It‘s a product not an architecture. A machine that travels You to a natural escape. It is neither a house nor a mobile home. Rather it is spacious, functional, and livable industrial object. And you can buy on the online store. Yup.
What is like to enter Vipp?
Danish lifestyle brand VIPP recently launched their own industrial-chic prefab known as the VIPP Shelter. The Vipp shelter is fully equipped 55 m2 + an attic house with interior, so grab your iPad, cat, dog, snake, or a bat and a weekend bag. That is all you need to escape to the Vipp shelter. Everything else is taken care of: a centrally located fireplace to keep everything nice and cosy, stylish furniture, lighting, tableware, towels and even bed linen are included in the shelter allowing you an easy escape.
What is like to buy VIPP shelter?
It’s awesome. VIPP Shelter prices start at $585,000 (€485,000) with a delivery time of six months plus freight + installation.
Where is first Vipp house located?
The first shelter is placed in Sweden and this means that Vipp has no special ‘Danish’ feelings for the first location, the shelter is intended for locations in any corner of the world. People are talking that there will be a contest later to guess where it is. So come on, programers, react fast, we need the app to check them in!
What about sustainability?
If you are cold you heat up the fireplace centrally positioned in the shelter for an equal distribution of heat; if you are warm you slide open the parallel panorama windows to create natural air-condition. By locating the house in the deep deciduous woods, we are able to take advantage of the leaves as sun shading in the summer months. In the winter, when the trees lose their leaves, the building’s black exterior absorbs sunlight and with the fireplace, there is a reduction in fuel consumption.
