Nielsen designed his first bin in 1939, for use in his wife’s salon, and the rest is history. Now occupying a place in MOMA’s permanent collection, the Vipp Pedal Bin has set the agenda for bin design ever since. In placing a focus on function ahead of form, Nielsen created a truly iconic piece of design.
This edition of the Vipp Pedal Bin is available in a series of classic, simple colourways, and adopts a short form, making it well-suited to spaces such as bathrooms. The VIPP14 features a powder-coated finish, has an 8-litre capacity, and features a removable inner bin, a lid that provides air-tight closure, and a smooth closing system. Larger Vipp pedal bins are available to suit all manner of needs.
In 1939, Vipp was founded by a skilled metalworker called Holger Nielsen, who crafted a pedal bin for his wife’s hair salon.
Over time, the iconic bin design and studio gained popularity in Denmark and remains a family-owned business to this day. Notably, in 2009, MoMA included the Vipp Pedal Bin in its prestigious design collection.
