Tip Ton Chair by Barber Osgerby

• $315

I had the honor of sitting down with Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby this past spring at the Vitra store in NYC, and they walked me through the entire concept of the Tip Ton chair from start to finish. Then I wanted one.

The result of research that they did into student seating in British schools, Edward and Jay came up with this two position chair that allows for movement and therefore for more circulation, which, in turn, promotes concentration. Made of polypropylene and manufactured from a single mould without the use of mechanical components. It is extremely durable, up to 100% recyclable and comes in great colors. Suitable for use in both office and home.
