Trash Can Couture. German Fashion Label Lever Dresses Up Vipp Bins.

The Danish design company Vipp, best known for the iconic Vipp pedal bin created in 1939, is presenting eight unique art bins dressed in couture made by German fashion label Lever Couture. Trash Can Couture, if you will.

We have created layouts with the Lever fashions by Ukaranian designer Lessja Verlingieri from her last few collections alongside the special Vipp pedal bins so you can see the design influence.

1400 meters of fabric processed by skillful hands in around 400 working hours transform Vipp pedal bins into amazing Trashion Bins.

“Of course it was a creative challenge to design couture for bins instead of people. But in the fun process I actually could not tell the difference, because after all, the Vipp pedal bins have a great shape and they are the stars among pedal bins”, Lessja Verlingieri.

The Vipp Trashion Bins are available for purchase from the Vipp Flagship Store in Copenhagen.

Price range:
$4500 – $6450 USD (3500 – 5000 Euro)
