When you look at pics of the Vipp Shelter out in the Swedish forests, the first thing that comes to mind probably isn’t a trash can. But that’s where all things Vipp began. The Danish design company creates sleek and functional products for the kitchen and bath, and the first thing their founder designed was a step trash can for his wife’s salon. The Vipp “hotel” is actually three separate locations, each one accommodating two guests at a time.
The Vipp Shelter is set against the backdrop of Sweden’s Lake Immeln, about two hours east of Copenhagen. There’s a private wooden pier at your disposal should you want to take a dip in the lake and hiking trails in every direction. The hyper-modern steel and glass pod is a little under 600 square feet and offers an open-concept living space complete with fireplace, floor-to-ceiling windows, and a fully-equipped kitchen. You’ll sleep in a bed loft complete with a glass ceiling for staring up at the trees. Instead of a wake-up call, the Vipp Shelter offers complimentary birdsong.
The cabin sleeps two adults and goes for about $1,100 a night. The entire shelter is outfitted with Vipp products, so you can use one of their step trash cans and get a good idea of where all of this amazing design was born. [via]
