Tip Ton Chairs by Edward Barber & Jay Osgerby, from the Miniatures Collection by Vitra
Design by Vitra Design Museum, 1820 - 2020
The most striking characteristic of Tip Ton, designed by Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby, is its forward-tilt function: the front edges of the runners are angled at nine degrees to allow the chair to tip slightly forward and remain in this position, thereby improving posture, blood circulation and concentration.
Originally developed for a school in the English town of Tipton, the Tip Ton chair has since become established as a universal seating option, thanks to its perfectly proportioned design.
Available as a set of 3 or as a single miniature in glacier blue.
