A great bin goes MINI
Vipp is celebrating its 70th anniversary with a miniature model of Holger Nielsen’s original Vipp pedal bin – to the delight of design enthusiasts across the world. The Vipp 70th Anniversary Edition has been produced in a scale of 1:5 and in a limited series of 400 numbered copies.
On the occasion of the anniversary, we decided to take a walk down memory lane: the Vipp 70th Anniversary Edition has been produced according to the specifications of the very first Vipp bin, created in Holger Nielsen’s workshop 70 years ago. The miniature bin comes with the original ears, logo and wavy lid.
The first Vipp bin saw the light of day in 1939 when Holger Nielsen created it for his wife Marie’s hairdressing salon. Much has happened over the past 70 years – the Vipp bin has been dressed in a variety of colours, it has been exhibited at the Louvre, and many international personalities in the worlds of fashion, design and music have sprinkled stardust on the Danish design icon. And yet, the Vipp bin remains just the same.
Down-to-earth and practical – timeless, elegant and designed to last the next 70 years.
The Vipp 70th Anniversary Edition is available in selected shops.

Jette Egelund grew up with Vipp, and even as a little girl, she loved to watch the production of the bin – at first by looking over the shoulders of the employees and later by taking part in the production herself. It was a tough job in a man’s world, but she managed to get by. And so began the love for her father’s business, which she has headed since 1993.
The Vipp collection has been expanded significantly in recent years and now comprises everything from pedal bins through laundry bins to a complete series for the bathroom with a towel bar, toilet roll holder and much more. Find out more at www.vipp.com.
