The Vipp Binn - A Design Icon
In 1939, Holger Nielsen wrote the first chapter of the Vipp story when he crafted a pedal bin for his wife’s hairdressing salon. It was crafted in a backyard in the suburb of Randers, Vorup. The result was the Vipp bin, which has been over the entire world since. Today it is a design ikon and has been displayed in Louvre and MoMa in New York to name a few.
