LIVING IN A PRODUCT
Vipp has made a plug and play getaway that gives you an escape from busy city life in the form of a 55m2 all-inclusive retreat.
Our legacy of steel processing dating back to 1939 has been put to use in crafting the Vipp shelter; a prefabricated object designed down to last detail. A simple steel grid structurally supports the two level space, where only the bathroom and bed loft is shielded from the main living space. Large windows on both sides and in the ceiling lets nature take center stage. The shelter is a finished product inspired by large volume objects such as planes, ferries and submarines, where every single screw serves a purpose.
NATURE IS OMNIPRESENT
A shelter in its original sense has connotations of basic living serving a merely functional purpose and attending to our primal need of having a roof over our head.
The starting point of the Vipp shelter is going back to basics; back to nature in a dense, compact space wrapped in the Vipp DNA. The landscape is purposely framed, turning it into the predominant element of the interior space. Each piece of interior and its dominant dark tones are carefully selected in order to keep focus on nature. The sliding window frames accentuate the sensation of living in nature by blurring the distinction between indoor and outdoor space.
