The Vipp success story begins on a spring Sunday in 1931 when the 17-year-old Holger Nielsen wins a car in a lottery at the local football stadium. Holger loves cars, but has no driver's license, so he decides to sell the car and invest in a metal lathe. This marks the start of the Holger metal factory, where a few years later he makes a product that will become famous all over the world: the iconic Vipp pedal bin.
"A good design never goes out of fashion," said Holger. Time has proved him right; the Vipp trash has only marginally improved since it was born in 1939. Today, the trash can be recognized internationally as a design classic and in November 2009 it was even included in the architecture and design collection of the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York.
Holger and his wife, Marie's youngest daughter, Jette Egelund, decide to take over the company. So far the trash can has only been sold to the professional market, but Jette is convinced that it can also be sold to design enthusiasts around the world. Jette visits the best furniture and design stores in Scandinavia. After much time and determination, The Conran Shop finally orders the pedal bucket for their London and Paris stores.
Today, Vipp is a third-generation family business. Jette is now assisted by her two children, Sofie and Kasper, who, together with a dedicated team of employees and with a growing range of products, continue to add to the special Vipp story.
The original waste bin is available in five sizes and is accompanied with new bathroom and kitchen products. The new products are manufactured using the same characteristic Vipp materials, steel and rubber, thereby improving Vipp's more than 70-year tradition for excellent craftsmanship and durability.
Fun fact: Each hand-assembled bin consists of up to 42 components. One craftsperson can create six bins per hour ensuring quality that lasts.
