Vipp has made a plug and play getaway that allows you to escape urban chaos in a 55m2 all-inclusive nature retreat. 75 years of experience with steel processing is used to craft this prefabricated object designed down to last detail.

Like all products in the interior this construction is a tool made to accomplish something – in this case to facilitate an escape to nature. It is neither a house nor a mobile home. Rather it is spacious, functional, and livable industrial object.
