The funkis name

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 the business. By manufacturing our clothing, jewellery in Australia and bags, shoes in Sweden. we can ensure that production is ethical on all levels. Australia (and Sweden) industrial policies in combination with our approach to a more sustainable business model, assures certain ethical standards are met.

Our designs have a strong Swedish influence, with some textile prints being designed by select Swedish freelance designers. Most of our design is deliberately timeless, like our clogs and sandal range which have been part of our collection since 1996. Excellent quality in both design and material is essential to us and our customers. We insist on offering products that are different and "exclusive" (yet affordable)'
