Vipp shelter is a “livable industrial object” designed by Danish design company, Vipp. Even though it’s only 55 square meters, its two levels include all the comforts a modern house is able to offer.
The shelter is decorated with with the company’s products, from hooks and lamps to kitchen appliances, ensuring that the scheme retains a strong sense of identity. As Morten Bo Jensen, chief designer at Vipp, explains, “The objective was not to make a house or a mobile home. Vipp is rooted in the manufacture of industrial objects, so the term shelter is a typology that allows us to define this hybrid as a spacious, functionally generic, livable object.”
The residence is self-contained and it can host up to four people at a time. The idea behind it was to create a personal hideaway place, that can be hidden from anything and anyone, “There is plenty of amazing architecture out there, but we wanted to conceive something different; an escape in the form of an object designed down to last detail, where the only choice left to the customer, is where to put it”.
