Toothbrush Holder Vipp 7 - Toothbrush holder with a two-room insert. Soft rubber base protects surfaces. All rubber parts are dishwasher safe.
Vipp is founded in 1939 by Holger Nielsen. Born in 1915 in the small Danish town of Randers, Holger trains as a metal spinner.
Holger Nielsen makes the leap into business at the age of only 17 and almost by coincidence. It all begins one spring Sunday in May 1931 when he makes his usual visit to the local stadium to support his favorite football team. Fate has it that his ticket is drawn in a raffle, and he wins a car. Holger loves cars, but as he has no driver's license, he decides to sell the car and invest the money in a metal turning lathe.
This marks the birth of Holger Nielsen's metal factory where, a few years later, he produces the very product that will go on to bring him fame: the Vipp pedal bin.
Holger Nielsen passes away in 1992, aged 78. A man with conservative views, he would never have imagined one of his daughters taking over Vipp. So when Holger's wife Marie is left with both her hairdressing salon and Vipp to run, she is ready to sell Holger's factory. However, Jette Egelund, the couple's youngest daughter, cannot bear to see her father's life's work disappear. At the last moment she decides to take over the company. Vipp now becomes a second-generation family business.
