We are stepping up the product releases this year – starting with two brand new family members that embody the interior design trends for 2016. Meet the VITA Ripples and VITA Acorn families.
Covered by an innovative silicone layer, the new VITA Ripples family delivers the beautiful appearance of porcelain, the soft and fascinatingly smooth finish of seashells and it tops it off with unseen sturdiness.
Alluring glass reflections, raw metallic accents and contrasting smooth silicone – all of them are interlacing in perfect harmony in our new and dashing VITA Acorn family.
The new beautiful array of VITA Idea light bulbs is ready to perfectly compliment any of our lampshades. The trendy exposed filament bulbs will add unique character to the lamp design.

What makes a house a home? For some, it is that peaceful, blissful silence they get after a hectic day, for others it is that warm, cozy place where they feel safe and where they connect with the people they love. It is the luring smell of freshly baked bread, the big collection of books or vintage records laying on the floor, the adorable pet sneaking onto the couch, or the traditions they have with the beloved ones.
Home is wherever your happiness is; home is wherever you gather friends and family around the dining table to share smiles and joy, to collect beautiful stories and create memorable experiences. The Clava Dine is more than a lampshade – it is a lampshade with a purpose: to bring that cozy feeling to the dinner table.
Built on the success gained by VITA Clava, a small and chic lampshade with retro hints, perfect for beautiful clusters, Clave Dine is its bigger sister that shares the same exquisite design. With a graceful silhouette, and a raw metallic finish, Clava Dine makes a stylish and stunning statement, while having a discreet exclusive look. The small symmetric holes around the lampshade gently diffuse an ambient light, while also creating a directional downward light to any modern space. The lamp comes in matte white, brushed brass, brushed copper and polished steel, to match any place in your home, be it above the cosy coffee table or the big dining table.
Curious to know how it will fit your home? Just try our VITA Unfold at Home App, an augmented reality app that allows you to see how the VITA lampshades look in your home before buying them. You will be able to select different sizes, colours or designs. The app is available for download for free, and Clava Dine found its place on the app’s “shelf”, together with the other VITA “gems”.
And when you decide to welcome a Clava Dine in your home, don’t forget its “magic power” – to gather the special people in your life around the dining table and to help you “knit” beautiful memories and big dreams. Love it as much as we do!
At VITA, we are all about design. About warm functionality and natural aesthetics. About clean lines, subtle beauty and elegant craftsmanship. We are and have always been about Danish design in a new light. VITA has been growing and changing a lot over the past seven years – from beautifully sculptured lamps, to creating a feeling of belonging, a more immersive experience, rethinking the way you live with light. Keeping the same passionate core, we are moving even closer to our urban roots by introducing our new company name – VITA copenhagen.
Our new identity reflects more closely the essence of our designs and our distinctive and inclusive way of being proud of our heritage. We are deeply rooted in the urban landscape not only through our headquarters’ location in the heart of Copenhagen, the capital of Scandinavian design, but also through the simplicity and beauty of our products, drawing their inspiration from the spectacular nature surrounding this city. Adding “copenhagen” to our name feels like a natural change, one that we are very excited to share.
We have changed our name a bit. But not a single bit of our all-time passion – the commitment to delight you with even more exquisite designs, to break new ground and pave new ways in lighting design, and to remain true to our deep care for the environment.
Gradually, throughout our website and social media channels, you will notice that we will be changing the information about our new name, and you will discover a fresh new look too. Stay with us, we will have plenty of good news for you in the coming months!
Our very first limited edition!
In a stunning golden finish, Silvia Gold celebrates the 5 year anniversary of one of our most successful families – the VITA Silvia family. The stylish Silvia lamp is already a classic. Inspired by nature and with its characteristic triangular, organic shaped blades, Silvia was designed in 2010, and soon it became not only a best seller but also an iconic Danish design.
To celebrate its success and anniversary, we launched our very first limited edition – the VITA Silvia Gold. This eye-catching lampshade delivers a warm and glare-free light. Because the light bulb isn’t visible from any angle, it is perfect for any height and any place in a home, either as a pendant, a floor or a table lamp. The elegant and exquisite colour of Silvia Gold makes it the “pièce de résistance” of any interior décor, and a “must-have” for the Christmas season.
Do you want to know how it will look in your home? Try VITA Unfold at Home App, an augmented reality app that allows you to place and visualize how VITA lampshades, including Silvia Gold, appear in any physical space. The app is available for download in the App Store, for iPhones and iPads, and it is offered free of charge.
At VITA, we believe that every home deserves the best lighting design. For us, a lampshade is more than a nice fixture that provides light whenever it is dark. For us, a lampshade is an accessory that compliments a home, tells a story about it, and adds a bit of charm. It gives it character and personality.
We think that home is wherever our VITA lamps shine, and that is why we want all our beautiful lampshades to belong to a space and to give it an identity; to be part of the family and to fit in. We want our lamps to be the perfect match for any home.
We have been asked several times why most of our lamps are white, and if we could add some colourful touches to some of them. We love our white lampshades as much as we love the ones with different colour finishes, and that is why we have a diverse array of colours, sizes and shapes. But since there are millions of colours in this world and since each interior décor is unique, how would you choose the perfect colour for your home?
It’s a good question with an even better answer – you first make sure that you have your favourite white VITA lampshade in your home. Would you like to shine a subtle purple light tonight? Or maybe a fresh green or a playful orange one? Just add a colourful light bulb and you will have a different lampshade in no time. And if you are not sure what colour to choose, take a smart multi-coloured lightbulb, that lets you pick and instantly change the colour shades of the light.
Our friends from LIFX, a company that produces WiFi enabled LED bulbs, were curious to see what our beautiful white lampshades would look like in a colourful palette. They paired their bulbs to our VITA Conia and VITA Eos and started “playing” with 16 million different colour shades. The result was mesmerizing! And because exciting news need to be shared, we are sharing this Photo Gallery with you, if you need a bit of colour and inspiration for your interior design.

At VITA, we are all about Danish design. About simplicity and beauty. About seeing things in a different light. We see life in colours, shapes and stories – the stories our lamps tell. The stories about the hearts and souls behind the designs. The stories about the feelings and emotions they convey, and the way they personalize your space. The stories about the places you put them, the stories about your home.
We think that home is wherever our VITA lamps shine, and that is why we want them to tell stories, to belong to a space and to give it an identity; to be part of the family and to fit in. Thus, we found a way to make sure that our lamps and your home are always a perfect fit – a match made in heaven. VITA heaven.
We took our dream to let you visualize any VITA lampshade in your home, added a bit of augmented reality ”magic”, lots of passion and heaps of dedication from VITA Design Team. We put it all together and we have created our new VITA Unfold at Home app.
Now, you can virtually place all the VITA lamps regardless of the physical space. You can unfold them in your own home or wherever you feel like trying out our collection of lampshades. Simply download and install the VITA Unfold at Home app from the App Store. Browse through our products, choose a lampshade family and decide on size, colour and accessories.
Our augmented reality app takes advantage of your phone or tablet's camera in order to display how the lamp will look in the spot where you're considering adding a beautiful VITA piece. You can then save the pictures to your photo folder, add them to your favourites, or share them on your favourite social media platforms. The app lets you experience any of our lampshades in the context of your own space, making sure that your favourite VITA lamp shines exactly where you want to shed some light.
Since good things come in pairs, we will be releasing soon the Android version of the VITA Unfold at Home app. Until then, search for VITA Unfold at Home or VITA lighting in the App Store and start unfolding our beautiful collection of lampshades on your iPhone or iPad!
