A bin full of memories

The story of a 'Vipp'

In 1973 Gunvor Helberg took over a dental clinic including a Vipp bin from the 1930s. Today her daughter is the third the owner of the Vipp vintage pedal bin.

We often experience people having a special attachment to the old classic Vipp bin. We meet them when their bin needs a new pedal or when they simply stop by to tell us their story of when and how they got their first bin. It still amazes us how these people value the old Vipp tool. Furthermore, it proves that Holger Nielsen did something right, because the bins still open 75 years later.

However, even more exciting is it when we hear about a 'simple' bin that has been passed on from one generation to another. Gunvor Helberg's story is one of these. Her bin is now in the hands of the third generation and has become a symbol of good times and great memories.

"In 1973, I took over the dental clinic including funiture and a Vipp bin from a Mrs. Thomsen who estabilshed the clinic in the 30s. I renovated the clinic, but kept the Vipp bin because it represented a bygone era and was beautiful. I have always liked this bin. And as the years went by, I found out that the bin was something very special. Today, when I see the bin at my daughter's place it reminds me of my clinc and great work life."

Stop by the Vipp Flagship Store to see the old bins and get their stories.

Did you know that you can eat your way to a happier body? Nutritionist, author and personal trainer, Louise Bruun, occupies the Vipp kitchen and presents the concept of Superfood with a tasting of selected favorites.

When designing a new Vipp product we consider it as a tool that aims to create a great experience in everyday life. Therefore, we cannot help being inspired by other tools aiming for the same goal. Superfood is a tool supporting a healthy lifestyle, and we look forward to share our enthusiasm with you on August 21st at the Vipp Flagship Store in Copenhagen.

Nutritional therapist Louise Bruun will give us insight into the world of superfoods – which are much more than a variety of tasty flavors. Nutrition can heal us and make us happy, strong and healthy - all based on a good tool for your body – Superfood!

Louise Bruun appeared in the Danish tv show "a cure that works" (orig: En kur der dur), she has published several books on healthy nutrition, she gives lectures on the same topic, organizes retreats, workshops, conferences and much more.

You will also meet Vipp Chief Designer, Morten Bo Jensen, who talks about the Vipp design philosophy and explains how both a hook and a kitchen fit into the Vipp toolbox. And finally he will unveil upcoming Vipp products to be launched later this year.

It all happens Thursday, August 21st at 18.00-20.00 in the Vipp Flagship Store in Copenhagen.

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 Vintage Bins Wanted

for 75th anniversary exhibition

This year the Vipp bin celebrates its 75th anniversary. To mark this milestone we are now searching for the very first bins that left the factory back in 1939.

They are out there somewhere, these old bins, and many of them are still in use at clinics, laboratories, kinder gardens and in private homes. From time to time the Vipp store in Copenhagen receives old bins in need of a new pedal or rubber parts to be fully functional for future decades. “The very first bins are easily recognized by their wavy and polished chrome lid and a golden logo in cursive letters in my father’s hand writing”, says Jette Egelund, 2nd generation in Vipp.

We hope to collect as many old bins as possible for a historical exhibition to be held at the Vipp Flagship Store in Copenhagen later this year.

So if you have one of these old bins in your possession and would like to share your story, then please get in touch with us to make your bin available for this exhibition.

If you want to share your bin story, please get in touch with Michael at

How to make a cookie-bin

The Vipp kitchen was the backdrop for our Christmas Cookie Factory, where we transformed our old bin into a series of colourful cookies.

Vipp's product development team got quite an unusual task, when they were asked to develop a steel cake tin shaped like the Vipp bin. The result was an exact copy of the outer shape of pedal bin laser cut in 3 mm stainless steel and only 1 mm thick.

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.

A century ago

Happy 100th birthday, Little Mermaid

A century ago Edvard Eriksen created the famous statue of H.C. Andersen's "The Little Mermaid". Today Vipp celebrates her 100th birthday.

In the year of 1837 H.C. Andersen wrote what would become one of the world’s most famous fairytales – The Little Mermaid. 76 years later the Danish-Icelandic sculptor, Edward Eriksen, finished his statue carrying the same name as the story’s title. The little mermaid was a tribute to the legacy H.C. Andersen and has later become an iconic symbol of Denmark.

Today, exactly 100 years later, Vipp celebrates the work of Eriksen and pays tribute to the fairytale by bringing our mermaid blues collection back in the spotlight.

Happy birthday, little mermaid

Making a good first impression with


It was an easy choice finding the chef to take the scene in our live styling & cooking event. Given his extensive experience as chef, having followed his delicious blog and reading his food articles in some of the best food & cooking magazines in Denmark, Mikkel Karstad was an obvious choice to take charge in the Vipp kitchen during the workshop.

Since 1995 Mikkel Karstad has explored the culinary world as chef in Michelin awarded restaurants including La Tante Claire in London, Era Ora in Copenhagen and as gastronomic advisor to Danish star chef Claus Meyer and in recent years as food writer and stylist. He has learned that in cooking there is more than whats meet the eye but that the eye nevertheless plays a key role in the meeting with food.

"My food genre is inspired by different cuisines, but with deep roots in the Nordic, the raw materials from the Nordic countries and seasons.
Through your eyes you get the first contact of a course, so styling of food and the way in which it is served is of extreme importance – if you get a good first impression, you also want to taste the food", Mikkel explains.

The key styling priciple for the workshop was to show all ingredients contained in each recipe. Giving space and air to each ingredient makes the course more approachable and understandable.

Live styling & Cooking Event

Two days ago, the Vipp flagship store in Copenhagen was turned into a culinary workshop where cooking and styling were the main ingredients. 40 journalists and bloggers from Denmark and abroad were invited to explore all of their senses during a Nordic autumn lunch prepared, cooked and styled by chef Mikkel Karstad.

Since 1995 Mikkel Karstad has explored the culinary world as chef in La Tante Claire in London, 3 stars in Guide Michelin, as chef at restaurant Era Ora, 1 star in Guide Michelin, as gastronomic advisor to Claus Meyer and in recent years as food writer and stylist. For two hours Mikkel delighted us with culinary treats from the Nordic cuisine including Danish squid and pumpkin soup, oysters, tartare on rye bread, salt baked sellery with mushrooms and finally baked plums with vanilla icecream and soft caramel. After each serving he presented his take on how to style the recipe and invited the guests to do the same in in our pop-up photo studio run photographer Anders Hviid.

Anders Hviid's experience within the food & living category has taken him from rural Italy to Danish Noma. We also invited all guests to capture the styling with own phones.

Here are some of our snapshots from a very inspiring day with the perfect setting of a rainy fall day in Copenhagen.

The Dotted Vipp Bin

by Damien Hirst

The internationally renowned artist Damien Hirst has created a limited edition of the Vipp bin exclusively for Astrup Fearnley Museet.

When Danish craftsman Holger Nielsen created the pedal bin in 1939 it was only intended for his wife’s hairdressing salon. Since then, the small waste bin has been on quite a journey and is now entering the colourful world of the internationally renowned artist Damien Hirst. An exclusive and limited collection will be presented at the opening of Astrup Fearnley Museet in Oslo on the 29th of September. The museum is designed by the architect Renzo Piano and will house some of today’s most important contemporary artists.

Damien Hirst is one of today’s most successful living artist and throughout his career he has won several prestigious prizes incl. the Turner Prize. Damien Hirst became famous for challenging the art world up through the 80’s and 90’s and his controversial works has been discussed by professionals all over the world. One of Damien Hirst’s most discussed pieces, is the “spot painting”, which is created by rows of randomly coloured circles. This is the also the piece of art, which has inspired Damien Hirst in the interpretation of the Vipp bin.

“I’ve always loved colour, playing with colour, moving colours around. Designing a Vipp bin using spots makes the Vipp bin joyful“– Damien Hirst.

A limited number of bins will be sold exclusively from the Astrup Fearnley Museet. Price 3400NOK

A vintage Vipp is ‘As Good as New’

Limited Edition collection for SPRMRKT

A limited edition of customized vintage Vipp pedal bins will be available in the ‘As Good As New’ pop-up shop in one of Amsterdam’s coolest fashion- and vintage stores SPRMRKT. This collaboration is kick starting Dutch Design Week with brand new second hand design.

Under the motto ‘reduce, reuse, recycle’, Vipp collaborated with the new Dutch furniture brand As Good As New to create a pop-up store in SPRMRKT displaying a recycled home where you find the limited edition series of vintage Vipp bins together with a selection of vintage sofas, chairs and lamps all turned ‘As Good As New’ with a environmentally friendly, grey powder coating. Behind the 'As Good As New' furniture concept is Dutch agency Gummo in collaboration with Krimpex Coating Systems and I29 Interior Architects who has realized the installation of the shop in SPRMRKT.

"Everything  in SPRMRKT’s recycled home is covered in a mat, dark grey nuance, which gives the little shop a highly conceptual look with arty vintage furniture mixing in perfectly in SPRMRKT’s high-fashion universe. " - Nelleke Strijkers, owner of SPRMRKT.

The Vipp pedal bin is an object dating back to 1939 when it was created for a hairdressing salon. It soon became an indispensable object in Danish clinics due to its practical pedal-operated function, its ears for easy transport and wide foot granting it stability. “Today, my father’s bin has conquered the heart of design enthusiasts worldwide and this collaboration with SPRMRKT is a way of showing that even a vintage bin, perhaps dating back to the 60’s, can be ‘as good as new’ due to its robust design in solid materials”, says Jette Egelund, owner of Vipp and daughter of Holger Nielsen, creator of the Vipp bin.

The ‘As Good As New’ Vipp limited edition starts from 250 eur. Sold exclusively in SPRMRKT from September 20th

When Danish craftsman Holger Nielsen created the pedal bin in 1939 it was only intended for his wife’s haidressing salon.

With a black and white tattoo on a multicoloured background, Jean-Luc Moerman is giving a 70-year old design object a highly contemporary twist.  The 4 & 30 liter Vipp bin are available in Smets Premium Store Brussels and on from September 13th.
