The Vipp Shelter is a plug and play fully equipped getaway that allows you to escape urban chaos in a 55m² (592ft²) 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 planes, ferries and submarines, where every single screw serves a purpose – in this case to facilitate an escape to nature. It is neither a house nor a mobile home. Rather it is spacious, functional, and livable industrial object.

A shelter in its original sense has connotations of basic living serving a merely functional purpose and attending to our primal need of having a roof over our head. 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 between indoor and outdoor space.
The vision behind the Vipp shelter is to simplify the process of creating your own getaway. When buying the Vipp shelter you buy into a design approach. Design choices have already been made based on a long experience within processing of solid materials with a defined aesthetic idiom. Designers and engineers have made the necessary deselections and defined the construction and material requirements. Production takes place in Frederiksværk, Denmark and is estimated to approximately 5-6 months, installation to 3-5 days and delivery time varies per location.
