The widely popular North American blog Design Milk recently posted a fantastic article on the Tip Ton Chair, designed by Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby (2011) for Vitra. The feature is part of a series that Design Milk is publishing on their blog, exploring classic and modern design, and it covers everything from the intensive research and design development that went into perfecting the chair’s design (complete with sketches of concept typologies) to the actual manufacturing process.
The Tip Ton Chair is universally designed, offering two sitting positions that support proper posture for all functions. Occupants can sit normal in an upright position or sit forward in a slightly tilted position. You can read Design Milk’s article Tipping Point: The Tip Ton Chair for the full story.
