About Morten Bo Jensen

Morten Bo Jensen

Morten Bo Jensen is Chief Designer at family-owned Vipp. Vipp’s story began in 1939, when Danish metalsmith Holger Nielsen (1915-1990) designed a functional and handsome pedal bin for his wife Marie’s hairdressing salon. Intended as a one-off, the bin attracted the attention of many of Marie’s salon clients, who were the wives of doctors and dentists. Believing it would be ideal for their husbands’ clinics, a pedal bin star was then born. Holger would often say that ‘good design never goes out of fashion’, and it’s a philosophy that Vipp has honoured to this day.
