Miniatures Collection - Tip Ton_web_sub_hero

Tip Ton

Edward Barber & Jay Osgerby, 2011
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.

Miniatures Collection
For over two decades, the Vitra Design Museum has been making miniature replicas of milestones in furniture design from its collection. The Miniatures Collection encapsulates the entire history of industrial furniture design – moving from Historicism and Art Nouveau to the Bauhaus and New Objectivity, from Radical Design and Postmodernism all the way up to the present day. Exactly one sixth the size of the historical originals, the chairs are all true to scale and precisely recreate the smallest details of construction, material and colour. The high standard of authenticity even extends to the natural grain of the wood, the reproduction of screws and the elaborate handicraft techniques involved. This has made the miniatures into popular collector's items as well as ideal illustrative material for universities, design schools and architects.
