Vipp Shelter

Let the Digital Detox Begin

We love unorthodox hospitality experiences and were thrilled to check into Vipp Shelter, located deep in the Swedish forests, a while back.

Danish brand Vipp’s journey from manufacturer of a pedal-controlled bin, introduced in 1939 and part of MoMA’s permanent design collection, to a lifestyle brand took a slightly unexpected turn in 2015, when Vipp opened its first one-bedroom hotel.

Vipp Shelter is a 55 sq m glass and steel pod equipped with everything you need to survive a weekend in the woods on the shores of lake Immeln – with the exception of internet and television, that is. Stargazing in bed, cooking up a storm in the kitchen or taking the rowboat out on the lake kick-starts your digital detox.
