Tip Ton Chair Vitra white
Tip Ton Chair by Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby for Vitra in white.
“Tip Ton defines a whole new chair typology: the solid plastic chair with a forward-tilt action. Its name refers to the characteristic dual sitting postures – from a normal position, Tip Ton can be tipped forwards a few degrees, where the chair then stays in place. The forward-tilt position, until now the preserve of mechanical office chairs, straightens the pelvis and spine and thus improves circulation to the abdominal and back muscles.
In a 2010 study, ETH Zurich – one of the world’s leading universities of applied sciences – investigated the health benefits of a forward-leaning sitting position. The results confirmed increased muscle activity in the abdominal and back areas, which boosts the supply of oxygen to all parts of the body. Tip Ton makes all of this possible for the first time ever in the form of an economical and robust plastic chair, thereby opening up many new areas of use.” -text: Vitra
