If you follow me for some time you must have seen my trip to Copenhagen where we got to make some images and try out the first Vipp kitchen in both the amazing Loft in Copenhagen and the beautiful minimalistic getaway, the Vipp shelter in the woods of Sweden. Today Vipp unveils its second kitchen design named V2.
While the first kitchen made in steel presented a raw and refined industrial design, the V2 is crafted in wood, stone, glass and metal adding a new organic tactility and materiality to kitchen design. Dark oak meets Jura marble in a design language that takes us from Vipp’s roots in Denmark all the way to Japan through a simple and refined aesthetic idiom.
Dark oak meets Jura marble
Morten Bo Jensen, Chief Designer at Vipp explains: “The result is V2, a new kitchen system where dark oak meets Jura marble – a fine grained lime-stone rich in fossils from the Germany’s Alp region – in a carefully curated interplay. Combined with carefully carved cabinets in oak sourced in Europe, the fine-grained limestone confers a new organic tactility to Vipp’s functional kitchen system.
The new V2 lends the design principles of high-quality materials and functional detailing that laid the ground for V1, the first Vipp kitchen presented 10 years ago. While stone and oak signify a new material approach, you will recognize Vipp in the use of one of our trademark materials – extruded aluminium.
Rounded aluminium profiles with reeded details serve as discreet, integrated drawer and cabinet grips. Drawer constructions and interior fittings like the softly moulded silicone cutlery divider found in the V1 kitchen are repeated in the V2 kitchen. The modularity, utilities, and building-block approach, also known from the V1, are reused in the V2 kitchen, where predefined units form either tall, wall or island modules.
