal delays may occur. Due to our trustworthy suppliers, logistics partners and our experience, we are convinced to fulfill the prerequisites to deliver KINUU to all our backers on schedule. If temporal delays occur in the course of the production, we will do our best to care for these in a timely manner without any loss of quality. As a backer you will be kept informed. We are delighted you decided to support us.
