funkis is an Australian design company based in Sydney with strong Swedish influences. Part of our range is some of the best Swedish and Scandinavian designs complemented by our own collection of clothing, shoes and accessories. 

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.

funkis own design

The funkis ethos is based around customers who now demand style and sustainability, not only within the manufacturing process, but also within every aspect of a business. By manufacturing our clothing & jewellery in Australia, bags & shoes in Sweden, we can rely on Australia’s (and Sweden’s) industrial policies in combination with our own approach to a more sustainable business model, this way we can assure certain ethical standards are met.

Most of our design is deliberately timeless, our clogs and sandals have been part of our collection since 1996. We produce small runs to respond to demand from our customers and to create minimal wastage. We use sustainable sourced materials for our clogs and bags and end of runs fabrics for our clothing collection. Excellent quality in both design and material is essential to funkis and makes it possible for us to create a product our customers can wear for a long time.
