Product design: VITA Classical A1-D4 with Bleached Shades

The VITA classical shade is the recognized "original" in shade determination. For more than 50 years it has defined the standard in shade determination and has established itself as a reference system for the entire dental industry worldwide.

Because of new manufacturing requirements, the Meyer-Hayoz Design Engineering Group was commissioned to redesign the product. For us it was important both to preserve the traditional character of the existing color scheme and also to give the product a contemporary, quality look and feel in a subtle manner.

Through an intelligent design solution, the color scale can also be enhanced by the color group of the bleached shades. For this, our design team created adapters which are plugged sideways into new selectors and also into ones which are already in the market.
