Parisian retail darling Colette and Danish design manufacturer Vipp once again join forces by inviting regular conspirator Craig Redman and his monocled, egg-shaped alter-ego Darcel to reinterpret a series of classic Vipp products.
The Australian-born designer Craig Redman's cynical and hilarious one-eyed creature (shown above) lives online at ‘Darcel Disappoints’ in a chronicle of the ups and downs of everyday life in New York City.
Now, Darcel is unfolding his colorful cartoonish creativity onto two of Vipp’s iconic products; the Vipp pedal bin created in 1939 and its companion, the toilet brush.
"I think the juxtaposition between Darcel's sense of humor, colette's taste and vibrancy, and Vipp's high quality products make for a great combo. And I really need a new toilet brush." - Craig Redman
The 4 liter Vipp pedal bin and toilet brush are available in a limited edition with a splash of Darcel’s cartoonish universe exclusively in colette and at colette.fr from June.
Price for the set: 400 Euro / $525
