Design by Edward Barber & Jay Osgerby, 2011.
Tip Ton sets a new precedent in dynamic sitting, defining an entirely new class of chair: the fully synthetic chair which can be tipped forward. Lean Tip Ton forward, and the chair gently stops in its forward position. This seat position, which has been exclusive to mechanical office chairs until now, tilts the hips and back upright, improving blood flow. And it allows a level of mobility not seen in this type of chair before.
Tip Ton is formed from a single mold with no mechanical components. This makes it practically indestructible and 100% recyclable. Stackable to four chairs high, and offered in eight colors.
Select Cactus, Basic Dark, Poppy Red, Ice Grey, White, Mustard, Earth Grey or Glacier Blue.
Tip Ton Chairs are stackable to 4 high.
Material(s): 100% polypropylene, polyamide glides
Dimensions: 31" H x 20" W x 21.75" D x 18.5" SH
Awesome functionality. Best chair to promote lower back health.

The Tip Ton chair is well worth the cost to promote lower-back health. I used to use a Gaiam ball in my home office but the Tip Ton is way better to promote proper posture while in an office chair. Just lean forward and you can feel your lower spine move into a more healthy alignment. When you need a break, just lean back and take a rest for a few minutes. On top of that, the chair is modern and looks great in almost any setting. I highly recommend the Tip Ton chair!

This chair is durable, comfortable and very stylish. Very happy with my purchase.
Vitra has manufactured furniture designs by Charles & Ray Eames and George Nelson since 1957. Building on this foundation, Vitra has developed a wide range of furnishings for the office, for the home and for public spaces in collaboration with progressive designers. Yet Vitra is more than just a design-oriented manufacturing company. The name also stands for the Vitra Design Museum, for a collection of modern furniture and its accompanying archive, for workshops and publications on topics of design, and for an architectural concept that unites buildings by Frank Gehry, Nicholas Grimshaw, Zaha Hadid, Tadao Ando, Alvaro Siza, Herzog & de Meuron and SANAA at the Vitra Headquarters in Birsfelden (Switzerland) and on the Vitra Campus in Weil am Rhein (Germany).
Product longevity is central to Vitra's contribution to sustainable development; short-lived styling is avoided at all costs. This can be seen most clearly in the classical pieces of furniture that have been used for decades, had several owners and have then even ended up as a part of a collection. For Vitra, the manufacture of sustainable products means intense pre-production development, where the highest-grade materials are selected and tests are carried out that simulate 15 years of use. In order to enforce and monitor sustainable development in all business activities of the company, a work group was formed in 1986 by the name of 'Vitra and the Environment'. Because of this, Vitra can proudly claim that it has been dedicated to sustainability for nearly a quarter of a century.View other products from Vitra
