Weissenhof Grotesk
The type family 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 – an architecture ­without any ornament, using ­basic geometric forms. 17 architects, among them Mies van der Rohe, Le Corbusier and Walter Gropius, created a model housing programme for the modern urbanite. A minimum of form should guarantee a maximum of freedom.
