Over the years Copenhagen has become my family’s home away from home, with the gorgeous waterfront area of Islands Brygge our go-to place to stay. So when I read this week about Vipp’s latest hotel launch in this very area I was beside myself with excitement.
Right across the bridge from Copenhagen’s city centre, nestled on the ground floor of a Bauhaus inspired building from the 1930s, Vipp Pencil Case is the Danish design brands fifth one-of-a-kind destination.
The former Viking pencil factory has undergone a yearlong renovation by interior designer, Julie Cloos Mølsgaard, who has turned the 90m2 open plan apartment into a refined getaway for design-conscious visitors.
As you would expect, this high-ceilinged and light-filled space provides the perfect backdrop to showcase an array of Vipp products.
Playing with a carefully curated colour palette that ranges from beige to warm grey, guests can make use of a fully equipped V1 kitchen, dine at a Vipp Cabin table made from solid oak and Jura stone, before relaxing in a soft leather Vipp Lounge Chair.
Alongside their own products Julie has given the Vipp Pencil Case a luxurious finish by pairing the existing Dinesen HeartOak flooring with floor-to ceiling curtains by Kvadrat and comfortable Auping beds.
Finally, vibrant vases by Karl Monie along with an array of art pieces, including a wall sculpture in plaster by Cecilie Vår Norsahl provide a warm and welcoming atmosphere.
A two-night stay at Vipp Pencil Case for two adults starts at €1,000.
