by Aurélien Barbry

“What hides inside a Vipp bin? My idea is to visualize what the eye discovers, if you look through Vipp products with the imaginary universe of x-rays and its particular aesthetic. Show me your trash and I will tell you who you are” – Aurélien Barbry

Om Vipp

Historien om Vipp tager sin begyndelse i 1939, hvor den danske metaldrejer Holger Nielsen skaber den første Vipp spand til sin kones frisørsalon. I dag har spanden vundet anerkendelse som et internationalt designikon og er bl.a. optaget i arkitektur- og designkollektionen på The Museum of Modern Art i New York. Firmaet Vipp har også udviklet sig og tilbyder nu en stærk kollektion af produkter til badeværelset og køkkenet, som sælges i førende designforretninger i mere end 20 lande. Vipp har åbnet sin første Concept Store i hjertet af København, hvorfra de helt nye køkken- og badmoduler sælges. Hovedkontoret er et nyrenoveret pakhus på Islands Brygge i København, som danner rammen for teamet på ca. 35 engagerede medarbejdere.

A pop-up charity cafe

Support and take home the Vipp cup

Vipp is opening a pop-up coffee shop in central Copenhagen to raise money for Doctors Without Borders - and you get to keep the Vipp cup.

Now you can enjoy a spot in the sun while supporting Doctors Without Borders (MSF) in Vipp’s newly opened pop-up café 'A Cup For Charity' at Ny Østergade 34.

The usual Caesar salad and café burger have been replaced by a much simpler concept; In 'A Cup For Charity' you can only get a cup of tea or coffee and a cake delivered from Risteriet, Løv Tea and Strangas Dessert Boutique – the pack costs DKK 100. All proceeds go to Doctors Without Borders and as thanks for your support, you get to keep the Vipp cup.

Vipp’s pop-up café, 'A Cup For Charity' opens today, opening hours Monday to Friday 11.00 am - 6.00 pm (Saturdays 11.00 am - 4.00 pm), until September.

Vipp'ing love my bin
by Gerard McGuickin aka Mr. Walnut Grey

Vipp celebrates its 75th anniversary this year. What an incredible tale this enduring Danish design establishment has to tell. The Vipp that we see today emerged from a practical rubbish bin that was built in 1939 by its founder, Holger Nielsen, for his wife Marie’s hair salon.

In my considered opinion, Vipp makes the world’s greatest bins. All too often, bins, clearly designed to contain rubbish, are treated in the same manner. The Vipp bin is different. Firstly, it’s a design classic. Secondly, whilst its functional objective is to house rubbish, its physical manifestation is a beautiful one. Thirdly, it is a common occurrence that bins must be hidden from view, concealed in cupboards and under kitchen sinks. With a Vipp bin, there is a patent yearning to showcase its form, to embrace it as part of the make-up of a given space - the kitchen, bathroom, hallway, storeroom et cetera. The Vipp bin is as much an object of desire as many of its classic design contemporaries.

I received my first Vipp bins in 2005; they were a housewarming present from my parents. I can still remember the excitement in choosing the bins - a Vipp 16 and two Vipp 13s - and the anguish of having to wait several weeks for their arrival. Nevertheless, they were worth waiting for and nine years later continue to store my rubbish with elegant grace. My most recent Vipp bin (an addition, not a replacement), was a Vipp 15 in Copenhagen Green. A firm believer that a well chosen colour accent adds a level of urbanity to a space, my Vipp 15 is wholly congruent with the grey wall against which it sits in my living area.

Good design truly is aesthetic (as espoused by acclaimed industrial designer Dieter Rams). The Vipp bin’s aesthetic quality is, I believe, integral to the way in which it impacts positively upon my person and well-being. My Vipp bins are part of my everyday reality and I often feel a sense of satisfaction in using them. When design is innovative, easy to understand, useful, long-lasting and a part of the person’s own sense of self-expression, then it will enhance the way in which we live.

As a family company, I value that Vipp works to ensure there is a tangible link between today’s Vipp products and its history. It was from Holger Nielsen’s early utilitarian and functional concept that Vipp’s DNA was born. Holger’s classic bin design is a part of the fabric of Vipp; his legacy is embraced by the company and instilled in everything it produces. Kasper Egelund, Vipp’s CEO and Holger’s grandson, expresses this legacy as one “of good craftsmanship, quality materials and honest design.”

I was excited to visit Vipp’s Copenhagen flagship store in June last year as part of a select European bloggers collective. During that visit, I had the pleasure of hearing Sofie Egelund, Head of Communication and Holger Nielsen’s granddaughter, tell the story of Vipp in her words. Listening to Sofie’s reflections on her grandfather made everything I knew about Vipp feel all the more genuine and tangible, adding yet more kudos to my beloved Vipp bins.

Happy 75 years Vipp! x

Merci-Merci

Une boutique très chic!

Soon, the new limited edition Vipp bin will be presented in the Parisian concept store Merci. We zoom in on this très chic boutique…

Merci is a magical mecca that brings together the best of fashion, design and objects for the home. It opened its doors in 2009 in the heart of the historic district of Haut-Marais in Paris’ 3rd arrondissement. Marie-France and Bernard Cohen, founders of Bonpoint, the children’s fashion brand, felt the urge to create a space in Paris merging fashion and interior.

Unlike most commercial shops, Merci’s founders decided that the fruit of this investment would be donated to a fund dedicated to educational projects and development in the south-west of Madagascar.

Marie France and Bernard Cohen wanted to say ‘MERCI’ to talent, creators and customers who makes the Merci project possible.

Merci has become a platform for both young talented creators and established brands, with new exhibition every three weeks. From September 5th, Merci celebrates the MATIERES PREMIERES exhibition during the Paris Design Week. Back to basics, « material design » stands for an interest for natural and traditional material. Vipp is very proud to be featured in this exhibition with our old icon dipped in Merci’s peculiar graphic universe created by the studio be-pôles. So we say Merci Merci.

Merci says 'Thank You'

with a Vipp Limited Edition

With their talent for playing with words and typography, the Parisian concept store Merci pays tribute to the almost 75-year old Vipp bin by launching a special limited edition.

During Paris Design Week 2013, starting September 5th, the Vipp bin will be dipped in Merci’s peculiar graphic universe that covers the store’s many gadgets and famous paper bag created by its graphic design studio be-pôles. Wrapped in a text describing the object itself, Merci celebrates this old icon that, despite its upcoming 75 year anniversary, has not aged a day.

Since the Vipp bin was created in 1939 by Danish craftsman, Holger Nielsen, for his wife’s hairdressing salon, only the shape of the lid has been modified. But this enduring object, renowned worldwide as a design classic, was never ‘designed’ in the strict traditional sense but got its visual expression in response to a series of functional criteria: a pedal to free the hands; a large foot for stability; a domed steel lid for easy cleaning; ears on the side of the body for easy transportation; and use of solid materials to make it last a lifetime.

Subject to Merci’s graphic system, this design philosophy has been wrapped around two sizes of Vipp pedal bins kicking off Paris Design Week at Merci.

You can also get hold of one of the Merci bins in the Vipp Flagship Store in Copenhagen or online at vipp.com from September 5th.

Price: 14 liter, 300 euro / 2300 DKK and 18 liter, 350 euro / 2700 DKK

Vipp x Colette x Darcel

Bin+brush set by Darcel

Parisian retail darling colette and Danish design manufacturer Vipp once again join forces by inviting regular conspirator Craig Redman and his monocled, egg-shaped alter-ego Darcel to reinterpret a series of classic Vipp products.

The Australian-born designer Craig Redman's cynical and hilarious one-eyed creature lives online at ‘Darcel Disappoints’ in a chronicle of the ups and downs of everyday NYC. Now, Darcel is unfolding his colorful cartoonish creativity onto two of Vipp’s iconic products; the Vipp pedal bin created in 1939 and its companion, the toilet brush.

"I think the juxtaposition between Darcel's sense of humor, colette's taste and vibrancy, and Vipp's high quality products make for a great combo. And I really need a new toilet brush." - Craig Redman

The 4 liter Vipp pedal bin and toilet brush are available in a limited edition with a splash of Darcel’s cartoonish universe exclusively in colette and at colette.fr from June.

3 Michelin Star Ingredients

unfold on the Vipp pedal bin

With his collection of Vipp pedal bins, presented in his kitchen annex l‘Arrière Cuisine’ hidden behind his 3 Michelin star restaurant l’Arpège in Paris, world-renowned chef Alain Passard is mixing his passion for colourful cuisine and quality kitchen tools.

Originally, the Danish design company Vipp created the pedal bin for the professional market, where doctors, hairdressers and chefs found it indispensable due to its sturdy physique and practical pedal. Since 1939, the Vipp bin has made its entry into restaurants worldwide; and is today entering the Arrière-Cuisine curated by Alain Passard.

“I want to surround myself with functional products that help me focus on my métier. When Vipp invited me to do a collection of their bins, the answer was evidently yes; I wanted to embellish this classic and discreteobject with my collages”, explains Alain Passard.

The collages realized by Alain Passard are visual translations of his passion for cooking: a play of coloursand textures found on paper as well as on his plates. The artworks reflect the influence of vegetables in his kitchen and the importance of the eye in the creation of a recipe. Together with his book ‘Recette et Collages’ recently published in English (‘The art of cooking with vegetables), the collaboration with Vipp is a testimony to his artistic approach to cooking combined with his predilection for high-quality kitchen tools.

From his book of 48 illustrated recipes, the chef has selected 10 to decorate Vipp’s more than 70-year old bin transformed to a limited edition collection of 40 numbered copies sold exclusively in the Arrière-Cuisineof l’Arpège and in the Vipp Flagships Store in Copenhagen.

The limited edition bins are available from May 15 in three sizes: 15, 18, and 30 liters with 10 different motives sold together with Alain Passard’s book ‘Recipes & Collages’ starting from 300 euro.
