Says Vipp, "When Danish craftsman Holger Nielsen created the pedal bin in 1939, it was only intended for his wife's hairdressing salon. Since then, the small waste bin has been on quite a journey and is now entering the colorful world of the internationally renowned artist Damien Hirst. An exclusive and limited collection will be presented at the opening of Astrup Fearnley Museet in Oslo, Norway on the 29th of September [2012]."

The limited edition Vipp bin was inspired by Hirst's colorful spot design Chloramphenicol Acetyltransferase, one of his most recognized art works. "I 've always loved colour, playing with colour, moving colours around. Designing a Vipp bin using spots makes the Vipp bin joyful" says Hirst.
