Tip Ton sets a new precedent in regard to dynamic sitting and it defines a new typology: the fully synthetic chair which can be tipped forward. Tip Ton can be leaned forward, where the chair gently stops in the forward position. This seat position, which has been exclusive to mechanical office chairs until now, tilts the hips and back upright, improving blood flow. Tip Ton is formed from a single mould with no mechanical components. This makes it practically indestructible and 100% recyclable. Tip Ton is the first piece designed in collaboration between Vitra and Barber Osgerby. Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby were both born in 1969 and studied architecture together at the Royal College of Art in London. Since that time, they have been working together on the interface between industrial design, furniture design and architecture.

Tip Ton wins

 from Los Altos Hills, CA– Verified Buyer

When choosing any piece of furniture I look and form and function. After looking at numerous chairs - narrowing it down to a final four - I chose the Tip Ton as desk chairs for my girls rooms. The Tip Ton chair won because of its simple yet clever ergonomic design. The girls have been using the chairs for a few weeks now and give it a thumbs up!

Wonderful styling

 from Cranford, NJ– Verified Buyer

I absolutely LOVE the look of this chair but going from an Eames Soft Padded chair to this was quite a change and significantly less comfortable. I decided to keep the Eames and am now using this to replace my keyboard bench, which for that purpose works well and looks infinitely cooler. ;)

Tip Ton is Tip Top

 from Phoenix, AZ– Verified Buyer

Great computer chair- comfortable and lightweight. I can easily move it to different locations in the house when using the laptop.
Found it in London in the Design Museum in an area for products winning the 2012 Design Awards.
Love the colors.
