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 design of the iconic Vipp pedal bin since Holger Nielsen made the first bin in his shop for his wife in 1939. That’s because, as Nielsen says himself, “good design never goes out of fashion” and Vipp’s long, enduring run as one of the most recognizable brands and styles for the kitchen and bath is living proof.
