Designed with Fredrik Gruber for Manifattura Pieces – a collaborative art project, Funkis is a display typeface drawn for bold lettering and signage. It comes in three different weights of all capital letters. The digits are inspired by the characteristic number signs, commonly used on functionalist buildings and houses. The characters are heavily inspired by the letters that Sigurd Lewerentz made for his poster for The Stockholm Exhibition in 1930, an event that had great impact on architecture and interior design in the years to come, and is considered the breakthrough of functionalism in Scandinavia. Funkis is the third contribution to our “Fabrik Suite”.
