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.
We planted some feathers in the ground during the winter. Watch the video and see what happened! On top of that, we’ve got an Idea!
We know you’ve been waiting for a couple of new Eos family members, and we are pleased to welcome the new VITA Eos mini and micro in light grey. You know what they say—Happiness is enjoying the little things in life, so embrace the newcomers!
We also mentioned an Idea. The new Idea LED 13W — our most powerful lightbulb and the brightest bulb of the Idea family. With a colour temperature of 4000K and an equivalent of 100W incandescent bulb power, it offers an energetic cool white light. The opal plastic diffuser adds character to its design and an extra dash of sturdiness.
The Idea 13W lightbulb is perfect for general, cool white lighting in any spaces, and it can be paired with a wide range of VITA lamps.
Emerge your surroundings in light, and don’t forget to enjoy the little things in life!
Sometimes, things need to be smaller, sometimes bigger. Some other times it is a matter of finding the right size in between. That is why we are introducing the VITA Eos large light brown. It is the newest addition to our VITA Eos light brown family, complementing the medium and extra-large versions.
Inspired by the earth tones of the Nordic landscape, the VITA Eos light brown creates an embracing warmth with its subtle seductiveness. A solid colour for a feathery lampshade—while the colour brings you down to earth, the feathers will lift your senses.
Creating a feeling of calmness, this is not only a seductive neutral colour but also a practical one. The VITA Eos light brown is the perfect match for modern interior décors, adding a sensual and warm touch. It will bring a distinctive sense of comfort and elegance to your space, whether in a contemporary living room or in a classic bedroom.
The VITA Eos large is now available in three different colours: light brown, white and light grey. Not so big, not so small, all sophisticated and stylish.
They say it is like a boomerang; that it could happen to every one of you; that it’s infectious, but doing it makes you feel good. What are we talking about? An act of kindness. A beautiful act of kindness that could change you and the world around you. It only takes one to help one. Today is Random Acts of Kindness Day and we want to share some kindness with you.
We hold a special competition on our Facebook page! Just write in the comments of the competition photo about an act of kindness you were inspired by and, optionally, nominate someone. You have time until Sunday!
Since it is a random act of kindness, we will randomly select one of you who will win an adorable VITA Eos medium white. If you nominate someone, they will also win an Eos medium white. Don’t forget to like our page and tell your friends. After all, kindness should deserve kindness!

Finding a lampshade that fits your home and your personality at the same time can be a challenge sometimes. With a wide array of options comes a wide array of decisions to make. We can save you some time!
If you like to dream…
There is a bit of a dreamer in all of us, and in some more than others. If you find yourself having your head in the clouds and daydreaming, then our Eos Collection will definitely put you on cloud nine! Made from all natural goose feathers and with a refined elegance, this lampshade provides soft, beautiful light, and it has a unique charm even when not illuminated.

If you like to explore…
Is curiosity your middle name? Than VITA Lora is the lamp for you! Marvel at its fascinating pattern and discover new shapes each time you admire it. Mesmerising and unusual, this “puzzle” lampshade can be used both as a pendant and as a floor lamp. If you are seeking new “light adventures”, pair this lamp with a colorful light bulb and get ready for a whole new setting to explore.
If you like nature…
There’s something almost magical about forests – the majestic trees and their leaves rustling in the wind, the blissful silence and the picturesque flora. Serene, mysterious and beautiful, forests conjure up images of fairy tales and enchantments. With a clear design reference to the alluring shape of pine cones, the VITA Conia lampshades will bring nature’s charm right into your home.
Are you fascinated by the mighty oak trees? Then the Acorn Pendant is the right shade for you!
If you like to be surprised…
Things don’t always look as they seem. If that prospect is something that entices you, then we have the perfect match – the VITA Ripples. Admire these chic lampshades from a distance and you will soon wonder if they are made of porcelain. Don’t be tricked, though, by their delicate appearance – they are actually covered by an innovative silicone layer, making them soft, sturdy and unbreakable. We told you that Ripples collection is perfect for someone who appreciates surprises!
If you like it a bit rough…
Clean lines and subtle tones are great in terms of design, but you are looking for more than that, right?! For you, it’s all about that special edge! With a graceful silhouette, yet a raw metallic finish, the VITA Clava Dine is the answer to your (light) wishes. This lampshade has a stylish and exclusive look and it adds a discreet industrial touch to any interior. Our Clava Dine comes in brushed brass, brushed copper, matte white and polished steel to complement any place in your home, either above the cosy coffee table or next to the large dining table.
If you like colours…
From soothing pastels to bright tones – you love them all! If you are crazy about colours, then one of the six lamps in the VITA Carmina collection is the ideal choice for you. Choose a Carmina Mini Sahara in a happy sunshine yellow tone or a Carmina Mini Azure or Turquoise for a brighter touch. If you are looking for a trendy color, then be certain to select the Carmina Mini Baby Rose or Misty Grey, two of the most sought-after colours of the year.
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.
Resembling the beautiful shape of the Edison lightbulb, The VITA Alva is a lampshade with a twist. The spiral shape of this alluring yet simple design seduces with its sinuous, curvy lines. Offering a lively gradient-effect glow, the VITA Alva fits into a wide range of interior decors, from an eclectic living room or kitchen, to a modern bedroom or bathroom. Best in pairs, these lampshades come in two different sizes and can be arranged in a straight line or in a cluster.
Sometimes, 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 3W 125 mm.
With a focus on both the environment and the quality of light, we have just introduced the Idea 3W 125 mm 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 colour 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!
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 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.
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. For creating playful clusters of two or three pendant lamps in a straight line or at different heights, the VITA Cannonball Cluster is the newest accessory from the company. Inspired by the perfectly round shape of a sphere, the VITA Cannonball Cluster is a discreet and organic silicone canopy created for hanging any pendant lights in an elegant way, and serving a double purpose: a loop-in lighting wiring system and a unique way to decorate the pendant cord.

Draw. Paint. Print. The iconic Silvia lampshade has become a creative canvas. Made of watercolour 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 watercolour paper leaves let you express your artistic side and paint, draw, or print your favourite 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 colouring 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 watercolour leaves, and be ready to unleash your artistic side.
Whether drawing, colouring, painting, or printing on the new VITA Silvia Create, the result is striking—a personalised 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.
Between the hottest trends and the enduring classics, you can find trendy and timeless colours, patterns, or shapes—those aspects of designs that will always be in vogue. A must-have for autumn/winter as well as a tone that will define next year, “brushed brass” is a sophisticated interior trend that never goes out of style—just like the VITA Silvia and VITA Conia designs. That is why it was only natural to add this elegant and refined touch of metallic shine to these two iconic designs.
Inspired by nature and with their characteristic organic, triangular-shaped blades, the VITA Silvia and VITA Conia lamps cast a warm and glare-free ambient light, making them artistic pieces to illuminate that special spot in a home. The stylish brushed brass colour confers a glamourous edge to the design and tells a “story” of authenticity and timelessness.
The VITA Silvia and VITA Conia’s new exquisite brass colour makes these lamps a must-have for the holiday season and the “stars” of any environment. They look stunning in a classic or traditional setting and, at the same time, they perfectly complement any contemporary or eclectic décors. The subtle brushed brass accents make the VITA Silvia and VITA Conia lamps stand out and bring all the other home decorations to life, elegantly enhancing each other while creating a sleek designer look.
Available in a mini and medium size, the brushed brass finish is an addition to the white, copper, and steel versions of the VITA Silvia lamp and to the white and copper versions of VITA Conia. These could be used either as pendants, floor lamps, or table lamps, making these lamps versatile design pieces. Because the light bulb is not visible from any angle, these stylish lampshades are perfect for any height and any place in a home.
