The VIPP Shelter by VIPP
VIPP, a Danish company renowned for making trash cans has taken a new creative direction by designing a slick and portable prefab shelter called The VIPP Shelter respectively.
For a getaway house that can op up just about anywhere, The VIPP Shelter is a 600 sq ft minimalist home weighing 50,000 pounds. It comes fully furnished and takes only three to five days to assemble on site.
This compact shelter can accommodate up to four people while its minimalist design helps the structure to blend seamlessly into the landscape.
From the architects: “Vipp is upscaling its classic accessories and recent kitchen and bathroom modules to build shelters. The driving ambition of the Danish company means that you can now match your kitchen and its accessories to your nature retreat. The result is a modern escape, powerful in its simplicity yet packed with exquisitely conceived details.”
“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.
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.”
