funkis is an Australian design company based in Sydney with a strong Swedish influences. Part of our range is some of the best Swedish and Scandinavian design on offer, complemented by our own collection of clothing , shoes and accessories, proudly made in Sweden & Australia.
The word Funkis is an abbreviation of the Swedish word "funktionalism" which refers to the Functionalist style developed in the early 20 century. It was not only an architectural and furniture concept, it represented a whole new movement "to change the world". Everything was to be changed, the whole society, from town planning, architecture, furniture down to the very way people lived. The world at this point had a very positive outlook on the future and the big change industrialisation could bring to not only the rich but everyone in society.
For world famous Swedish Architects like Gunnar Asplund, a lot of what he did was built on his love for the democracy. He believed that the way the cities were built in the future should benefit everyone, to give everyone "a place in the sun" (“funkis stilen som byggde Sverige” Ingrid Sommar. Forum). This thinking is the very base for “funkis Swedish forms” as a business idea.
