Beautifully Complete. Visibly Vola
VOLA perfection = aesthetics, harmony, innovation, functionality
VOLA‘s founder Verner Overgaard, introduced the idea of revealing only the elegant parts of a product to the user. His designs carefully hide the mechanical parts in the wall.
Each element in the VOLA Round Series relates in form and geometry to the other elements in the room. VOLA is only interested in perfection – that’s why they have released two more products in the award-winning Round Series
The electronic hands-free soap dispenser and cistern flush – designed by Aarhus Arkitekterne now make the washroom experience completely VOLA.
VOLA‘s new products take the Round Series one step further. The result = Innovation that is both functionally efficient and aesthetically pleasing.
So now the smartest corporate offices, restaurants, hotel foyers, museums, galleries and concert halls can offer their washroom visitors the total versatility of VOLA.
Totally VOLA: the complete washroom
Like the other elements, the electronic soap dispenser and cistern flush are built-in and beautifully aligned to the wall.
But they are also completely contact-free, using the latest technology to provide a totally clean and relaxing experience.
In a public space purity and hygiene are essential.
The Round Series for the luxury washroom already features the built-in waste bin and the built-in tissue dispenser.
Now together with the classic VOLA hands-free tap and electronic cistern flush, the new soap dispenser takes the outer circle as the core of its design and translates it into a highly innovative product.
The modular nature of the VOLA washroom means customers can combine any products – choosing their finish, colour and functional details – to create a co-ordinated and cohesive space.
The complete VOLA hands-free set of products is pure, compact, water-saving and effortlessly beautiful.
Electronic soap dispenser – RS10 hands-free soap dispenser
As a key element of the Round Series, the electronic soap dispenser is based on the soothing VOLA circle.
Echoing the other products, it is aligned to the wall and the circular rim is available in several finishes: polished chrome, brushed chrome, polished brass, stainless steel and 15 different colours.
However for VOLA aesthetic beauty is not enough, they take pride in functional innovation too.
Since VOLA is all about the customer, the dispenser illuminates on entry to welcome the user.
The electronic soap dispenser is available with either soft crème soap or foam.
For the crème soap option, there are four different pre-set soap volumes to cater for customer preference. The volume dispensed can be adjusted by maintenance staff.
The sensor response distance can be adjusted by maintenance staff with the simple turning of a screw.
The dispenser’s built-in design is space-saving and keeps the washroom spotless.
The soap dispenser is very easy to maintain. The refill bag (for foam soap) is simple to replace using a push release button.
Vola Hands-free tap
No VOLA washroom is complete without the legendary VOLA tap.
VOLA electronic taps and mixers for hands-free operation save water and secure high hygiene.And since evolution is part of Vola’s culture, they have redesigned the hands-free sensor to be aligned with the wall.
The new design is more responsive too. No sooner does it sense a hand under the tap than it activates the water flow.
The temperature is user-friendly from the start.
Round tissue dispenser and waste paper bin
The existing VOLA paper tissue dispenser, RS2 and waste bin, RS1 are important elements in the Round Series executive washroom.
The paper tissue dispenser’s circular rim encloses a cylinder holding the tissues. A concealed spring makes sure the tissues are always pushed to the front.
The unobtrusive waste bin is opened by gently pushing the front with a hand or knee. Its mechanism is smooth and silent. The bin is simple to empty and its built-in style makes cleaning effortless.
Hands-free cistern single or dual flush
Like the soap dispenser, the brand-new VOLA cistern flush is elegantly aligned to the wall and totally contact-free.
Two sensors, each contained in an understated circular design, sit side by side.
One for a full flush, the other for a water saving half flush – using the classic design language half circle. Alternatively, there is a single sensor option for full flush only.
Technically VOLA: simplicity itself
Since technical perfection is as important to VOLA as aesthetics, every detail is carefully thought through – ease of installation, hassle-free maintenance and the simple convenience of the visitor.
For more on installation and maintenance technical details and short videos are available from dedece.
VOLA innovation: a long tradition
VOLA takes pride in the continuity of their design language. But they also celebrate novelty and innovation with each new product.
More than forty-five years since the first VOLA tap was born, our designs are still receiving recognition from the industry.
Vola celebrates change & celebrates continuity.
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.
At the time this was a completely new concept, but Jacobsen realized that this idea combined with his functional approach to design could be developed.
With that basic principle in mind, it was conceived the simple and concise VOLA design that we know today was conceived.
Since Jacobsen’s death in 1971, Teit Weylandt, one of Arne Jacobsen’s former assistants, and later on the design department of Aarhus Arkitekterne A/S along with VOLA Director Carsten Overgaard continue to introduce new products into the world of the famous VOLA range.
Thus establishing VOLA as an international brand whilst keeping the original principles of excellent design and functionality.
