If Batman needed a vacation getaway, we imagine it might look something like this. A Danish design firm recently unveiled their first prefab architecture, called the Vipp shelter. It comes in at just under 600 square feet, and features a unique two-level design that sits perched above the ground. The company bills it as a “plug and play” unit, as it includes a host of their unique concept products throughout the space.
In fact, all this was born from a simple idea – the pedal trash bin. In 1931, 17-year-old Holger Nielsen won a car, but had no license so he sold it. In it’s place he invested in a metal lathe, and started fabricating various objects, including a trash bin that still remains a fixture of the Vipp product line. The eye-catching trash bin soon became a permanent feature of many Danish clinics, and thus a demand was born.
The small residence accommodates up to four people, with one main bed in the lofted area, and a day bed in the lower level. The designers wanted to simplify the process of building your own vacation retreat, and the entire shelter can be set up in 3-5 days.
