Prefabricated home with style. 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. A 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. The shelter is a finished product inspired by large volume objects such as a plane, a ferry or a submarine, where every single screw serves a purpose.
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.
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.
The simple steel grid structurally supports the two level space, where only the bathroom and bed loft is shielded from the main living space comprising a kitchen and relaxing area.
4 sleeping guests can stay in the shelter at the same time: 1 main bed for 2 persons in the bed loft, and 2 additional persons on the day bed on the lower level.
