February 23th-25th I was invited to visit and photograph the Vipp Loft in Copenhagen. Vipp Loft is located in the same building as the company’s Copenhagen headquarter; an old printing factory in the industrial area of Islands Brygge.
The Danish design company Vipp employed Studio David Thulstrup to create “a multi -functional and holistic home environment” beneath the original oak rafters of the factory’s loft area on 400m2.
The space is large enough to accommodate a mozzanine containing a study and library which are connected by a bridge to a dark, secluded bedroom. The open-plan living area i arranged around a freestand Vipp kitchen. Vintage furniture and diverse artworks create the feel of a “mini museum of contemporary art and design”.
Vipp was founded more than 75 years ago by Holger Nielsen, who developed the first bin for his wife’s hair salon. The pedal bin is now in MoMA’s permanent collection and the company is run by Holger’s daughter Jette Egelund, along with her two children Kasper and Sofie. It has 15 employes.
I had a very lovely time spending the weekend in this stunning Vipp Loft. It’s obvious that every little detail, materials and all the design interiors have been carefully chosen for this space with such a cool yet cozy atmosphere.

I recently had the great pleasure to try, style and photography the EJ 5 Corona chair and the EJ-197 Insula Piccoli Wood table in oak. I even had a chance to design my own Corona chair which was a very exciting experience. I’ve chosen fabric from Kvadrat and spring steel in champagne.
The Insula Table is a flexible table series available as a bar table, coffee table, dinning table and and coffee table. The new edition Insula Piccolo Wood is made in oak and made for a beautiful nordic look. Nature and organic forms are part of the inspiration of the table series Insula, designed by Anne-Mette Bartholin Jensen and Morten Ernst in 2009.The shape of the table is dynamic and appealing – and matches numerous contexts. Insult functions, as the name suggests, as well small islands. The coffee tables can be placed together or in groups, resembling clusters of islands.
EJ 5 Corona speaks for itself. Simple and charismatic like the wreath or corona that can be seen around the sun during full solar eclipse. Corona became a classic a long time ago and has already appeared in numerous films, fashion editorials and music videos. Poul M. Volther was inspired by the human anatomy when he designed Corona which is why it looks light but as strong as spine.
