How to get more out of your lighting

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.

How about having designs that are able to change as quickly as you want them to? With this thought in mind, we have focused on creating stylish and functional designs that can serve multiple purposes. Most of our lampshades are a 2-in-1 or even 3-in-1 lampshades. Take, for example, the iconic VITA Eos lampshade. Made from all natural goose feathers, this exquisite fixture can be used as a ceiling lamp or mounted on a table lamp or floor lamp base.
The versatile nature of VITA Conia, or VITA Carmina means it can be used as a pendant, a floor or table lamp, and it can also be flipped around. Three different ways to re-purpose your lampshade and give your interior design a fresh touch.

The multi-functionality of our designs doesn’t stop at lampshades only. With an ingenious construction, the VITA Tripod Base is an adjustable 2-in-1 tripod. Its elegant and sturdy aluminum legs can be placed either in a ‘low’ or in a ‘high’ position, making it a versatile design for multiple lamps and purposes.

A Celebration of Light—VITA Shade and VITA Idea

 

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!

Meet the new VITA Acorn white!

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.

VITA Silvia Create – Don't draw on the table. Draw on the lamp!

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.

VITA Eos Micro–Enjoy the little things in life

 

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.

VITA Sine- A perpetual dance of symmetry and asymmetry

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.

It’s all about that VITA Tripod Base


Batman had Robin. Sherlock Holmes had Dr. Watson. VITA lampshades have VITA Tripods. Everyone needs a great companion and that perfect match. With this thought in mind, we designed the VITA Tripod Base, the newest addition to our tripods collection.

It’s all about flexibility

The VITA Tripod Floor and the VITA Tripod Table let you turn any lampshade into a floor or table lamp in just seconds. But how about that lampshade you want to have on the floor or that tiny lamp that needs a ‘petite’ tripod? The VITA Tripod Base is just the answer! With an ingenious construction, the VITA Tripod Base is an adjustable 2-in-1 tripod. Its elegant and sturdy legs can be placed either in a ‘low’ or in a ‘high’ position, making it a versatile design for multiple lamps and purposes. Twist, transform and be creative!

“Quite often, having secondary lighting close by and in places where you would like to have that tranquil flickering candlelight atmosphere, such as next to the bed, in the windowsill or on the carpet in the living room, is not possible for obvious hazard reduction reasons. The VITA Tripod Base solves these impediments and provides you with not just one very low position for holding your cozy light shade, but also another slightly higher position for putting on your desk, night stand or similar places. It's brilliant!”, explains Soren Ravn Christensen, Founder and Chief Creative Developer.

It’s all about design

The VITA Tripod Base combines its ingenious functionality with a bold and minimalistic design. The sleek and elegant look evokes the Scandinavian feel and aesthetics. Made of aluminum, and available in both a black and a white finish, the VITA Tripod Base offers great stability yet is light in weight. In a contemporary finish and a subtle industrial tone, this small and practical tripod becomes more than just an accessory for the lamp–the perfect match to light up that dark corner in the room.

Either in a living room, dining room, office or bedroom, the VITA Tripod will make a statement while bringing the best of any lampshade. Just decide if you want it ‘high’ or ‘low’, combine it with a beautiful lamp and let it shine!
