Danish design is about the enduring power of craft, style, sustainability and honest materials. For half a century, Vola has epitomised this approach, making taps, showers and accessories that combine simple, elegant shapes with innovation in form and function.
Vola has been involved in some of the world’s best-known contemporary buildings since 1968, when Vola owner Verner Overgaard invited celebrated architect Arne Jacobsen to collaborate. The result was the birth of the iconic Vola 111 shape, the company’s first product, designed for the National Bank of Denmark. It attracted immediate international acclaim, combining simple circular and linear forms with revolutionary plumbing hidden in its walls – Vola had, in fact, created the first fully integrated, single lever mixer tap. By setting this benchmark for minimal contemporary design and high standards of process and manufacturing, Vola is often imitated but never matched.
Today Vola products are internationally recognised as true design icons. For five decades, expert knowledge and specialist skills have come together to create and innovate. The company places such emphasis on craftsmanship and longevity that some of its earliest products are still fully operational today. Vola is both the original modern tap designer and a multi award-winning brand that brought contemporary Danish design to the home.
