Tip Ton by Vitra sets new trends regarding dynamic seating and defines a new typology: the whole plastic chair which can be inclined forward. Tip Ton is the first product born out of mutual cooperation between Vitra and BarberOsgerby.
The innovation of Tip Ton consists of front floor-skids that incline forward at nine degrees. Tip Ton can incline forward from its normal position, and then the chair softly locks in the forward position. This seating position which hasn’t been used for mechanic chairs before, straightens the back and pelvis and thereby improves the circulation of body and back musculature.
The ETH Zurich, one of the world’s leading technical universities, investigated the health improving qualities of a forward sitting position in 2010. The results proved that body and back musculature are improved by that position, so that more oxygen runs through the lungs – among other advantages, this affects concentration positively.
Thanks to its distinctive exterior and the high seat comfort, Tip Ton from Vitra suits dining tables, home offices, restaurants, as well as conference and meeting areas. Tip Ton consists of polypropylene and is made out of one cast form without mechanic components. It is extremely long lasting and 100% recyclable. Up to four Tip Ton chairs can be stacked from the floor.
