Due to the popularity of the Koken brand, there seems to be a demand for Koken barber chair parts. An extensive search on a widely recognized online auction site yielded a number of pieces that are being traded or offered for sale. Let’s take a peek at each one.
Please keep in mind that this is in no way a definitive resource on the subject. The goal is to have an overview of the parts and an understanding of how they connect with the whole.
Here’s a shortlist of Koken barber chair parts that exist on the marketplace at this time (from top to bottom):
- arm rest
- seat, seat base
- hydraulic lift mechanism
- calf rest, footrest
The headrest is a removable accessory that plays a huge role during massage sessions. An antique Koken headrest is usually made of cast iron with a brass bracket and leather upholstery. A chrome finish is usually preferred in restoration projects. This part also includes some kind of a push button control that allows for the removal of the headrest when activated.
The backrest is often matched with the headrest and the seat. The frame is likewise made of cast iron. The cushioning is covered with leather. This part can also accommodate a piece of metal called the towel bar that can be attached to the rear.
Arm rests occasionally provide accent to the barber chair. When the color matches the base and complements the upholstery, the chair incredibly stands out. The assembly is similar to the frames and are often chromed. Other variants come with ash trays attached.
The seat is also matched with the backrest. It has the same components as the others above it. However, the seat base serves an important role. It can be the location of the towel bar, and it’s often where the handle that allows the barber chair to recline is found. The handle also functions as a control mechanism to elevate or lower the chair.
Hydraulic Lift Mechanism
The system that conveniently allows the chair to go up or down is the hydraulic lift. It is a complex apparatus that has its own subparts. It contains the piston pump assembly, relief valve, filter, plunger, cylinder and the hydraulic cover that’s generally made of oak. This mechanism is a trademark of early Koken barber chairs.
Calf rest, Footrest
The calf rest is matched with the parts above it and is made of the same material as the other Koken barber chair parts. It has specific sizes that can only fit relevant units. The upholstery is also made of leather. The footrest, on the other hand seems to be the manufacturer’s favorite location to showcase its brand. The assembly is made up of cast iron frame with an intricate logo on the lower part and cushioning on the upper part.
Finally, there’s the base that firmly supports the chair on the ground. It is normally made of porcelain. A chrome metal ring serves as a covering for the line that connects the upper section and the bottom.
