From A to Z (and even Æ, Ø, Å) Danish design company DESIGN LETTERS & FRIENDS have not only revived Arne Jacobsen's original typography dating back to 1937, but also added a joyous twist to the modern interior scene.

Only a noisy selection of multi-coloured ones was flooding the market and from a monochrome, Scandinavian point of view.. that was just not an option!
