Vipp Shelter tiny prefab as precise industrial-era appliance

Click HERE to



The Danish company VIPP (famous for its iconic 1939 wastebasket, now in the MOMA) has created a prefab tiny home designed down to the last detail (flashlight included). Their 592-square-foot “plug and play getaway” wasn’t designed to blend into nature, but to float above it; fifty thousand pounds of glass and steel serve as a frame for the surrounding landscape.

VIPP designer Morten Bo Jensen explains that the shelter wasn’t designed as a piece of architecture, but an industrial object. The prefab structure is built in a factory and the four modules are transported by truck to the site. The shelter can be constructed in 3 to 5 days using just bolts for the modules and 9,000 screws for the steel plates.

The small prefab can house 4 people: 2 on a daybed and 2 in a loft bedroom. The floor-to-ceiling glass walls slide open and closed with mechanical rollers, designed to move the 400 or 500-kilo doors with ease. “We kind of like this idea that you just grab it and slide it open,” explains Jensen, “instead of motorized solutions that would be more different from our philosophy of very mechanical products that just last for a long time.”

    I can imagine how I wake up in the middle of the night, drunk as f*ck and I need to go to toilet. That would be how I die… falling from the ladder.

    If I walked around in boxer briefs all day, do you think anyone would notice?? Lol. Swedish accents make me crazy (er). Really tremendous project! Wonder what the lifespan is of such a type of project? Thanks for sharing this. Love the idea of being outside, inside. With the fireplace going. Perfect romantic environ.

    Where is the link so I can be a xustomer? I prefer the model with eztra gentle handwash mode clothing machine. And it really is like a camera house. It is a frame for the universe. The Universe Art Gallery. Finally a house I can agree with, touch me nature!

    Now I know what to do if I win the lottery. I like this more than the similar but probably more expensive Apple architect's home in California. I think the view is better too.

    What if you broke your leg? How would you go to sleep? Or what if you will feel bad at night and you need urgently to visit WC?

  18. October 14, 2018 at 6:54 pm

    I would buy it for $100k.

    I live in Asia, this house would be a mosquito breeding center.

    Your design ideas are simple and essentials . Your seascape view is serene The Glassdoor's are beautiful. The shelter speaks volumes to nature.

    My concern with glass there is the amount of birds dying crashing on the windows! Not nice.

  22. October 14, 2018 at 6:54 pm

    Stone steps- what an natural idea!

  23. October 14, 2018 at 6:54 pm

  26. October 14, 2018 at 6:54 pm

    I like it very much! Just wondering how difficult it would be to keep the mosquitos/bugs out..?

  27. October 14, 2018 at 6:54 pm

    It looks nice, but it has a depressive vibe…looks like a sad house where the person is just waiting to die…
