VITRA TIP TON CHAIR.
Design by Edward Barber en Jay Osgerby.
The Tip Ton chair from Vitra stands out because of the special basic structure with which the chair can be tilted a few degrees forward. According to research at ETH Zurich University in Switzerland, a slightly forward sitting position activates the back and abdominal muscles and helps the body to get in with more oxygen.
Designed by Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby, the Tip Ton chair is made of durable and recyclable plastic and does not contain any loose mechanical parts. The Tip Ton chair brings an interesting combination of function and design to the kitchen, office or elsewhere in the house.
Width: 50.9 cm. Depth: 55.5 cm. Height: 78.6 cm.
Seat height: 46.2 cm.
