Morten Bo Jensen, Chief Designer

‘The Vipp design philosophy is taken straight out of the Vipp bin and guides the design of all new products.’

Detail

Step on it

The pedal bin was not designed in the strict traditional sense, but got its visual expression in response to a series of functional criteria; one being a pedal for a hands-free operation.

Detail

All ears

Holger’s bin was born with a set of ears to ensure a mobile object easy to move around.

Pedal to the metal

Every Vipp bin is hand assembled, just like they were in 1939. A lot of the tooling is still the same as it was in the old days; the press for punching out the shape of the lid id the same one that Holger used. Each bin is polished by hand and is oiled with a special cloth to prevent scratches on the lid. After almost 80 years of intensive testing, the product has stood the test of time.

story

I forgot to ask my father why he named it Vipp

In Danish, 'vippe' means 'to tilt'; it describes the movement of a bin lid. Jette Egelund, daughter of Holger Nielsen, is convinced that this must have been her father's inspiration for the name.
