The type family "Weissenhof Grotesk" is inspired by the Weissenhofsiedlung
(Weissenhof estate) that was built in 1927 as one of the best examples
of the new, modern architecture in Germany. During planning and construction,
17 architects, among them Mies van der Rohe, Le Corbusier and Walter
Gropius, experimented with new materials and techniques, like the usage of
prefabricated parts and considering primarily basic geometric forms.
These ideas served as a basis for the new typeface. In collaboration with Dirk Wachowiak.
In November 2015 "Weissenhof Grotesk" was released by the Indian Type Foundry.
