The “hotel” by the Danish company Vipp, which manufactures home utensils, follows a concept where the number of beds is certainly not the focus of attention.

The metal goods producer Vipp, which manufactures an iconic pedal bin, is entering the hotel business. Yet to put it mildly, growth will be organic: There are essentially only two guest rooms available. Indeed, the somewhat tongue-in-cheek name “Vipp hotel” refers to just two, albeit extraordinary, lodgings. The “Vipp shelter” is a small holiday bungalow made of black steel and located in a Swedish forest, providing on a space measuring 55 square meters everything you need for a secluded, relaxed weekend. It is not only nature that seems to have a slowing-down effect here; the specially selected, pared-down interior is also designed to help guests refocus. The “Vipp loft” in contrast, designed by Studio David Thulstrup, measures 400 square meters and is located in a historical building in Copenhagen’s harbor district. The third room of the Vipp hotel is set to open soon in a further historical building in the Danish capital. So it would seem that the path to becoming a hotel empire is already mapped out.
