Some weeks ago I was invited to visit the Vipp Shelter together with a small group of other bloggers from around Europe. After a couple of hours by car through the deep forests of southern Sweden, we arrived at the house, situated by an idyllic lake, perfect for a tranquil weekend away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life in city.
Perhaps you are already acquainted with the concept of the Vipp Shelter, but here it is in short:
Vipp has made a plug and play getaway that allows you to escape urban chaos in a 55m2 all-inclusive nature retreat. The Vipp shelter is delivered fully equipped for a complete design experience and an easy escape. A shelter in its original sense has connotations of basic living serving a merely functional purpose and attending to our primal need of having a roof over our head.
The starting point of the Vipp shelter is going back to basics; back to nature in a dense, compact space wrapped in the Vipp DNA. The simple steel grid structurally supports the two-level space, where only the bathroom and bed loft is shielded from the main living space comprising a kitchen and relaxing area. Four guests can spend the night in the shelter at the same time: There is one main bed for two people in the bed loft and the daybed on the lower level can fit two additional people.
I find the idea of not having to choose anything yourself very interesting, because isn’t this what we are all really looking for? A place where we can actually relax both our minds and bodies, not yet another project to work on.
