Funkis is a design store featuring objects made exclusively in Sweden and Australia. I’ve passed by the Victorian townhouse shopfront many times but never paid attention to Funkis until last Saturday. Inside, I discovered a bright space composed of several sections and styled with specific attention to detail. Each object placed in visual harmony with it’s surrounds.

The tailor-made wooden shelves showcase a selection of well designed objects, some being hand-crafted. I was seduced by their simplicity and reference to the past. I left with a hand cream and an oak nail brush made by visually impaired craftsmen as a gift for a friend’s birthday.
