About

// Version Française - French version //

We're on a mission to make better furniture: well-designed, well-made and built to last

We started in 2017 with the ambition to design the perfect chair for everyday life while having the least impact on the environment.

Please meet the SSD chair. A chair that is SIMPLE, STRONG and DURABLE.

What makes the SSD chair different?

  •  SIMPLE :  5 parts and assembles in less than 2 minutes with one screw
  •  STRONG : so strong you'll pass it on to the next generation
  •  DURABLE : long lasting, 100% made in Europe with sustainable high-quality materials

Not to mention the SSD chair is also elegant, comfortable, light and stackable up to 7 chairs.

The SSD chair assembles in less than 2 minutes with one screw only (and it is incredibly strong).

Good design resides in simplicity: the SSD chair is made of only 5 parts and 1 screw.

The "lock" part firmly holds together the legs and seat with one screw only.

SSD ships in flat pack. It takes at least 3 times less space than most chairs when packed, hencer lower CO2 emissions during storage and shipping.

From the apartment to the countryside house, the SSD chair goes with any interior and is also suited for professional and public spaces such as offices, cafés, restaurants or schools and museums.

The SSD chair HAD TO be super comfortable. And guess what? It is.

We took ergonomics very seriously by looking at every single detail. From the inclination of the legs to the height of the seat to the curves and width of the seat and backrest to the soft edges of the wood, we got everything covered.

Please, have a seat.

We carefully picked the best manufacturers in Europe and we only use the best materials: they are sustainable, easy-to-recycle and high-quality.


WOOD

Our wood only comes from sustainably-managed European forests (certified with the PEFC label). We partner with highly-skilled woodworkers so every SSD chair feels like a unique piece of design.

STEEL

Steel is the most recycled material on earth. Our tubing is nearly indestructible and is manufactured by some of the best European metalworkers.

Part of the SSD chair is manufactured near Chamonix in the French Alps in the factory created by Matthieu Bourgeaux (the founder of TIPTOE)'s grandfather. 

Henri Bourgeaux (TIPTOE founder's grandfather) started a metal manufacturing company near Chamonix in the French Alps where part of the SSD chair is manufactured today (photos taken in the 1950's).

RECYCLED PLASTIC

We use very little plastic (1% of the chair) and it's recycled plastic.


PAPER / PACKAGING

Our packaging is composed of at least 80% recycled paper.

More importantly, SSD ships in flat pack and takes at least 3 times less space than most chairs once packed. This means less CO2 emissions incurred during storage and shipping.

The SSD chair is available in 3 wood finishes (ashwood, oakwood and walnut) and 4 leg colours (Graphite Black, Cloudy White, Ash Pink and Sage Green).

!! At the end of the campaign, you will receive a survey to choose the colour of the legs and the wood finish of your SSD chair(s) !!


Oakwood

Oakwood has a moderate brown color and is a widely appreciated wood in furniture design.

With so much enthusiasm around the campaign, we decided to introduce limited editions (All Black and All White) if we reach certain thresholds.

We love the idea of incorporating upcycled materials (industrial waste for instance) in the making of our products. We know it's very ambitious but if we reach 3,000 chairs (~450,000€), we'll have enough resources to start working on an upcycled version of the SSD chair much earlier than expected.

We think we can make it. Do you?

We're a young team of passionate product designers and enthusiastic entrepreneurs based in Paris where TIPTOE was founded in 2015.

  • MARCH 26 - APRIL 26 : Kickstarter Campaign
  • MAY - JUNE : Production of the SSD chair
  • late JUNE - early JULY : Shipping of the chair

We're expecting deliveries to start towards the end of June but we're working very hard to speed up the process and ship your chairs as soon as possible.

Risks and challenges

Risks are very low. We have several years of experience in starting the production and shipping of new products. Our manufacturing partners are reliable and very experienced.

In addition, we have implemented continuous quality control during the manufacturing process to minimize the risks and delays. The SSD chair is ready for production!
