Solid plastic chair with floor skids
Tip Ton from Vitra sets new standards in dynamic sitting and defines a new typology: the all-plastic chair that can be tilted forward. Tip Ton is the first product from the collaboration between Vitra and BarberOsgerby.
Tip Ton's innovation lies in the floor skids that rise nine degrees at the front. From the normal position Tip Ton tilts 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 blood circulation to the abdominal and back muscles.
ETH Zurich, one of the world's leading technical universities, conducted a study in 2010 to investigate the health-promoting properties of a tilted sitting position. The results show that this position increases muscle activity in the abdominal and back area, which improves the oxygen supply to the body - which also has a positive effect on concentration.
Thanks to its striking appearance and high seating comfort, Tip Ton from Vitra fits perfectly into dining tables, home offices, restaurants, conference and meeting areas. Tip clay is made of polypropylene and is produced from a single mould without mechanical components. This makes it extremely durable and 100% recyclable. Up to four Tip Ton chairs can also be stacked on the floor.
