All-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 forward. Tip Ton is the first product resulting from the collaboration between Vitra and BarberOsgerby.
The innovation of Tip Ton consists in the floor skids rising nine degrees at the front. From the normal position 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 blood circulation to the abdominal and back muscles.
In 2010, ETH Zurich, one of the world's leading universities of technology, conducted a study on the health-promoting properties of a tilted sitting position. The results show that this position results in increased 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 the high level of seating comfort Tip Ton from Vitra excellent to the dining table, home office, restaurants, conference and meeting areas. Tip Ton is made of polypropylene and is produced from a single mould without mechanical components. It is therefore extremely durable and 100% recyclable. Up to four Tip Ton Chairs can also be stacked on the floor.
