Imagine escaping the stresses of everyday life in a all-inclusive nature retreat called a ‘shelter’. A prefabricated object designed down to the last detail, where the only choice left is where to put it. Maybe on the edge of a lake? Beside the sea? Deep in the forest?
The starting point of the Vipp shelter is to go back to basics. The landscape is purposely framed, making it the focal point and the interior is predominantly dark so that nothing competes with nature. The simple steel grid structurally supports the two level space, where only the bathroom and bed loft is separated from the main living space.
‘A battery-charging station for humans’ is how Vipp’s CEO, Kasper Egelund, describes the company’s latest innovation.
The shelter comes fully equipped with Vipp products including everything from lighting to linen, from table to toilet brush, and from shelves to soap dispenser. It’s prefabricated north of Copenhagen with a production time of 6 months and will take 3-5 days for installation.
I can certainly see the appeal of a holiday bolt-hole where nothing detracts from the view. Where no decisions have to be made at all about internal decoration or what fittings to use. Just what time to get up, how to spend the day and what to put on the barbecue. Pure bliss and pure escapism. I’d confiscate all phones and leave all electronics at home. And just think how easy this (not so little – it’s 55 square metres ) space would be to clean!
Vipp shelter can be yours for 485,000 euro (ex. transportation).
