Parisian designer with a passion for sustainable furniture
"mission is to create better furniture." This sentence sums up TipToe's corporate philosophy. Thanks to a crowdfunding campaign, the Parisians Matthieu Bourgeaux and Vincent Quesada were able to bring TipToe to life in 2015 and have since pursued their mission with zeal and great support from their community.
TipToe specializes in durable, creative furniture made in Europe with meticulous attention to detail and reflecting an optimistic and creative modernity. It is particularly important to the designers Matthieu and Vincent to create furniture that several generations of owners would enjoy. Affordable prices and an individual (manufacturing) history also shape the character of each individual design piece.
Matthieu comes from a family of metal workers in Chamonix, where some of the TipToe items are still made in the family's own factory. He has a passion for design and interior design and the necessary experience to realize his creativity. As for Vincent, he spent many years abroad, in New York, Berlin, London and Shanghai, a source of inspiration for modern life.
Environmental protection through universality and minimalism
The TipToe designs have a high-quality finish and impress with their clear and minimalist lines. Each piece suits numerous interior design styles, whether private or public, and is designed in such a way that it can be used by its users in an individual way.
The idea of sustainability can be found at TipToe on every level: Timeless designs are designed to last, while 100% European suppliers guarantee quality materials. The products are assembled in French workshops, arrive flat-packed and are always perfectly processed."Without this quality standard we could not be satisfied with our work", say Matthew and Vincent.
TipToe is committed to ethical and high quality production from start to finish. The environmental impact is taken into account at every step, whether in processing the sustainable materials or in packaging with recycled paper.
TipToe only uses robust steel, recyclable aluminum, wood from FSC- or PEFC-certified forests, wood from destroyed buildings and recycled plastic for the production of its furniture. Holistic design, European production, logistics routes with low environmental impact, durable constructions and easy disposal round off TipToe's approach to sustainability.
Fresh color palette
In 2020 TipToe expanded its color palette to include five fresh, new colors that are inspired by Mediterranean nature: eucalyptus gray, coral pink, rosemary green, terracotta red and sunflower yellow. In combination with the natural wooden panels and light-colored plastic panels of the TipToe furniture, cheerful and modern contrasts result, which are sure to be eye-catching in the interior.
