Designed in 1968, the first VOLA mixer, the 111, is the essence of Arne Jacobsen’s pared back form, a circle within a circle, bisected by a simple line
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 exposed, for the time a completely new concept.
Through his work, Arne Jacobsen left his mark on generations of architects and thus helped build a special Scandinavian architectural tradition that is characterised by exemplary thoroughness from the general to the very specific. Very few Danes have achieved the broad international fame of Arne Jacobsen, who today stands for some of the best works produced in the 20th century, with an inherent quality that has ensured their sustainability into the new millennium.
The Vola Arne Jacobsen KV8 Built in Basin Tap is available in brushed stainless steel, high polished chrome, brushed chrome, natural brass and 14 bright colours.
