Tip Ton RE is more than just an all-plastic chair with a distinctive contemporary design. Thanks to an alternative forward-tilt position, it also provides ergonomic seating. Tip Ton RE is manufactured from recycled plastic, is 100% recyclable and can be stacked up to four chairs high.

The high-quality recycling material of Tip Ton RE stems from recycled household waste, particularly used packaging. Utilising this raw material instead of petroleum-based primary plastics generates 54% less climate-damaging emissions, with a significant reduction in primary energy consumption. To achieve the required stability and quality, the recycling material is mixed with a proportion of glass fibres. The dark grey hue of Tip Ton RE is the natural shade of the processed recycling material, which therefore exhibits very slight irregularities in colour.


Available in dark grey RE.
