Nobel offers personal variations on strict Bauhaus geometry. In 1929, three years after the Futura release, Sjoerd Henrik de Roos at Amsterdam explored alternative character sets to enliven basic Futura forms. The Nobel series was designed for Font Bureau by Tobias Frere-Jones, who fondly views Nobel as ‘Futura cooked in dirty pots & pans.’ The Extra Lights were added by Cyrus Highsmith & Dyana Weissman; FB 1993–2003
