This fall, let’s fall in love! Let’s fall in love with bold colors, seductive shapes, and refined materials; with geometric patterns, edgy lines, and delicate contours. These are the key concepts of our new line of lighting designs, an endeavor into past, present, and future; into new materials, innovative technologies, and reinvented constructions.
AIM FOR THE STARS WITH VITA ASTERIA
Born at the crossroads of design, technology, and craftsmanship, VITA Asteria echoes a design from the future and for the future. This lampshade incorporates built-in LED technology in a sleek, minimalist shape. It embodies the perfect blend of straight masculine lines and a graceful feminine silhouette, of a hi-tech look with a cozy vibe.
Casting a bright, lively light, VITA Asteria comes in a seductive and trendy six-color palette to match and complement any interior design, from a contemporary or high design décor to a futuristic or even retro one. Choose between pearl white, petrol blue, forest green, ruby red, saffron yellow, or anthracite grey. Place it above the coffee table or dinner table; its slim shape will ensure that nothing is obscuring the view of guests sitting opposite you, and its diffused light will ensure a blind-free glow.
“The illusion of earthly weightlessness had to be challenged by a light design that defies gravity. Today’s LED technology makes for thinner and smaller lighting fixtures, but they still have to resemble a lampshade. The VITA Asteria is just so—slim and simple, a stroke of light hovering above, a touch of the future and yes, breath-taking, like stars in space!” explains Soren Ravn Christensen, founder and Chief Creative Developer.
EXPLORE LIFE AND NATURE WITH VITA ALUVIA
Start your journey from the depths of the oceans, to the bustling city, passing through the enchanting forests, all in one eclectic product—this is the quintessence of VITA Aluvia.
Its characteristic geometrical blades are made from aluminum, giving the VITA Aluvia a distinctive edge, while making it lightweight and durable at the same time. Choose between subtle pearl or vibrant anthracite, and one of the two sizes available, mini and medium. VITA Aluvia is meant to amplify the beauty of your interior design, making your home cozy, classic, and refined, while also bringing a touch of nature.
“Imagine if flowers could light up. They would create the most playful dancing shadows, spinning around and making everything come to life! VITA Aluvia embodies just that – nature’s magic in your home,” adds Soren Ravn Christensen.
FIND THE BETTER HALF WITH VITA EOS UP
Half the size of the iconic VITA Eos lampshade and the better half of any wall or ceiling. This is the new VITA Eos Up, the perfect companion for small spaces in need of big designs.
Made from all-natural goose feathers, this lampshade gives a soft, warm light that adds a sophisticated and elegant touch to any interior décor. Its ingenious construction makes it easy to be mounted directly on the ceiling or on a wall.
“Lacking space? Whether it’s in width or height, you need light to make your small areas come to life. It should be soft yet full of light creating small glowing dots on walls and in ceilings making the Eos Up the answer to big designs in small places,” concluded Soren Ravn Christensen.
It’s about special things intermingling with the expected, and human discoveries sparking from the surroundings. Think about a champagne glass, and elegant lights on a tree. What do they have in common? Straight and curved lines, style and glamour, all arising from nature. These are the key concepts for our new line of accessories, faithful to our core values.
SEIZE THE FESTIVE VIBE WITH VITA CHAMPAGNE
Imagine a pendant light… upside down, raising delicately from the floor. This is the special power of the VITA Champagne! Inspired by the delicate glamour of a Champagne glass, this stylish floor stand was designed to be an elegant accompaniment to everyday celebrations.
VITA Champagne’s simple and smooth shape is “spiced up” by the stainless-steel pull switch, adding a distinctive edge to its clean, minimalistic lines. Available in both black and white, this sturdy floor stand can be paired with either a stunning lampshade or with just a trendy light bulb. Its visually “silent” expression will bring the best out of your light, perfectly blending with any interior design elements in a home.
How’s the VITA Champagne seen through the eyes of its designer? "Through all the glitter and glamour of a festive occasion, there’s always the one that, with quiet grace and elegance, draws our eyes—without even trying," explains Anders Klem.
LET'S MEET UNDER THE VITA WILLOW
Have you ever dreamed about lampshades hanging from a tree? How many years would it take for them to grow in a home? This is the special power of the VITA Willow! Inspired by the alluring elegance of the willow trees, this wall accessory was designed for all those design aficionados looking for a stylish way to mount a pendant light in that perfect spot on a wall.
VITA Willow boasts a subtle yet sturdy design emphasized by its lightweight and durable aluminum composition.

Light travels quickly, extraordinary designs stand.
Let’s admit it—we live in a world that is changing faster than ever before. We make fast changes, take quick decisions, do multiple things at the same time and adapt accordingly. We expect our surroundings to do the same. We change places or homes, we change interior decors and decorations. Multi-functionality has become increasingly valued.

Sometimes, things need to be smaller, sometimes bigger. Some other times it is a matter of finding the right size in between. That is why we are introducing the VITA Eos large light brown. It is the newest addition to our VITA Eos light brown family, complementing the medium and extra-large versions.
Inspired by the earth tones of the Nordic landscape, the VITA Eos light brown creates an embracing warmth with its subtle seductiveness. A solid color for a feathery lampshade—while the color brings you down to earth, the feathers will lift your senses.
Creating a feeling of calmness, this is not only a seductive neutral color but also a practical one. The VITA Eos light brown is the perfect match for modern interior décors, adding a sensual and warm touch. It will bring a distinctive sense of comfort and elegance to your space, whether in a contemporary living room or in a classic bedroom.
The VITA Eos large is now available in three different colors: light brown, white and light grey. Not so big, not so small, all sophisticated and stylish.
Finding a lampshade that fits your home and your personality at the same time can be a challenge sometimes. With a wide array of options comes a wide array of decisions to make. We can save you some time!

At VITA copenhagen, we are all about light. And why wouldn’t we be? Lux est VITAe essentia (Light is essential to life). That is why our newest designs, VITA Alva, VITA Shade and the new VITA Idea, are a tribute to light and a celebration of its beauty.
To get the perfect light, you need the perfect shade. The VITA Shade is meant to do just that! This design piece combines aesthetics with functionality and ensures a simple, useful accessory for the lightbulb. Used on a pendant bulb or tripod, the VITA Shade will help you adjust the direction and amount of light, while shielding any unwanted glare. All you have to do is fine-tune the position of the VITA Shade on the lightbulb. What bulb would be the best companion? The VITA Idea 1.5W 49 inch.
With a focus on both the environment and the quality of light, we have just introduced the Idea 1.5W 49 inch bulb, a smart LED A+ lightbulb that pays tribute to the beautiful and simple design of the original Thomas Edison lightbulb. After all, 2017 marks the 170 years’ anniversary of Edison’s birth. Offering a warm, soft light that powers on immediately when it is turned on, this decorative bulb has a high color rendering index to mimic the vivid light found in nature. As we mentioned, we are starting this year in a new light. A celebration of light, that is!
Resembling the gentle nut, and with a classy and exclusive look, the VITA Acorn, introduced in a black finish top in 2016, has quickly become one of the most sough-after designs. The VITA Acorn with a white finish top, compliments this family of lampshades, adding an extra touch of variety. The VITA Acorn combines a trendy glass look, raw metallic accents and a soft silicone finish, in a perfect harmony.
Adding a unique character to the lamp design, the small VITA Idea exposed filament bulb was designed to put the Acorn lampshade in the best light, by offering a warm and soft light. The chic and dashing VITA Acorn would fit perfectly in a small, stylish room, but it can also be used in beautiful clusters in bigger spaces.
“The story behind Acorn is that I wanted to design a small and simple lamp. I was working with different elements but wasn't happy with the shape at the time. I have always been inspired by nature and suddenly I realised that the elements I was designing to create beautiful lighting matched the shape and construction of an acorn. The Acorn lamp is not meant as a replica of a real acorn – what I really like is that you must use your imagination to 'discover' the likeness (unless you know it). I think it brings some excitement to the design.”, explained Jacob Rudbeck, VITA Acorn’s external designer.
Draw. Paint. Print. The iconic Silvia lampshade has become a creative canvas. Made of watercolor paper, the new VITA Silvia Create lets you imagine and customize your own lamp.
Interior designers and interior aficionados alike know that a lampshade is more than a nice fixture that provides light whenever it is dark. It is an accessory that complements a home, tells a story about it, and adds a bit of charm. What could it give more character and personality than your own creative touch?
With this thought in mind, we launched VITA Silvia Create. Just like the beloved VITA Silvia lampshade, the VITA Silvia Create is made of individual “leaves” that are assembled into a beautiful glare-free light. The VITA Silvia Create’s special watercolor paper leaves let you express your artistic side and paint, draw, or print your favorite pattern on each leaf. From acrylic paint to water-based markers or spray paint, a vast array of painting materials can be used. In addition, ready-made templates can be downloaded and printed directly onto the lamp’s leaves. To further foster your creativity, all templates can be used as coloring spaces, giving a whole new dimension to the VITA Silvia Create’s potential. If your imagination can’t fit on a lamp only, then we’ve got you covered—just order some new watercolor leaves, and be ready to unleash your artistic side.
Whether drawing, coloring, painting, or printing on the new VITA Silvia Create, the result is striking—a personalized VITA Silvia lampshade with a one-of-a-kind story and a distinctive identity. Because good news come in pairs, we are introducing #MySilviaCreate—a virtual creative space where you can share your VITA Silvia Create designs and find inspiration from other creative minds.
That snowflake landing in your palm on a crisp winter day. That smell of the spring blossoming flowers. That seashell you still keep to remind you of summer. That sound of rustling leaves in the autumn breeze. Life is made of moments; it’s made of all those small things that make the moments big. And this is what VITA Eos Micro echoes: Enjoy the little things in life–they make the moments big!
With its ‘petite’ allure and cute charm, the new VITA Eos Micro is the smallest version of the VITA Eos family of lampshades. Don’t be tricked by its dainty look–this goose feathers lampshade is definitely a big design, perfect for making a subtle statement, yet a lasting image about any interior décor.
“Not only that the now famous Eos feather lamp is the proof of how tactile products can make a difference, but by making the Eos lamp tiny, small and round, the Eos Micro becomes even more cuddly, so you just have to touch and hold it in your arms. Place it anywhere close by and it can provide you with just the right ambience and coziness for your romantic evening. It's instant love!”, thinks Soren Ravn Christensen, Founder and Chief Creative Developer, and the designer behind the VITA Eos lampshade family.
An epitome of beauty and elegance, the VITA Eos Micro will be an enchanting centerpiece on the coffee table or desk, as well as a great addition to any cozy corner or little space missing a distinctive look. For a creative and playful touch, the VITA Eos Micro lamps can be used in exquisite pairs, or they could be mixed and matched with different other sizes and colors of the VITA Eos lampshade family to obtain beautiful decorative clusters.
See, touch, feel, embrace. It’s easy to let your mind wander and your eyes undulate to the rhythm of the Sine, a lampshade designed to lure and engage your senses.
Combining a fascinating shape with a seductive material, the VITA Sine is the newest design from VITA copenhagen. Its harmonious organic pattern contrasts symmetry and asymmetry, dark and light, grey and white, ups and downs, creating a remarkably different look depending on the angle from which it’s viewed, and imprinting an apparent motion and a dynamic vibe to the lamp. “This timeless contemporary piece is reminiscent of the perpetual oscillation of a smooth sine wave. Depending on the position of the observer, the shape of the lamp constantly alternates between symmetry and asymmetry, making it seem alive.”, explains Miklos Leits, the designer behind the VITA Sine lampshade.
The tactile sense is as much delighted as the sight sense. The smooth layer of felt conveys a distinctive character and creates a cozy feel, evocative of the Nordic style and philosophy. Exquisite, intrinsically simple, yet with an attitude twist, the VITA Sine comes as a flat-packed lampshade that can be assembled without glue or any tools. Hidden zippers along the edges transform the 2-D flat geometric shapes into a stunning 3-D silhouette.
VITA Sine’s aesthetics are only matched by the warm and diffused light it offers. “The VITA Sine lamp was designed with the intention of preventing unpleasant glare from the light source, therefore the light bulb is fully embraced by the interlocking light diffuser plates, lending an extraordinary softened light to any space. Because of its subdued and sleek shape, the lamp is meant to complement a wide range of interior styles.”, concludes Miklos Leits. With an exclusive, yet playful design, and a completely glare-free glow, this lampshade can be placed in any spot, in any environment. All you have to do is to see, touch, feel, love.
