The SSD chair: Simple, Strong and Durable

05 March 2019

The SSD chair: Simple, Strong and Durable

Our most ambitious project since launch

The SSD chair came from the ambition to design the perfect chair for everyday life while having the least impact on the environment at every stage of its life cycle. We think the world doesn’t need more furniture. It needs better furniture: well-designed, well-made and built to last.

 

After 2 years of passionate work, we’re very proud in introduce the SSD chair. We launched a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter on March 26 for a 30-day campaign. Thanks to more than 500 people, we can finance our first batch and buy industrial tooling. The SSD chair will be available soon!

SSD chair : Simple, Strong and Durable

SSD refers to the core qualities of our chair : SIMPLE, STRONG and DURABLE.

The SSD chair assembles in 2 minutes with only 1 screw. It’s 100% made in Europe with sustainable high-quality materials.

Our chair is also comfortable, stackable, beautiful and light.

Why the SSD chair?

Every year, 20 million tons of furniture end up in landfills in Europe and in the US, including way too many chairs.

These chairs are manufactured in bad conditions with low-quality materials. At TIPTOE, we think each chair should be long-lasting and made with high-quality sustainable materials.

This is why we designed the SSD chair. A chair that is Simple, Strong and Durable.

The SSD chair is SIMPLE

It is composed of only 5 essential parts:

  • 2 powder-coated legs
  • 1 seat and 1 backrest made of high-quality wood
  • 1 “lock” and its screw

The SSD chair assembles in 2 minutes with only 1 screw.

The SSD chair is STRONG

SSD was designed to withstand years of intensive use:

  • Our steel tubing is nearly indestructible
  • We picked our wood from the best suppliers in Europe
  • We worked with engineers specialized in aerospace and automotive during the entire development phase

The SSD chair is DURABLE

We designed to the SSD chair to have the least impact at each stage of its life cycle

  • Steel is the most recycled material on earth
  • Our wood only comes from sustainably-managed forests (certified with the PEFC label)
  • 100% made in Europe with long-lasting materials
  • Ships in flat pack (takes at least 3 times less space than most chairs when packed), hence lower CO2 emissions during storage and shipping
  • Our packaging is made of 80% recycled paper

The SSD chair is 80.5 cm / 31.7 inches high, 51.6cm / 20.3cm wide and its seat has a diameter of 41.8cm / 16.5 inches.

Kickstarter : Why a crowdfunding campaign?

Kickstarter is the largest crowdfunding website on the internet. It allows young and ambitious projects to emerge thanks to the support of a passionate community of contributors. The SSD chair is our biggest project since launch.

In order to buy industrial tooling and finance our first production, we launched a 30-day pre-order campaign on Kickstarter from March 26 to April 26.

Since the very beginning, TIPTOE has been pushed forward by a ever enthusiastic and passionate community. We’re very excited to start this new adventure with you!
