Are you a fan of Vipp waste bins? We are (several of us at Remodelista have them in our bathrooms), so we took notice when we learned that the company has branched into modular kitchens. Should Bulthaup be worried?
Synonymous with superior mechanics and design, Danish company Vipp (a company founded in 1939 with a single pedal bin) is launching a range of kitchen modules made of stainless steel and available in several sizes and configurations. The Vipp kitchen is currently available through the Vipp Flagship Store in Copenhagen. Not in the market for a new kitchen? Vipp also offers shelves and a range of kitchen tools shown below.

Above: Vipp Kitchen Furniture is available in black (shown) or white and is made of high quality stainless steel.
Above: Made of powder-coated aluminum shaped into a U-form, the new Vipp 921/922 Shelf is mounted with an invisible bracket that creates the impression of a floating shelf. Available by late August in two sizes in white and black; €149 and €249.
