From a quality Danish trash bin to a 100% designed and furnished home.

The Vipp story begins in 1939, when Holger Nielsen designed and manufactured a foot-pedal garbage bin for his wife’s hair salon. Nielsen’s keen sense of aesthetics and quality were quickly recognized and requests for his useful Trash Bins began pouring in. Today, the company is run by his daughter, but little else has changed. Vipp still manufactures its pedal bins in Denmark and the materials are the same: stainless steel and rubber. “Good design never goes out of fashion,” said Nielsen and his Vipp Bins are no exception.

Vipp Shelter
In 2014 the designers at Vipp started the “Vipp Shelter” project. On June 22, 2015 we could have visited the Vipp factory in Copenhagen, heard from the designers, and taken a short trip into Sweden to see the actual Vipp Shelter.  For as little as $500,000 you can have your own weekend escape (with everything included).  This prefabricated, 592 square feet structure is designed to be placed in the natural setting of your choice with minimal effort. Plus, all the furniture, appliances, fixtures, lighting, tableware, towels, and even bed linens have already been picked out and will be waiting for you on your first arrival, which should happen in as little as six months after you place your order. With two levels of living space, including a second-floor bed loft and floor-to-ceiling windows, you might find yourself wanting to stay longer than you planned.

Mark and I are going to buy one and put it in our warehouse parking lot.
