The Tapware Originator
Vola is manufactured by Vola A/S, a well-established Danish company founded in 1873, owned and run by the Overgaard family.
Shortly after Arne Jacobsen won a competition in 1961 for his design of the National Bank of Denmark he was contacted by the owner of Vola A/S, Verner Overgaard who introduced his proposal for a new type of wall-mounted mixer tap. He imagined a design where all the mechanical parts of the mixer are hidden leaving only the handles and spout seen by the user. At the time this was a completely new concept, but Jacobsen realized that this idea combined with his functionalistic approach to design could be developed. With that basic principle in mind, the simple and concise Vola design was conceived in 1968.
Traditional Scandinavian craftsmanship and the most modern engineering technology ensures the highest standard of precision and quality finishing.
During Vola's 39 years of production, technical specifications have been constantly up-dated in order to meet the requirements of market and material changes. Any product developments have been made on the condition that the Vola design remains unchanged.
In 1995 Vola received the ID Classics Prize. This was awarded on the grounds that not only is Vola still in production but "as regards the idea, Vola looks exactly the same today as 38 years ago
Having stood the test of time, Vola continues to remain one of the most sought after design products worldwide.
