Getama launches Vita for two

The Vita-sofa is small, light and fresh in its shape, with its organic shell that seems to float on an exposed frame in oak

Vita was designed by Nanna and Jørgen Ditzel in 1952 as a three-seater, but the couple also had a dream to launch it in a two-seater. A dream that the Danish furniture manufacturer Getama now realizes in collaboration with their daughter Dennie Ditzel.

With its rounded shell that almost hangs on an exposed frame of black stained oak, the back is broken up by two rows of buttons, with the padding being repeated from the sofa seat. With Vita for two, Vita can now meet the growing demand for lighter and smaller sofas, suitable for both private homes and government offices, receptions and restaurants.

Organic modernism
Vita was designed from the concept of "Organic Modernism" that the couple's good friend Finn Juhl had introduced them to, and they paid tribute and let themselves be inspired by.

Nanna and Jørgen Ditzels sofa was and is to this day innovative in its form and in its construction with the rounded shell on an exposed Oak frame and the platform-like openness, while maintaining comfort.

"If you only do what you are sure of, you will of course go nowhere". The quote is by Nanna Ditzel and describes well how she constantly sought new avenues in her efforts to shape and design. Nanna and her husband, Jørgen Ditzel, wanted to get away from the known, they would challenge each other in the way you draw and use furniture. The boundaries were broken down, and they continually were throughout their partnership.
