Tip Ton Chair

Tip Ton Forward Tilting Chairs

Tip Ton Plastic Chair with forward tilt action by Vitra, received many awards including a Design Guild Mark in 2013. The innovative design of the skids on the Tip Ton rise at a nine-degree angle, this forward-tilt sitting position helps straighten the pelvis and spine and improves circulation to the abdominal and back muscles.

Before Tip Ton chairs this was catered for by the mechanical office chairs. Tip Ton is a striking piece of furniture that is light and easy to manage, and can be stacked to save some space when not in use. Tip Ton is ideal for use around a dining table or in a home office, it can also be used in restaurants, conference and meeting rooms or in educational environments.


A 2010 study by the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich (ETH) , one of the world’s leading universities of applied sciences, investigated the health-promoting attributes of a forward-leaning sitting position. The results confirm increased muscle activity in the abdominal and back areas, which improves oxygen supply to the body – and that in turn has a positive effect on concentration. Tip Ton makes all of this possible for the first time ever in the form of an economical and robust plastic chair, thereby opening up many new areas of use.


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.

Outdoor use

The colours earth grey, ice grey, glacier blue, basic dark and white are suitable for outdoor use.

Note: special additives retard the fading of colours due to UV radiation. However, if the chair is exposed to sunlight for prolonged periods, the colour may change over time. We recommend limited exposure to sunlight.
