Last week I got the amazing opportunity to visit Copenhagen and stay in Vipp’s new 3rd hotel room designed by Studio David Thulstrup: The Chimney House.
This historical landmark, built in 1902, once was a water pumping station but has been entirely renovated into a cutting-edge, modern building equipped with Vipp products and curated art pieces, all while retaining the charm of the original architectural shell.
David Thulstrup, architect and founder of Studio David Thulstrup. about the project: “For me it was a dream architectural project, from the strong gestures of the building to the finest interior detailing. I was encouraged to make it edgy, and with that I wanted to add the personality, comfort and aesthetics of a private residence. I wanted people to feel at home.”
I arrived late at night so it was already dark, but as soon as I opened the arch doors in steel-framed glass, I was blown of my socks. You can clearly recognise Vipp’s signature design language throughout the space and just like their products, which are known for quality and durability, you get the same feeling about the entire house as well.
The downstairs area has a fully equipped Vipp kitchen in black, which was so nice to try out and my absolute dream kitchen. A large dining table (with their new leather dining chairs) next to the kitchen island stands under the 8.5m heigh ceiling, which looks straight up to the Chimney. A sofa area with the new Vipp sofa and a fully stocked design library next to it make for a perfect cozy evening spot.
Upstairs there are two bedrooms (you can see the master bedroom with the connected walk-in closet in the pictures) with a bathroom in the middle. The floors in the house are a mixture of wood and grey terrazzo, which is continued in the bathroom as well. I’m in love with the mixture of the terrazzo and the white bathroom furniture. Such a great combo !
I have visited the Vipp shelter a few years back as well, now I just need to see the Vipp Loft in person and then I have experienced all three of their exclusive design concepts.
This post was written in collaboration with Vipp, however all words and opinions are my own of course. You can read more about the Chimney House here, and find almost all the products that are photographed here.
