What started from a young metalworker (Holger Nielsen) crafting a pedal-controlled bin for his wife Marie has, over the years, grown into the design powerhouse that is known as Vipp.

The home and lifestyle brand has come a long way since starting in 1939 with minimalist kitchen modules, salt and pepper shakers, towels, plates and even a bed & breakfast to its name. The Danish brand has now applied their expertise to a new electric kettle. Five years in the making, the small appliance adds craft-focused cookware to the brand’s long range of kitchen accessories.

Take a look at the first ever Vipp kitchen

“The design of the Vipp electric kettle borrows its shape from the old-school dome-shaped kettle used over heat, yet with the convenience of electrical heating.” says Morten Bo Jensen, chief designer at Vipp.The entire kettle and handle is powder-coated in black while the grooved spout in stainless steel, the organically shaped handle and soft rubber details make it an undeniably Vipp design. It is sleek with only a discreet toggle button and a small LED on/off indicator interrupting the smooth, black surface. It can hold one litre of water and stands on a stainless steel 360° swivel base with non-slip rubber details.

Priced at £179 and will be available from November 2018;
