Vipp Shelter

Perhaps best known for their iconic pedal bins, the Danish design practice has introduced the Vipp Shelter, a 55 square meter prefabricated steel entity which is neither a house nor a mobile home; instead Vipp calls it a spacious, functional, and livable industrial object under the slogan Now You Can Live in a Vipp. This earned the shelter the prestigious Wallpaper* Design Award 2015 for “Best Brand Extension”.

The Vipp Shelter is designed on minimalist principles but comes all-inclusive: the interior is fitted with Vipp products ranging from hooks to lamps to kitchen. Steensen Varming has provided mechanical services including calculations of thermal bridges, assessment of condensation and windows for energy optimisation in a completely integrated design that allows the user to become one with nature.
