VOLA belongs to the generation of design icons from the Golden Age of Danish Design.
The first VOLA taps and mixers were designed in 1968 by the Danish architect and designer Arne Jacobsen. 2008 VOLA celebrated its 40 years on the market by launching new products under the headline Celebrating continuity Celebrating change.
Aesthetics, wellness and individuality describe the trends of a modern bath room. A new trend is to combine the bathroom and bedroom into one room. Often the bath tub is placed in the best position in the room perhaps with a view to the outside. The VOLA FS family is made for this kind of environment. In 2007 a new bath filler, VOLA FS1 was launched and won the GOOD DESIGN Award 2007 presented by The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Design and Architecture and was nominated for the German Designpreis 2009.
In 2009 VOLA presented the new FS2 mixer and FS3 shower as an evolution of its
Free-standing family – the new interpretation of the VOLA Classic style and concept, designed especially for the modern bathroom.
VOLA FS2 is a mixer for freestanding washbasin. The exceptionally tall, slender spout frees up ample space avoiding overexposure of a single item in the interior design. The ergonomic lever handle features the iconic and particularly striking VOLA classic design. Its upright design gives the fittings a very slim and elegant energy adding to the beauty of any freestanding washbasin.
The new freestanding shower system FS3 with thermostat embodies the VOLA character in its purest form; concise, slender, sculptured design. It is distinguished by its modern and geometrical shape, which is sure to inspire all purist VOLA followers In its function the new FS3 mimics natural rain fall but unlike nature, the intensity and temperature of the curtains of water can be easily adjusted. FS3 won the GOOD DESIGN Award 2009 presented by The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Design and Architecture.
The new head shower VOLA 080ST launched 2010 is a variant of VOLA FS3 to be combined with the VOLA built-in range.
Like the FS1, the new free-standing products were designed by Aarhus Arkitekterne A/S. All fittings come either in chrome, brushed chrome or brushed stainless steel. With their new FS family products VOLA conceives the modern bathroom as an active spa and a new path into the wellness world.
