Vipp’s New Color of the Year: Copenhagen Green

The Vipp Annual Color 2012—Copenhagen Green—is a tribute to the Danish capital, which also happens to be Vipp’s hometown, and now the site of the company’s very first flagship store. The shade is derived from the many shades of green evident in the cityscape of historical architecture with oxidized copper roofs.

Three products are being produced in the new color in the US starting in February 2012: a soap dispenser, a toilet brush and pedal bins in three sizes. Meanwhile, you can still pick items in this year’s annual color (which, ironically, looks like this year’s Pantone Color of the Year).

Did you know that Vipp’s first pedal bin was designed back in 1939?
