Solid plastic chair with floor runners

Tip Ton from Vitra sets new standards in dynamic sitting and defines a new typology: the all-plastic chair that can be tilted forwards. Tip Ton is the first product from the collaboration between Vitra and BarberOsgerby.

The innovation of Tip Ton consists in the floor runners that rise by nine degrees at the front. From the normal position it tilts Tip Ton forward, then the chair locks softly in the forward position. This sitting position, previously reserved for mechanical office chairs, straightens the pelvis and spine and thus improves the circulation of the abdominal and back muscles.

Stackable monobloc designer chair

In 2010, ETH Zurich, one of the world's leading technical universities, conducted a study to investigate the health-promoting properties of a forward-leaning sitting position. The results show that this position increases muscle activity in the abdominal and back areas, which improves the body's oxygen supply - which has a positive effect on concentration, among other things.

Thanks to its striking appearance and high level of seating comfort, the Tip Ton from Vitra fits perfectly at the dining table, in the home office, in restaurants and in conference and meeting areas. Tip Ton is made of polypropylene and is manufactured from a single mould without mechanical components. This makes it extremely durable and 100% recyclable. Up to four Tip Ton chairs can be stacked on the floor.
With the Tip Ton RE, a recycled version is available.
