VIPP Shelter


Now you can live in a VIPP

LIVING IN A PRODUCT

Vipp has made a plug and play getaway that allows you to escape urban chaos in a 55m2 all-inclusive nature retreat.

75 years of experience with steel processing is used to craft this prefabricated object designed down to last detail. The only choice left to the customer is where to place it. The simple steel grid structurally supports the two level space, where only the bathroom and bed loft is shielded from the main living space. Within the transparent shell, nature is omnipresent yet with a physical blindage that provides shelter

from weather conditions. The recurring element of steel and the interior fitted with Vipp products ranging from hooks to lamps to kitchen convince you that you have entered a Vipp product. Like all products in the interior this construction is a tool made to accomplish something – in this case to facilitate an escape to nature. It is neither a house nor a mobile home. Rather it is spacious, functional, and livable industrial object.

– we call it The Vipp Shelter.

PRICE 485,000 € / 585,000 $
Delivery time 6 months
Installation time 3-5 days

ALL INCLUSIVE

The hooks, the ladder, kitchen, the daybed, the lamps, the shelves, the towels, the toilet brush…and the list continues.

Everything you see is Vipp. And it is all inclusive. The Vipp shelter is delivered fully equipped for a total design experience and an easy escape. There is no evident link between a pedal bin, a kitchen and a shelter but enter the shelter and the philosophy of one long lasting, functional tool per category is embodied in every item you see.

“Vipp is rooted in the manufacture of industrial objects, so the term ‘shelter’

is a typology that allows us to define this modern escape as a product inspired by large volume object
such as a plane, a ferry or a submarine.”

–  MORTEN BO JENSEN, CHIEF DESIGNER IN VIPP  –

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 of indoor outdoor space.

A PLUG AND PLAY GETAWAY

The vision is to simplify the process of creating your own getaway. When buying the Vipp shelter you buy into a design approach.

Design choices have already been made based on a long experience within processing of solid materials with a defined aesthetic idiom. Designers and engineers have made the necessary deselections and defined the construction and material requirements.

We exploit the benefits of a pre-fabrication allowing the process to be easy, speedy and cost-efficient.

Production takes place in Frederiksværk, Denmark and is estimated to approximately 5-6 months + freight & installation (from order confirmation). Delivery time varies according to location. Installation will take between 3-5 days.

The point of departure is not a piece of land on which a house has been customized taking into consideration the natural surroundings. Rather the Vipp Shelter is prefabricated and built to fit any type of landscape and natural conditions.

“There is plenty of amazing architecture out there, but we wanted to conceive something different rooted in who we are.

So we used our 75 years of experince with steel processing to craft an escape in the form of a prefabricated object designed
down to last detail, where the only choice left to the customer, is where to put it.”

HOW TO GET YOUR OWN

1. Find your piece of land

In the darkest firest or in the brightest desert

The Vipp shelter is prefabricated and built to fit any type of landscape and natural conditions including heavy snow load. We suggest you find a local contractor that can confirm site compliance to our technical guidelines describing size & weight, foundation, requirements for water, sewage & electricity, site access, isolation, mounting & fitting. Prior to production, we provide you with a full set of Vipp shelter documentation drawings for your local contractor.

Learn more about site compliance HERE and technical specifications HERE

2. We deliver & install

Just tell us where and when

Consider the Vipp shelter as a finished product. This means that you cannot alter the design of the shelter. Learn more about the design concept here. Vipp delivers a completely finished design product where production will take up to 6 months and installation is done within 3-5 days. Like a new car would never be delivered without wheels, a Vipp Shelter will never be handed over unfinished.

Nor will it ever be delivered by others than our own experienced crew who does not leave until the result lives up to our quality standards. This is your guarantee for a premium experience. Vipp takes care of freight and installation of the shelter with our own crew in collaboration with your local contractor. Freight and installation cost is upon request and dependent on specific location.
