It all started with a pedal waste bin in an entrepreneurial Danish woman’s salon. Her husband, Holger Nielsen, had crafted it out of necessity but it ended up being his finest work to date. Eager to please his beloved wife, he lavished an uncommon amount of inspiration into the functional little waste bin and started a revolution. Even nestled in the corner of the salon, the stylish waste bin with an ingenious pedal lid got noticed by Nielsen’s wife’s clientele who recommended them to their husbands. And thus, the Vipp waste bin was born.
Not much has changed about the original Vipp design since 1939. As Nielsen explains it, “Good design never goes out of fashion.” However, the spirit and sophistication of Vipp products have expanded into an inclusive line of kitchen and bath accessories for the home, office or in public. Vipp has added products slowly over the past 70 years. That’s because Vipp takes time to design, hone and perfect each product so that it is true to the integrity of Holger Nielsen’s original vision. See for yourself by perusing some of these best selling modern classics from Vipp.
