80th Anniversary Limited Edition
'The Danish Bin'
Vipp marks its 80th birthday in 2019 and have commissioned French artist Vahram Muratyan to pay tribute to Vipp’s Danish roots. The artist’s city silhouettes unfold on a limited series of the 14 liters bin.
“I normally work in 2D, but with a round canvas I wanted to illustrate the carrousel of daily life through a jubilant narrative in the beautiful city of Copenhagen - a city much more colourful than my hometown of Paris.”
Inspired by Muraytan’s city illustrations in his visually striking bestseller ‘Paris vs. New York’, Vipp turned to the Paris-based artist and offered its bin as a canvas. “My first encounter with Vipp was at The Museum of Modern Art in New York (MoMA). I was convinced the brand was American due to the bin’s retro mobile look. Its design reminded me of a classic American car. So, I was quite surprised to learn about the company’s Danish roots when Vipp contacted me for a collaboration to celebrate its 80th anniversary.” – Vahram Muratyan
