Nobel offers personal variations on strict Bauhaus geometry. In 1929, three years after the Futura release, Sjoerd Hendrik 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

Nobel is also available for online use with @font-face through the Webtype hosted font service.
