Vipp is renowned for its iconic dustbins, which it has been producing since 1939. However, the Danish company has now become synonymous with quality products for the kitchen and bathroom. In a recent move to expand its product portfolio, Vipp launched one of its most sensational product-developments in the form of a radical reinterpretation of the kitchen.
“Vipp’s experience lies within product design focusing on solid materials, mechanics and function,” says Morten Bo Jensen, chief designer at Vipp. “As a consequence we have chosen to design the Vipp kitchen as a product or rather as a piece of furniture. The result is a range of kitchen modules where choices have already been made based on a thorough knowledge of materials combined with an aesthetic opinion on what constitutes good design.”
With over 70 years of steel processing experience, stainless steel was an obvious choice of material in the development of the Vipp kitchen. “Like with the Vipp bin, we bring the industrial look into the home with the new kitchen – a solid product, standing to be used day after day,” says Morten Bo Jensen.
The Vipp kitchen provides a range of modules in different sizes that can be combined and formed according to an individual’s needs. The kitchen is available in black and white and looks just as impressive in both colourways.
What do you think of this kitchen? And what colour do you prefer it in?
Another great use of tiles to give the kitchen its dose of yellow and gray, this is an idea for those who are not too keen on too much yellow disturbing the existing color scheme of their home. The dozen or so lemon yellow tiles combined with gray and white pieces still make plenty of visual impact and yet also seem to gently melt away into the backdrop. Notice here how the LED strip lighting literally puts the smart backsplash under the spotlight.
While some kitchens tend to revel in a flood of yellow and others look great when gray takes over the lead role, there are times when you need a perfect balance between both hues to create your dream kitchen. Yellow plays a major role in kitchens with styles ranging from rustic and farmhouse to Mediterranean and Craftsman. Gray on the other hand brings the urbane appeal of contemporary and transitional styles and even looks perfectly at home in industrial settings. It is often the style you choose that will determine which of the two colors plays the protagonist in your kitchen.
