Pedal Bin

12 to 14 Weeks


The story of Vipp began in a Danish provincial town in 1939, when Holger Nielsen's wife, Marie, asked him a question. “Holger”, said Marie. “I need a waste bin for my salon. Can you make me one?”. These words mark the beginning of Vipp. Marie had opened up a hairdressing salon. As a metal smith, Holger knew what makes a quality tool. So he made Marie a bin that worked and that very few people will ever wear out. He named it Vipp. “Good design never goes out of fashion”, Holger used to say. Time has proven him right; the Vipp bin has only been marginally improved since it saw the light of day back in 1939. 

The Vipp pedal bin is available in five different sizes. It is made with a layer of stainless steel and equipped with a damper mechanism for smooth closing of the lid as well as a rubber ring that guarantees air-tight closure. The body is manufactured in powder-coated steel and hides the removable, galvanised steel inner bin. A rubber ring at the base ensures that sensitive surfaces are safeguarded.
