Vipp has made a plug and play getaway that allows you to escape urban chaos in a 55m2 all-inclusive nature retreat.

75 years of experience with steel processing is used to craft this 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. Within the transparent shell, nature is omnipresent yet with a physical blindage that provides shelter. The shelter is a finished product inspired by large volume objects such as planes, ferries and submarines, where every single screw serves a purpose.

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.

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.


Nature is omnipresent with sliding panorama windows


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.


We exploit 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.
