Vipp

The story of Vipp started in 1939 in the small Danish town Randers, when Holger Nielsen, a trained metal turner, received a request from his wife Marie to design a pedal bin for her newly opened hairdressing salon.

Marie is not the only one who is enthusiastic about the practical pedal bin, customers in her salon are also impressed. Soon, Holger Nielsen decides to produce the bin on a larger scale, which originally was intended for Marie only.

Over the years, the Vipp bin gained recognition as an international design classic – and in November 2009 it was accepted into the permanent architecture and design collection of The Museum of Modern Art in New York (MoMA).

Today, Vipp is a third generation family business run by Holger Nilsen’s daughter Jette Egelund together with her two children Sofie and Kasper Egelund. Still developing products according to the principles of company founder Holger Nielsen: Form follows function.  The Vipp collection holds many products for both kitchen and bathroom including a complete kitchen range made in the Vipp signature materials: Stainless steel and rubber.
