Vitra’s Tip Ton chair catches the eye with its special base structure that allows the chair to be tilted a few degrees forward. According to the research conducted at the ETH Zürich University in Switzerland, a slightly forward-reaching seating pose actives back and stomach muscles and thus helps the body to get more oxygen. Designed by Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby, the Tip Ton chair is made of durable and recyclable plastic, and it doesn’t have any loose mechanical parts. Tip Ton brings an interesting combination of function and form to the office, kitchen or elsewhere in the house.

Edward Barber (b. 1969) and Jay Osgerby (b. 1969) are British designers and founders of the London-based studio Barber & Osgerby, established in 1996. Barber and Osgerby studied architecture and interior design at London’s Royal College of Art and since that, they have collaborated in the fields of industrial design, furniture design and architecture. Their clean, streamlined designs are often inspired by folding and shaping of sheet material, and a fine example of their innovative style is the Tip Ton chair published by Vitra.View all products
