From VIPP:
Our legacy of steel processing dating back to 1939 has been put to use in crafting the Vipp shelter; a prefabricated object designed down to last detail. A simple steel grid structurally supports the two level space, where only the bathroom and bed loft is shielded from the main living space. Large windows on both sides and in the ceiling lets nature take center stage. The shelter is a finished product inspired by large volume objects such as planes, ferries and submarines, where every single screw serves a purpose.

INTERIOR – ALL INCLUSIVE

The hooks, the ladder, kitchen, the daybed, the lamps, the shelves, the towels, the toilet brush…and the list continues.

Everything you see is Vipp. And it is all inclusive. The Vipp shelter is delivered fully equipped for a complete design experience and an easy escape. There is no evident link between a pedal bin, a kitchen, and a shelter, but enter the shelter and the philosophy of one, long-lasting, functional tool per category is embodied in every item you see.

NATURE IS OMNIPRESENT

A shelter in its original sense has connotations of basic living serving a merely functional purpose and attending to our primal need of having a roof over our head.

The starting point of the Vipp shelter is going back to basics; back to nature in a dense, compact space wrapped in the Vipp DNA. The landscape is purposely framed, turning it into the predominant element of the interior space. Each piece of interior and its dominant dark tones are carefully selected in order to keep focus on nature. The sliding window frames accentuate the sensation of living in nature by blurring the distinction between indoor and outdoor space.

SPECIFICATIONS

The simple steel grid structurally supports the two-level space, where only the bathroom and bed loft is shielded from the main living space comprising a kitchen and relaxing area.

Two people can stay comfortably in the shelter bed loft and the daybed on the lower level sleeps an additional guest.

DELIVERY & INSTALLATION

VIPP exploits the benefits of a pre-fabrication allowing the process to be easy, speedy and cost-efficient.

Designers and engineers have made the necessary deselections and defined the construction and material requirements. Production takes place in Frederiksværk, Denmark and is estimated to take approx. 5-6 months plus shipping and installation from the date of order confirmation. Delivery time varies according to location. Installation will take 3-5 days.

The Philosphy that links a shelter to a bin with chief designer MORTEN BO JENSEN. The driving ambition behind the Vipp shelter was the opportunity to match your kitchen and its accessories to your nature retreat. The result is a plug & play getaway, fully equipped. Morten Bo Jensen, Chief Designer at Vipp, is the creative force behind Vipp’s biggest product to date. Here, he unveils how and why Vipp’s design philosophy can translate into a product family ranging from a bin to a shelter. WHY A SHELTER? You can ask ‘why a shelter?’ But the answer is the same as when you ask ‘why a bin?’ It’s the urge to do something better and different than what already exists out there. Yes, a shelter is a different size of investment than a bin, but the basic philosophy is the same; developing functional tools based on 75 years of know-how within steel manufacturing, where functional requirements and material processing define the form – regardless of it’s a suction hook or a shelter. We felt that there was a market for a modern getaway, carefully thought out down to the very last detail, where the only choice left to the consumer would be where to put it. WHAT DOES THE TERM ‘SHELTER’ SIGNIFY FOR VIPP? A shelter in its original sense has connotations of basic living serving a merely functional purpose and attending to our primal need of having a roof over our head. The starting point of the Vipp shelter is going back to basics; back to nature with basic functions defining a dense, compact space wrapped in the Vipp DNA with a clear aesthetic coherence and a use of solid materials. In this way, the shelter becomes a tool that facilitates a nature escape. The objective was not to make a house or a mobile home. Vipp is rooted in the manufacturing of industrial objects, so the term shelter is a typology that allows us to define this hybrid as a spacious, functionally generic, livable object. WHAT WOULD HOLGER NIELSEN SAY? Initially, he would be wowed, then a little scared. Holger was a pedal bin manufacturer and a metal smith, so he would probably not quite understand why Vipp would make a shelter. As a true craftsman, he would head directly for the steel and comment on the construction, the materials and the form. HOW CAN YOU BUY THE SHELTER? In theory, since it’s a finished product, we would love to make the shelter avaible in our online shop. Imagine adding a shelter to your shopping basket. However, being a little bigger and more complex than a bin, we do require more information than just a delivery address. So first step is to get in touch with us.
