A design classic for the homely PC now! The Danish manufacturer Vipp offers a digital version of its legendary dustbin to download on its homepage. Design enthusiasts, Vipp-fans and friends of individual desktop-designs will have their personal Vipp Pedal Bin.
The original Vipp Pedal Bin delights people already since 1939 with its classic and aesthetic simplicity, the straight lines, soft curves and durable materials. The origin of the Vipp Pedal Bin is furthermore related to a small history:
The Craftsman Holger Nielsen wanted to help his wife Marie Axelsen with the affordable furnishing of her women’s salon in 1939 and he therefore developed the pedal bin. The customers of her salon were amazed by the pedal bin, so that they ordered more models of the pedal bin for the offices of their husbands, from Holger Nielsen. Nielsen begun the regular production of the bin afterwards and founded the Vipp company which is now a family company in the third generation.
