Vipp, the Danish company best known for their pedal bins, now offers a 592 sqft (55 sqm) “shelter”. The prefab plug and play getaway allows you to escape urban chaos in an all-inclusive glass and steel sanctuary.
Loaded with Vipp products, the $ 585,000 structure illustrates the brand’s philosophy of creating long lasting, functional tools for kitchens, bathrooms, bedrooms – all in one spacious, livable, industrial object.
Everything you see in the shelter is Vipp. And it is all inclusive. It’s delivered fully equipped for a total design experience and an easy escape. While there may be no evident link between a pedal bin, a kitchen and a prefab shelter, the philosophy of one long lasting, functional tool per category is embodied in every item you see.
The simple steel grid structurally supports the two level space, where only the bathroom and bed loft is shielded from the main living space.
Within the transparent shell, nature is omnipresent yet provides shelter from weather conditions. The recurring element of steel and the interior fitted with Vipp products ranging from hooks to lamps to kitchen convince you that you have entered a Vipp product. Like all products in the interior this construction is a tool made to accomplish something – in this case to facilitate an escape to nature.
The shelter, designed by Vipp Chief Designer Morten Bo Jensen, is a manifestation of Vipp’s grand vision. The brand’s design philosophy is the rationale for jumping between traditionally unrelated categories.
