Vitra Tip Ton Chair

by Vitra

Tip Ton has set a new benchmark for dynamic sitting and defined a new typology: the plastic chair with forward-tilt action. From the normal position, Tip Ton can be tilted a few degrees forward, where it then stays in place. The forward-tilt sitting position, until now the preserve of mechanical office chairs, straightens the pelvis and spine and thus improves circulation. Tip Ton is the first product to arise from the collaboration between Vitra, Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby.
