Tip Ton by Vitra sets new trends regarding dynamic seating and defines a new typology: the whole plastic chair which can be inclined to the front. Tip Ton is the first product out of the cooperation of Vitra and BarberOsgerby.
The innovation of Tip Ton consists in the nine degree rising front floor-skids. Tip Ton can incline to the front out of its normal position, and then the chair does softly lock in the forward position. This seating position which hasn’t been used for mechanic chairs before, straights back and pelvic and thereby improves the circulation of body and back musculature.
The ETH Zurich, one of the worldwide leading technical universities , investigated the health improving qualities of a forward sitting position in the year 2010. The results prove 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 only cast form without mechanic components. Thereby it is extremely long lasting and 100% recyclable. Up to four Tip Ton chairs can be stacked from the floor.Also in our blog:
