    Part of the Danish, family-run design firm Vipp, CEO Kasper Egelund lives a stone’s throw from Copenhagen in the leafy neighbourhood of Søvang, with his wife Heidi and their three children Mie, Karla and Otto.

    Nestled on the edge of the Baltic sea, Kasper and his family enlisted the talent of architect Mads Lund and interior architect Studio David Thulstrup to build their five-bedroom modernist villa. A core design element is the floor-to-ceiling glazing throughout the home ensuring the surrounding seascape and its definitive seasons inform the home’s interior.

    The kitchen comprises of a VIPP Kitchen module in black, with two VIPP Kitchen Taps. The VIPP Pendant Light hangs gracefully over the island benchtop.

    Where is your home located and what do you love most about your neighbourhood?

    Kasper Egelund: We live in Dragør; a small, quiet suburb of Copenhagen. It’s a place by the sea and close to nature. The best part is the bicycle route to work – 18 km in pure nature without any cars. It’s the perfect start to the day and on the way home, it gives you time to reflect on the day, clear your head and listen to some good podcasts.

    How is your home a reflection of you and your family?

    Kasper Egelund: It reflects simplicity. With three kids, we need to keep things neat and simple. The open spaces hopefully symbolise inclusivity for anyone visiting.

    How would you describe your personal interior style?

    Kasper Egelund: Simple and classic with a twist of colour, texture and design pieces. In the main living space, windows fill this area with an abundance of natural light which is important to us, since we really embrace nature.

    How does your home inspire you and the work you do?

    Kasper Egelund: Working with design every day, I use and test a lot of our own designs which provides me with insight and inspiration. The value of a Vipp product is measured on how happy people are using it in their daily life; and by using them myself, I’m more aware.

    Which space of your home do you gravitate most to and why?

    Kasper Egelund: The kitchen. This is where the family comes together, and the kitchen island makes room for everyone to attend the preparation of a meal. We have just installed the new Vipp sofa in the kitchen, which is a comfortable seating spot and gives the space a new dimension.

    Whic space do you like to relax in?

    Kasper Egelund: I like to read books and newspapers in the evening on the sofa next to my bookshelf. It is my quiet moment when the rest of the family is asleep and I can look out to the ocean.

    What are your favourite personal possessions?

    Kasper Egelund: The built-in bookshelf. I love reading.

    What makes your house a home?

    Kasper Egelund: The fact that it’s ours. The combination of location, the exterior architecture and interior arrangement makes it unique to us.
