Vita Copenhagen is moving into furniture

For the first time since the start in 2008, Vita Copenhagen is now adding furniture and accessories to their range of lighting design: The Furniture Feelings Collection.

Versatile, flexible and multifunctional, this collection is designed for packing the most into life in smaller spaces. With clean lines, strong graphical elements and a focus on details, the Furniture Feelings range of Scandinavian design uses clever pack­aging solutions to reduce the effects of transportation on the environment, without compromising on materials or design principles.

One of the first pieces is The Reader armchair. The armchair’s special curved shell is inspired by traditional Danish crafting techniques and helps to reduce surrounding noise, offering a place of shelter and reflection.

With its light form and bold organic curves, The Reader is a standout design piece in any setting and just right for enjoying a good book or engaging conversation.

Functional and sturdy, the angle between the Reader’s seat and back rest has been designed to ensure maximum comfort. The armchair’s spacious seat has plenty of room for sitting in different positions, whether curled up with your legs or fully stretched out.

The Reader’s solid oak frame gives the armchair a warm natural character. A carefully selected palette of Scandinavian colours has been chosen for the upholstery to compliment the natural wood of the oak.

The upholstery itself is easily replaceable with interchangeable cushions letting you decide when you want to change and update the armchair’s look. The shape of the cushions have been designed to slightly expose the armchair’s shell, placing an extra focus on the wooden details.

The armchair is also ideal in a hotel foyer, lobby or reception area in places where you want to feel part of the room but also feel that you have your own space.

- As a young boy I helped out at a workshop in my home town where they were making boats out of curved veneer. Just the feeling of that was totally special and I realised the great skill that was needed to make it happen. One of the things that I was focused on at the beginning was making a comfortable armchair that closes out the noise of those around you a little bit without making you feel isolated. Going into your own little space but kind of focusing in a way where you can be yourself. Something that makes room for silence and sitting relaxed in a chair and enjoying yourself. I think the wings around your head really help so that everything behind you is away from you, says designer Tor Hadsund.
