Through a focus on elevating ritual experiences and the importance of a time-wearing endurance, VOLA’s Brushed Gold range captures the essence of luxury. Heightening the everyday, the tactile and textural considerations of the finish are intended to enrich the spaces they inhabit.

Inspired by the importance of sensory engagement with space, VOLA’s Brushed Gold range captures a heightened experiential quality that connects luxury and design. Extending from the original inception of the brand in 1968 and an exploration of how design inspires advancement, the focus on how colour, shape and finish can affect space has been carefully carried through as a core ethos since. Founder Verner Overgaard and architect Arne Jacobsen believed in the simplicity of the considered and that through focusing on the functional elements of a piece and the modernist sensibilities of the time, their designs would continue to remain relevant. The launch of VOLA’s first 111 tap sees these core principles underpin every progression and innovation, ensuring the legacy of Verner Overgaard and Arne Jacobsen’s design ethos continues to this day.

It is in the engagement with objects that bring nourishment and add to convenience of the everyday that reinforce a deep connection to nature and the need to engage with natural elements within the built world.

The selection of fittings within any architecturally conceived space reflect the larger ideas of how the home, workplace, retail or hospitality space is intended to feel. In both concealment and placement in full sight, the vessels that connect the human experience with water are a reminder of our advancement. It is in the engagement with objects that bring nourishment and add to convenience of the everyday that reinforce a deep connection to nature and the need to engage with natural elements within the built world. As part of a modular system that allows customisation, VOLA offers an endless combination of handles, spouts, cover plates, handles and accessories that add both personality and allow for personalisation at the same time.

As a known symbol of luxury, gold universally epitomises quality. The Brushed Gold range leverages perceptions of an elevated refinement and through an engineered solution offers a finish that matches its perceived endurance. While colours and finishes can help mould a space, they also help elicit the moods and behaviours of those within them, as they experience them first-hand. Through a heightening of the tactile and textural participation with such commonly used elements, that same sense of elevated engagement can be attributed.

Through an understanding of the importance of how each element within our spaces affects experience, VOLA’s Brushed Gold is conceived as a facilitator of joy and a reinforcement of strength. Though the daily rituals can feel repetitive, through engaging the senses and a heightening of detail, important connections with the natural can be reinforced in all of our spaces.
