They may be better known for their iconic pedal bin or kitchen and bathroom accessories, but always at the forefront of classic minimalist design and after 75 years as a household name, Vipp have launched their first lighting collection. And you need to see it, because – Vipp!
I’d been wondering if lighting might be their next move and I’m far from disappointed with the results. Beautiful. The new collection consists of five strong pieces; the floor and table lamp, ceiling pendant, wall lamp and the small wall spot (see below). Take a look and tell me what you think…
Staying true to their industrial roots, these lights are designed with longevity in mind, using longer lasting LED technology, allowing easy replacement of the bulb without having to replace the whole fixture. Nothing is throw-away here. I can see this series becoming another Vipp classic, with their perforated, powder coated aluminium shades which allow a gentle hint of light through around the edges as well as from the source. They’re adjustable, flexible, made to last.
We make only one kind of each product so you’re not going to see a new collection of Vipp lamps next year. For once you have the essence of good light, what more is there to achieve with a lamp?
