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.
