A month ago I opened my email and there was a lovely letter waiting for me.
Vipp wanted to invite me to Copenhagen and to visit their Shelter. I had seen the pictures all over the social media in past months, so I was really exited to finally see it in real life. I had also been planing a trip to Copenhagen so I decided to combine these two visits.
We started our tripp from Vipp office where Jette Egelund told us a very touching story about
how Vipp got started and how it became what it is today.
After our small breakfast and great stories with Jette and Vipps chief designer Morten Bo Jensen we started two hours drive to Vipp Shelter.
When we arrived to the Shelter everybody was quite quiet.
I think it is something that happens when you arrive to that kind of calm place.
The thing I loved the most, was that the nature was left how it is and after you opened the big windows you really felt like you were outside even you had a shelter around you.
The Vipp shelter is delivered fully equipped for a complete design experience and an easy escape.
I think the Shelter looked a very much as it ´s designer Morten Bo Jensen. First of all it was black like his favorite color and you could really see from every where that he gets his inspiration from funktional industrial objects. Everything had a purpose and there was nothing that you do not really need. And in the end, even the shelter is made from black steel, I think it will look even better after few years, when the nature around it has grown even more.

Take a look also about their nice video about the Shelter.
