I am pleasantly surprised by the news about Vipp‘s first venture into solid wood furniture! Famous and loved for their metal kitchens, you might remember the pictures we made when I traveled to Denmark and Sweden to shoot and try their kitchen in real live in two of the three rooms of the Vipp Hotel? It was such a fun trip from Copenhagen into the woods in Sweden and the shelter at the lake.
The new collection is named ‘Cabin’ and derives from an architecture project to be revealed by Vipp later this year. I am really curious to learn more about it as it sounds so promising after my experience at the Vipp shelter. Crafted from solid oak the Cabin series unfolds in a trio of complimentary designs consisting of a chair, a square table and a round table.
Morten Bo Jensen, Chief designer at Vipp: “In our effort to design holistic interior experiences, we saw the need to embrace material contrasts between hard and soft, which explains why we have welcomed textile and wood into Vipp’s material palette”
“Given our historical predilection for steel products, our venture into wood, which is an organic and natural material, marks quite a shift. Yet, our design process holds the same refinement and attention to detail whether we shape steel or wood”
Simple and airy yet sturdy and refined are appropriate labels describing the furniture trio that comes in either light or dark oak. The organic idiom is expressed by softly rounded components with subtle details such as invisible joins and grooved surfaces. The chair comes with or without seat padding. The raw material is sourced in Europe and the marble top holds the prestigious ‘Jura’ label.
