Vitra is a Swiss company dedicated to improving the quality of homes, offices and public spaces through the power of design.

Our products and concepts are developed in an intensive design process, which brings together our engineering excellence with the creative genius of leading international designers. It is our goal to create interiors, furniture and accessories that are functional and inspiring. Longevity of materials, construction and aesthetics is our leading principle, as demonstrated by our Classics – many in continuous production since the 1950s.

Tip Ton defines a whole new chair typology: the solid plastic chair with forward-tilt action. Its name refers to the two types of sitting experiences that characterise the chair – from a normal position, Tip Ton can be tilted a few degrees forward where it then stays in place. The innovation behind this seemingly simple feature lies in the skids, which rise at a nine-degree angle. The forward-tilt sitting position, until now the preserve of mechanical office chairs, straightens the pelvis and spine and thus improves circulation to the abdominal and back muscles. Thanks to its striking appearance, Tip Ton is an outstanding dining table or home-office solution; it is also ideal for use in restaurants, conference and meeting spaces and educational institutions.

Tip Ton is made of polypropylene and is manufactured from a single mould without the use of mechanical components. This makes it extremely durable and up to 100% recyclable. Tip Ton is stackable up to four chairs high and comes in eight different colours. Select Cactus, Basic Dark, Poppy Red, Ice Grey, Stone White, Mustard, Earth Grey or Glacier Blue.
