VIPP | Back to beige
A reintroduction of the very first colour choice by Vipp-founder, Holger Nielsen. A tribute to the design heritage that Holger Nielsen initiated when he crafted the iconic Vipp pedal bin in 1939, Vipp introduces an interpretation of the very first colour he chose for his bin.
After decades of a stringent black-and-white-only colour scheme, the permanent Vipp collection is infused with warmer, nostalgic notes. The five-sized pedal bin, soap dispenser, toothbrush holder, toilet brush, and laundry basket have been dipped in a sandy, mat powder-coating with a slightly rugged surface.
“If we go back to the beginning everything was beige. It matched my mother’s hairdressing salon, for which it was originally made. From the 1930s and decades ahead, my father’s bins were primarily sold to doctors, dentists, and veterinarians. To match the hospitals, institution walls and inventory at the time, he used the same off-white color for his pedal bins.”
