Stark Danish Steel: The Bathroom Modules by Vipp

Instead of going broke on big ideas, the Danish kitchen and bathroom manufacturer we know as Vipp chose to focus first on the small ideas – like their epic pedal bin. Dainty and innovative, the company regarded for the pedal-open-toss garbage can since 1939 eventually busted out their very own signature Bathroom Module designs in three different sizes.

From the Designer of the Pedal Bin, Vipp Brings You the Bathroom Module in Three Different Sizes.

“Fixtures, drawer pulls and inserts – as well as the mirror – are developed in respect to Vipp’s design DNA injecting a functional and visual cohesiveness into the bathroom,” writes Vipp of their Bathroom Modules. Sold at their Vipp Flagship Store in Copenhagen, Denmark, the one-door, three-door, or four-door configurations are as solidly built as they are aesthetically pleasing.

“Vipp’s experience lies within product design focusing on solid materials, mechanics and function,” says Chief Designer at Vipp, Morten Bo Jensen. “As a consequence we have chosen to design the Vipp bathroom modules as a product or rather as a piece of furniture. The result is a range of modules where choices have already been made based on a thorough knowledge of materials combined with an aesthetic opinion on what constitutes good design.” Using a powder-coated stainless steel to construct the modules with 12mm Corian as a tabletop surface, the three sizes of Bathroom Modules fit with the Vipp industrial look of their bathroom and kitchen products with ease.

While the Bathroom Modules by Vipp are not rocket science, Vipp founder Holger Nielsen always said “Good design never goes out of fashion”. With that, we expect the Vipp collections to be popular 70 years from now.

About the Manufacturer: Vipp is a Danish manufacturer of kitchen and bathroom products that began back in 1939 after 17-year old Holger Nielsen won a car in a lottery and sold it for money that would buy him a metal lathe, and eventually, help him create his own metal factory. With time, the invention of the famous Vipp pedal trash bin brought on more of his timeless designs for the bathroom and kitchen spaces. And now, as of  November 2009, his Vipp bin was named a design classic and accepted into the architecture and design collection of The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York.
