Vipp is a Danish manufacturer of the original Vipp waste bin made since 1939. The Vipp bin, created by Danish craftsman Holger Nielsen and originally only intended for his wife’s hairdressing salon, has today become an internationally recognized design icon permanently installed at MoMA in New York. We took five Vipp items including the classic waste bin and transformed them into art objects using our signature material of bamboo plywood. Each communicates our philosophy of aiming for 'Zero Waste'.
