Vipp 70th anniversary
In one of my earlier posts I highlighted the lovely yellow cab collection of VIPP.
And now Vipp is celebrating its 70th anniversary by hosting a charity auction in New York City in collaboration with design retailer Design Within Reach (DWR). The auction will benefit DIFFA: Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS. The auction will feature Vipp pedal bins re-imagined by 35 leading creative personalities.
Public viewing and bidding from October 15 - 28 at DWR: Tools for Living located at 142 Wooster Street, New York City, during regular store hours (11am-7pm). Gala auction to be held October 28.
On the occasion of the anniversary, Vipp decided to take a walk down memory lane: the Vipp 70th Anniversary Edition has been produced according to the specifications of the very first Vipp bin, created in Holger Nielsen's workshop 70 years ago. The miniature bin comes with the original ears, logo and wavy lid. Isn't this a lovely design item?
