VOLA blends freedom, aesthetics and wellness in their new free-standing range. Aesthetics, wellness and individuality describe the trends of a modern bath room. A new trend is to combine the bathroom and bedroom into one room. Often the bath tub is placed in the best position in the room perhaps with a view to the outside. The VOLA FS family is made for this kind of environment.
In 2007 a new bath filler, VOLA FS1 was launched and won the GOOD DESIGN Award 2007 presented by The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Design and Architecture and was nominated for the German Designpreis 2009. In 2009 VOLA presented the new FS2 mixer and FS3 shower as an evolution of its Free-standing family – the new interpretation of the VOLA Classic style and concept, designed especially for the modern bathroom.
The new freestanding shower system FS3 with thermostat embodies the VOLA character in its purest form; concise, slender, sculptured design. It is distinguished by its modern and geometrical shape, which is sure to inspire all purist VOLA followers In its function the new FS3 mimics natural rain fall but unlike nature, the intensity and temperature of the curtains of water can be easily adjusted. FS3 won the GOOD DESIGN Award 2009.
