The famous Vola series was created in the late 1960s when factory-owner Verner Overgaard contacted Arne Jacobsen to present a proposal for wall-mounted mixer taps and accessories. Arne Jacobsen had recently won the design competition for the new national bank, and the bank was the first place where Vola was installed. Since then, the series has received several design awards, and today, the simple, streamlined design is known around the world.
In 1969, the company was called I.P. Lunds Eftf. Today, it is called Vola, named after the series. Arne Jacobsen’s employee Teit Weylandt was involved in the project from the outset, and after Arne Jacobsen’s death in 1971, he has been involved in designing new components for the series, based on the original design.
